In this article, we will talk about the mobile title, within the context of which a special Ultra Bonus Week is arranged for the players. A lot of participators are involved in this process, and, as a result, Pokemon Go fans get access to a range of stunning in-game bonuses, such as new Pokemon and other pleasant surprises.

What creatures are coming?

The first week of Pokemon Go's Ultra Bonus Week, started September 2, is dedicated to the Johto region. The players are suggested to go and seek the new Shiny Pokemon, Sentret or Gligar, added to the existing list of the creatures. It is important to catch them in the wild, and only then the players are offered to figure out whether the gripped Pokemon are of Shiny form.

These new species differ from the others with lighter coloring. The fur of Sentret should be a kind of orange with brown while Gligar Shiny is able to change the color of its fur. Players were advised to pay attention to light purple and blue hues. If you manage to make it out from a distance, there is a special symbol identifying the new species that is marked near the Pokémon name.

There is also an Unknown Pokemon which is spelled out as Ultra. It has some special capabilities. So, try to grab some eggs – they will come in handy.

Another great reappearance is discussed widely among the players. Be ready to meet a new variation of Eevee. It will get a flower crown which will help to distinguish it from other similar monsters. You can continue hunting for it until November 1, 4 p.m. EDT. They say that this special Pokemon appears as a Research Breakthrough encounter. This Pokemon is able to evolve into all possible versions: Vaporeon, Umbreon, Flareon, Jolteon, Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, and Glaceon.

Aside from the Legendary Beasts, some other species will appear in the game. We are talking about those stunning dogs. You will be able to grab Raikou, Suicune, and Entei during the first week of the Ultra Bonus. All of them have Shiny forms. If you are lucky to catch them, you will get Pokemon that can stand against pure Electric, Fire and Water-type creatures appearing in Level 5 Raids.


The debuts and returns of Pokemon provide new chances in battles due to the expansion of the collection of creatures. The bonuses are needed to help to enhance the playing experience. This time they are as follows: you will be able to incubate the Eggs much faster. Apply the incubators during this period, which will hatch Eggs in double-quick time. We offer the new distances for every Egg: 2km -> 1km, 5km -> 2.5km, 7km -> 3.5km, 10km -> 5km.

Well, those are all the key events of the first Ultra Bonus week in Pokémon Go. They seem to be a rather convincing reason for players to participate. Tell us about your experience in the comments below. Have you already caught someone or do you have any other news about this event?
