Pokémon GO Unleashes Ultra Unlock: Paldea Event

Pokémon GO Trainers, get ready for a thrilling new adventure! Thanks to the achievements of Pokémon GO Fest 2023, you have not only unlocked exciting bonuses for the upcoming “A Paldean Adventure” event but also activated a brand-new event called Ultra Unlock: Paldea. From September 10 to September 15, 2023, you will have the opportunity to embark on an incredible journey filled with new Pokémon debuts and fantastic rewards.

The Paldea region introduces a range of new Pokémon to the game. Among them is Bombirdier, which will make its grand entrance. And if you're fortunate, you might even come across its Shiny variant. Joining Bombirdier are Nymble, Lokix, Pawmi, Pawmo, Pawmot, Frigibax, Arctibax, and Baxcalibur. Evolving these Pokémon will require specific amounts of candy, such as 50 Nymble Candy to evolve Nymble into Lokix, 25 Pawmi Candy to evolve Pawmi into Pawmo, and so on.

In addition to the new Pokémon, special Ultra Unlock bonuses await you. The letters A, D, E, L, and P of the Unown Pokémon will appear worldwide, and you may even encounter their Shiny forms. The Timed Research featuring encounters with Lechonk will also be extended throughout the event. Not to mention, there will be fantastic perks, including quadruple XP and quadruple Stardust for catching Pokémon.

For a fee of $5.00, you can access exclusive event-themed research tasks that offer rewards like encounters with Pawmi and Rare Candy. And keep an eye out for Showcases at select PokéStops, where you can enter Pawmi or Nymble.

Starting from September 13, 2023, new avatar items inspired by The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero Part 1: The Teal Mask DLC from the Pokémon Scarlet or Pokémon Violet games on Nintendo Switch will be available for all Trainers.

Finally, you have the opportunity to purchase and gift tickets for the Timed Research to your Pokémon GO friends who have achieved a Friendship level of Great Friends or higher. It's important to note that these purchases are non-refundable and will only be available until September 14, 2023, at 8:00 p.m. local time.

Get ready for the most exciting Pokémon journey yet with the Ultra Unlock: Paldea event. Your next adventure awaits!
