Pokemon Go developer Niantic is holding another makeup event in the game later this week. Due to technical issues that affected the recent Dragon Week Ultra Unlock event, Niantic is making the Dragon Week Timed Research rewards available again from August 21-26.
During that time, players will be able to complete a new series of Timed Research tasks. Although the activities will be different from those that were available during Dragon Week, the rewards will be the same, so players will have another opportunity to catch two Deino if they can complete the tasks.
Niantic notes that the makeup event will only revolve around Timed Research, so no other aspects of Dragon Week will be brought back. You can read more details about the makeup event on the official Pokemon Go website.
In the meantime, the third Ultra Unlock event, Unova Week, is currently underway. Until August 21, Gen 5 Pokemon like Cottonee, Emolga, and others will appear in the game more frequently than usual, while the Mythical Pokemon Genesect will be available in standard five-star Raids.
Niantic is also holding a poll this weekend to determine the next two Community Day Pokemon. On August 22, players will have a chance to vote for one of four Pokemon: Caterpie, Charmander, Grimer, or Porygon. The pocket monster that receives the most votes will be selected as the featured Pokemon for September’s Community Day, while the runner-up will be October’s. You can read more details about the voting process here.
