These Are The Galarian Pokémon Coming To Pokémon GO

Niantic has announced that, due to an oddity in time caused by the mischievous Mythical Pokémon Hoopa, a portal has opened allowed some Galarian species to arrive in Pokémon GO long before the full Generation Eight reveal. Let's take a look at each of the species that will be available during the upcoming Ultra Unlock Part Three: Sword & Shield event and how trainers will be able to encounter them.

Galarian Pokémon will also appear as encounters in Timed and Field Research, but no further details were given.

The full details of the event are up at the Pokémon GO blog:

The final part of this year's Ultra Unlock will feature the Pokémon GO debuts of two Legendary Pokémon first found in the Galar region, Zacian and Zamazenta, in their Hero of Many Battles forms! It appears that the one who brought them to Pokémon GO was none other than Hoopa, which recently caused mischief during Pokémon GO Fest 2021. Alongside them, Skwovet, Greedent, Wooloo, Dubwool, and Falinks will be arriving in Pokémon GO. If you're lucky, you might even find a Shiny Galarian Meowth, a Shiny Galarian Farfetch'd, a Shiny Galarian Weezing, or a Shiny Galarian Stunfisk!
