Pokemon Go Enigma Week: Watch Out for Shiny Unown in Raids
Shiny Staryu and Deoxys will also be up for grabs.
Trainers, Enigma Week is about to begin in Pokemon Go! This Ultra Unlock event was unlocked during Pokemon Go Fest 2020, since trainers around the world successfully completed at least 16 global challenges during Day 1 of the event.
Enigma Week will take place from August 7 at 1 p.m. PT until August 14 at 1 p.m. PT.
During this event, Staryu, Jigglypuff, Clefairy, Lunatone, Solrock, Baltoy, Bronzor, and Elgyem will appear more often than normal in the wild. In addition, Cleffa, Igglybuff, Lunatone, Solrock, and Elgyem will have the chance to appear from 7 km Eggs that are collected during Enigma Week.
Finally, if you’re into Raids, Normal Forme Deoxys, Bronzong, Claydol, Elgyem, and the “U,” “L,” “T,” “R,” and “A” versions of Unown will be available to challenge in Raids during this event.
Throughout Enigma Week, you’ll have the chance (but unfortunately not the guarantee) to run into three different Shiny Pokemon: Shiny Staryu, Shiny Normal Forme Deoxys, and Shiny Unown.
While Shiny versions of Unown were also available to encounter during Pokemon Go Fest, it was the “G” and “O” versions of this Pokemon that appeared during Go Fest, and not the “ULTRA” versions that will appear during Enigma Week.
In a news post, Niantic, the developer of Pokemon Go, said that "these Shiny Unown will go back into hiding after Enigma Week is over."
