Sprigatito, Floragato, Meowscarada, Fuecoco, Crocalor, Skeledirge, Quaxly, Quaxwell, Quaquaval, Lechonk, and Oinkologne (both male and female variants) are all up first, with Lechonk even getting a Shiny variant at launch.
This starting batch debuts in Pokémon Go’s A Paldean Adventure event, which runs from 5th September until Sunday, 10th September. Other additions include Lechonk-focused Timed Research, Unown in global raids, and various event bonuses, as detailed in Niantic’s post.
Then, from 10th September to Friday, 15th September, more Paldea Pokémon – Nymble, Lokix, Pawmi, Pawmo, Pawmot, Bombirdier, Frigibax, Arctibax, and Baxcalibur – make their debut during the Ultra Unlock: Paldea event, with Bombirdier available as a Shiny on arrival.
The previous week’s raid and event bonuses, alongside Lechonk research tasks, continue to apply in week two, but Niantic is also introducing a paid Timed Research challenge, costing £4.49/$5 USD and featuring two encounters with Pawmi, the Pawmi Backpack avatar item, three Rare Candy, one Incubator, 10 Silver Pinap Berries, 921 Stardust, and 9210 XP.
