Week 3 of the Pokemon Go Ultra Bonus Challenge will go live later today (September 16) bringing in the much anticipated addition of Gen 5.
Trainers have been enjoying the rewards of the Ultra Bonus Challenge as a result of completing the field research task milestones throughout the summer. The bonuses have been spread out over three separate weeks and we now approach the final week, which is arguably the most exciting of all.
The first two weeks provided new shiny Pokemon, Johto legends and even Deoxys in normal raid battles. While these were excellent bonuses in their own right, there's little doubt the main event of the Ultra Bonus Challenge is the introduction of generation 5.

The third week will run from September 16, 1pm PDT (4pm EDT and 9pm BST) to September 23, 1pm PDT (4pm EDT and 9pm BST).
Niantic have been relatively coy about which Pokemon will be included in the Gen 5 unveiling, until now. The official Pokemon Go Twitter has shared which Pokemon will be added and where you can find them.
The following "and more" will be available to catch in the Pokemon Go wild:
