Part 3 of Pokemon Go’s Ultra Unlock 2021 event is here, and this time it’s focusing on Sword & Shield’s Galar region with a new set of Timed Research and Field Research tasks and rewards.
While most Trainers will be focused on the new Galar region arrivals like Falinks, Wooloo, Skwovet, and of course the Legendary creatures Zacian and Zamazenta, there’s also a new set of Timed Research and Field Research to be completed.
This is the final part of the Ultra Unlock 2021 event, which Trainers earned by completing a set of Global Challenges during Go Fest 2021 earlier this year. Trainers can enjoy the event features from August 20 to August 31, 2021.
Below, you’ll find all the information you need to complete both the Timed Research tasks and Field Research tasks during Ultra Unlock 2021: Sword & Shield, as well as the exciting rewards you’ll get for doing so.
