And if that wasn't enough, Niantic has announced that Sword & Shield's legendary flagship Pokemon, Zacian and Zamazenta, will also be coming to the game in their crowned forms. Both will be available during Raid Time on August 25 (Zacian) and August 30 (Zamazenta) from 18-19 PM local time.


Likewise, Hoopa was supposed to finally make her in-game debut, but apparently now isn't the time. Despite this, this creature will be responsible for bringing the Pokémon of Galar to the mobile title thanks to its rings, so the arrival of this Mythical Pokémon is still very close.

The first Galar region event will be available during Ultra Unlock Part 3, from August 20 at 10am to August 31 at 20pm local time.
