Pokémon Go Fest 2020 is a bust weekend for every participating trainer. And Niantic is giving players more incentive to join in on the festivities by providing details on this year’s Ultra Unlock bonus conditions. 

The Ultra Unlock bonus could result in up to three weeks of extra content and events for all players in Pokémon Go, which would start with a Dragon-themed week almost immediately after Go Fest 2020 ends. 

Those bonuses can only be achieved if players participating in Go Fest 2020 complete a specific amount of global challenges in the Global Challenge Arena. This year, there will be a total of 32 global challenges laid out for all trainers to work together and complete.

For every eight challenges completed throughout the first day of Go Fest 2020, an extra week of Ultra Unlock events will be added, with each of the three weeks bringing different themes and rewards. 

If you plan on helping earn those bonuses during Go Fest 2020, here are each of the requirements needed to unlock the bonus content and what rewards you can find inside. There will also be Timed Research for each Ultra Unlock bonus week.
