Players have a lot more to look forward to during the upcoming Hisuian Discoveries event, with a successfully completed Global Challenge during Pokémon Go Fest: Seattle leading to Ultra Unlock bonuses and a Raid Day being unlocked.

Now, running from the previously announced July 27 to Aug. 2, players will be able to enjoy more event bonuses, more encounters with rare Pokémon, and another Pokémon Go debut with Hisuian Braviary. 

Prior to shifting to Ultra Unlock Hisuian Discoveries, we already knew that Hisuian Growlithe, Hisuian Qwilfish, and Hisuian Sneasel would be appearing. Still, now, Panpour will also be appearing globally in raids and spawning in the wild. Hisuian Braviary will also be appearing in raids alongside Unown S on the new Raid Day from 11am to 2pm local time on July 31.

Players can also encounter Shiny Hisuian Braviary in those raids, with increased chances. 

New bonuses have been added for both the main event and Raid Day to give players more content as a reward for completing the Global Challenge during Go Fest: Seattle. Here are all of those updated bonuses that will be active. 

  • Main event
    • Friendship levels will increase faster than normal through opening Gifts, trading Pokémon, or battling together in raids, Gyms, or Trainer Battles
    • During the event, Trainers can open up to 45 Gifts and send up to 150 Gifts daily.
    • Trainers can store up to 30 Gifts until the end of the event.
  • Raid Day
    • Increased chance to receive Rare Candy XL from in-person Raid Battles.
    • Receive up to five free Raid Passes during the event and up to two hours afterward.
    • 50 percent more XP for winning Raid Battles.
