As of September 9th, Pokémon GO's new Ultra Bonuses and Rewards are officially live, giving you a chance to hatch regional Pokémon from eggs and to challenge a mythic Pokémon in regular raids for the very first time. These features will all be available in the game from now until September 23rd at 4pm ET, and here is everything you need to know in order to get out there and continue catching 'em all.
If you've yet to get your hands on all of the Kanto regional Pokémon, you're in luck, as all four of them will be available in 7km eggs until Sept. 23. You'll have a chance to hatch Tauros, Farfetch'd, Mr. Mime, and Kangaskhan, and if you're really lucky, you might get one of their newly-released shiny forms, meaning a green Mr. Mime, gray Kangaskhan, pink Farfetch'd, or green Tauros. These Pokémon will be available in 7km eggs picked up during these next few weeks only, so you won't be able to hatch them from previously collected eggs. In order to give you a hand though, incubators will only require half distance to hatch eggs, so getting Farfetch'd in the upcoming weeks will be a lot easier than traveling to Asia to find one in the wild.
On top of the regional eggs, the mythical Pokémon, Deoxys, will also be available in raids in all four of its forms: normal, attack, defense, and speed. Previously, you could only challenge Deoxys if you received an invite-only EX Raid pass, but that won't be a requirement during this event. A Deoxys raid hour will also be taking place on September 11th, from 6 to 7pm EST, giving you a great opportunity to snag this super rare Pokémon if you've yet to do so. Deoxys will only be available in raids until September 16th at 4pm, so make sure you make some time to go out and get one!
These ultra rewards and special raid events are just another entry in the long series of updates and events that Niantic has implemented in order to keep Pokémon GO fresh and exciting. Although the developer does a great job of giving us chances to go out and get new and exciting Pokémon, they always do so within a limited window, so be sure to take advantage of this latest event before it ends!
