The last Pokémon Go Ultra Unlock bonus week, Unova Week, will take place from Aug. 14 at 4 p.m. ET until Aug. 21 at 4 p.m. ET.

This week spotlights Pokémon from the Unova region. Sewaddle, Cottonee, Emolga, and Bouffalant will all be making their Pokémon Go debut, and be added to the game.

Unova region Pokémon will be hatching out of seven kilometer eggs, as well as appearing in the wild. Bouffalant will also be appearing in the wild and hatching from five kilometer eggs in New York City and “the surrounding areas.” What areas directly get Bouffalant have not been specified.

Roggenrola will also appear in raids and has a chance to appear Shiny. Genesect will be the focus of five-star raids during the event period.

To make the most of the event, we recommend popping an Incense to try to find any of the new Unova-region Pokémon. Should you find a Sewaddle or Cottonee, consider using a Pinap Berry to get more candy so you can evolve them. While these presumably won’t be particularly rare spawns once the event ends, it’s better to collect their candy now than to try to hunt them down once the spawn pool widens.
