A plethora of events are available in Pokémon Go until Sept. 9 to celebrate the completion of all three sets of global challenge missions.

This first week of bonuses focuses on the Johto region, increasing the spawns of Pokémon from that region. If players are lucky, they’ll be able to find a Shiny Sentret or Gligar, which were added this week.

The Legendary dogs, Raikou, Entei, and Suicune, are also returning to raids this week, so if you missed your chance to grab one before, you can get one now. Since they’ve appeared Shiny in the past, there will be a chance to grab them Shiny again, but at a lowered rate in comparison to their specific raid days.

Unown that spell out “ultra” will be available from 10 kilometer eggs this week as well, so if you have yet to grab an Unown for your Pokédex, make sure to spin stops and try to grab some eggs. To help with this, Incubators will hatch eggs in half the travel distance as well.

Those are some pretty solid Shinies.
