New Hisuian Pokémon arrived this past week in Pokémon GO as part of the Ultra Unlock: Hisuian Discoveries event. The first Ultra Unlock event following Pokémon GO Fest 2022 was the memorable and exciting Adventure Week so let's see how this one measured up.
What worked in this Pokémon GO event
What didn't work in this Pokémon GO event
Collection Challenge over Special Research: A surge of Pokémon from the past seems very much like a call for a narrative Special Research. Instead, we got a wordless Collection Challenge that resulted in very minor rewards. Was it a big deal? No. But Niantic could've easily filled in a narrative reason that we are seeing ancient Pokémon in the wild the exact same way they gave a Hoopa-themed narrative reason for the early arrival of Galarian species.
Ultra Unlock continued in a strong way with Hisuian Discoveries. Stay tuned for Bleeding Cool's review of Hisuian Braviary Raid Day coming this week.
