The second of the Ultra Unlock Bonuses is Enigma Week. Trainers around the globe were able to complete 16 challenges, and so all Pokémon Go players are being rewarded with an entire week of mysterious and enigmatic Pokémon. What can we expect from Enigma Week?

What are Ultra Unlock Bonuses

As is tradition with Pokémon GO Fest events, Ultra Unlock bonuses are rewards ticket holders can earn for everyone by completing challenges. Throughout day one of Pokémon GO Fest 2020, Trainers had over 30 global challenges tied to the Rotating Habitats. Every eight challenges that were completed by players around the world earned one additional Ultra Unlock event week for a total of three events. The second of those weeks begins now, Friday, August 8, 2020.
