Ultra Unlock Part 1: Time Overview (Via TheSilphRoad)

I hope we also get Archen and Tirtouga in the wild
At better than unown-ish tier rarity like we get normally.
not sure why they've been held back for so long. they were far too rare even when they were in eggs.
I once saw an Archen in the wild and couldn’t believe it.
My first one was from the wild. Then, I hatched two of them back-to-back during the prehistoric Pokemon in Friend Eggs thing they did a while back. I haven't seen Archen since. I still have never seen/caught Tirtouga in the wild or hatched one.
I saw one three days ago, but it was unfortunately late at night and also at pokestop a good distance away from me and would've taken me 20 minutes on foot. :(
I actually found an archen in the wild about a week ago. No idea why it spawned, but it did and I was happy to catch it.
That’s what I’m saying. To me that’s the determining factor to see if this is a trash event.
Just evolved my Archen. 200+ km of walking to get enough candy.
I just used all the rare candies I got out of go fest.
I'm closing in on 300 RC, and I have no clue what to do with them. I'm kind of solid for Diagla (Machamp army, plus a couple of ground types if it's sunny). I'm F2P, so it's a ton of space that could be freed up.
Mewtwo and Giratina always helpful.
I finally got my first 90%+ Mewtwo (20+ encounters). My highest IV was my shadow (11/14/15). So perhaps with Mewtwo rotating out I'll boost a non-shadow.
I thought about Noibat, but I don't wanna waste RC on a dex entry. I'm halfway there (220-ish Noibat candies).
I might just hold off and see what rolls around after Dialga.
Actually had an Archen spawn next to our building yesterday.
Or at least back in eggs at a decent rate. And add Axew to that list.
There was a time... long, long ago... where we got actual bonuses for these unlocks (think XP, dust, hatch distance, etc.).
I don't see how this is much different than any other event that we have every week or two...
Pretty much. These were events they already had planned and we “unlocked” them.
That's exactly what it is lol
I'm ok with a free unown in my Dex :)
Now the only time they give us exp or dust bonuses for events, the events are only 2 or 3 days. Or spotlight hour. I miss the days of a week or two week long event with 2x or 3x dust.
We just got may with two full weeks of 3xp, and a recent bidoof week with 2x,3x,4x xp… 🤨
Right. I meant more with the stardust bonuses.
You can get thousands of Stardust per day by surrendering all your GBL matches. Takes 10 minutes
Where are Amaura and Tyrunt anyway?
Where are Archen and Tirtouga anyway?
You guys are just making up names now
I went to a beach biome and caught both "in between" events when they can actually spawn.
They need to add the other fossil Pokémon! Tyrunt, Amaura, Tirtouga and Archen! I’m tired of seeing Shieldon everywhere
Can I ask what Voltorb has to do with time? I understand the other Pokémon are fossils, you can argue Porygon has something to do with time being a virtual Pokémon
Voltorb's appearances are actually fairly recent - appearing around the same time as the modern pokeball -, so it counts as a futuristic pokemon
Maybe it's a reference to the voltorb alarm clock in the first [episode of the Pokemon anime](https://i.imgur.com/1BzKhfK.jpg).
Seriously excited for this. All my favs!
Only issue is it's magneton in 3 star raids. Not magnemite.
I await the day when we can get more Archen and Tirtouga
You mean any Archen....?
wow this is... I expected them to ignore the new ones because they are super reluctant to add pokemon for some reason, but not even archen and tirtouga? this is not an "Ultra" anything
Shiny Unown U isn't new?
It's like how they marketed a chance to find shiny Aron in the wild a few events ago... I expect more recycled non-rewards in the future too. As a Day 1 player, it's frustrating.
was it able to be shiny before?
Yes. During last year's Ultra unlock.
YESSS Golurk on raids <3
I love Golurk for the electric rocket grunt.
It’s good for electric grunts?
Mud slap / Earth power. I don’t think I’ve had to shield or switch out in a while.
Garchomp is my go to. Triple resists electric, hits like a truck and we just had a com day so easy to have one at 50.
Despite the Comm Day, some events, and eggs/encounters I'm still waiting on a 96-100% Gibble. It probably doesn't make much difference (I have 3x 93% that I evolved on Comm Day), but I'll be pissed if I power-up one then land a better one.
With the grunts I try to use decent second-tier pokemon that I wouldn't otherwise use. Same with T3 raids, where I try to use 6 different non-legendaries.
Garchomp is the best ground attacker in the game for PVE, the only pokemon that threatens to dethrone it is Primal Groudon with precipe blades and who knows whether we will even get that. So realistically you could max 6 of them before you have to start worrying that you might find a better one, so imo if you have the candy power all 3 to 40 and save XL for a better one if you wish.
Unlock the ability to give us your money!!
I am so happy with this event! It's been a while since I got motivated to do active shiny hunting (excluding GoFest). The new ones look cool and I want badly the green Kabuto!
New shinies are nice.
I’ll finally get to finish the December community day research I’ve been struggling to find Porygon for.
No Tirtouga or Archen spawns announced (but still hopeful).
I’ll get Golurk before Golett and that will bother me in the Dex.
I hope cubone is also gonna spawn more in the wild so I can finally complete the Let's Go Meltan research mission.
Saaaaaaaaame I’ve been stuck forever
I shouldn't have gone so hard at Dialga and palkia during gofest 🙄.
Part 1 looks way better than part 2
Part 1 is for fighting (Rampardros for PvE, Bastion for PvP, Dialga for both) and Part 2 is for collecting (other regions' Pokémon and forms), so it seems fairly balanced for the two core mechanics of the series taken together.
Is this only available to people who paid for GOFest?
no…should be available for everyone
No that would suck lol
My lucky Hundo Rampardos is going to be maxed out by the end of this "event" hopefully.
I was wondering if you might be willing to put your considerable graphic design talents into a new venture. An update of the [Grand Unified Catch Theory](https://www.reddit.com/r/TheSilphRoad/comments/7e832b/grand_unified_catch_theory_as_a_single_graphic/) graphic could be tremendously helpful for the Pokémon Go community.
The old graphic lacks current modifiers like silver pinap, platinum medals, and 2x transfer candy events. A generous Redditor ([SuperJelle](https://www.reddit.com/user/SuperJelle/)) has offered to provide the formula and all the numbers for such an update.
Edit: Pagination issues.
Yay look at all these nice shinies I won’t ever find :/
Looks like a solid time of shiny hunting at least, lots I don’t have. After not getting any legendary shinies during go fest maybe PoGo will let me have one Dialga please?
I NEED shiny aero!!!!!
Can I ask a genuine questions and I don't mean to be rude, but why do we have 3 infographics for the same events? I like infographics and all, but sure seems a bit excessive.
Different people make different infographics
Magnemite in 3* raids????
It's a Magneton according to the press release.
These two weeks of POGO are definitely what I look forward to the most in years.
I hope that T3 boss is Magneton, not Magnemite.
Cranidos looks like a mini groudon and shieldon looks like his armor got waxed.
God I’m catching so many Porygons and praying for a shiny.
Not too happy about the eggs... can't seem to get my hands on a damn Cleffa after 3000 egg hatches. Thats the only Johto Pokemon I don't have.
This puts a smile on my face...
I still need to unlock Meltan. Do hatching mons from eggs count as “catching” them? I need anorith and lileeps.
Will Dialga have a new move to make it good in PvE?
Magneton is under 3 star, not Magnemite
We're getting ULTRA-Unown again, aren't we? Man, Unown stopped being exciting two years ago, why are you still keeping them locked away? At least come up with a new word to spell out...
This starts 11 local time right? Do the eggs have to be received after that time or gifts generated?
I don’t think archen and tirtouga r a part of the event and I’m gonna lose my mind if they aren’t 😡archen is what I want literally the most and I missed the egg event
