Hot off the heels of Pokémon GO Fest Seattle, a new worldwide event for all Trainers awaits in Pokémon GO. Transcending time and space, Hisuian Pokémon and more found in Pokémon Legends: Arceus will be appearing in-game briefly. Dubbed the Hisuian Discoveries event, Trainers will be able to catch Hisuian Voltorb (and evolve them into Hisuian Electrode) once more. As for new debuts, this time Trainers can add Hisuian Growlithe, Hisuian Qwilfish, Hisuian Sneasel, and Hisuian Braviary to their Pokédex!

Thanks to the Ultra Unlock bonuses, acquired by completing a Global Challenge issued during Pokémon GO Fest Seattle, Trainers can also find Panpour worldwide and do a bit of Unown hunting by seeking out Unown S in Raids. Seek out all Pokémon during this event with our guide below:
