Pokemon Go - Deoxys Raids, New Shiny Pokemon, Plus More Ultra Bonuses Now Live
The second week of PoGo Ultra Bonuses has arrived.
GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.
Pokemon Go's second set of Ultra Bonuses are now available. For the next several days, players around the world will be able to hatch Pokemon that are typically region-exclusive from 7 km eggs. On top of that, the Mythical Pokemon Deoxys, which has up until now appeared exclusively in EX Raids, will be available in standard Raid Battles for a limited time.
From September 9-16, all four forms of Deoxys will appear as bosses in five-star Raids, making this your first opportunity to capture them outside of the invite-only EX Raids. Additionally, you'll have a chance to hatch Farfetch'd, Kangaskhan, Mr. Mime, and Tauros from 7 km eggs--and if you're very lucky, you may hatch their Shiny forms.
More exclusive bonuses are headed your way, Trainers! Enjoy:— Pokémon GO (@PokemonGoApp) September 9, 2019

If you need help challenging Deoxys in battle, Pokemon that are effective against it, such as Absol, Tyranitar, Houndoom, and more, will also appear as Raid bosses throughout the week, giving you a chance to build a powerful team before taking Deoxys on. You can see the full list of this week's Ultra Bonus rewards below.
Niantic still has one more wave of Ultra Bonuses on the way, and it is saving perhaps the most exciting batch for last. Beginning September 16, the first Gen 5 Pokemon will appear in Pokemon Go. Among other Pokemon, players will have a chance to encounter Klink and its Shiny form in Raid Battles, while Shiny versions of Patrat and Lillipup will appear in the wild. Mewtwo will return to Raids as well, and this time, you'll have a chance of encountering its Shiny form.
Before the third set of Ultra Bonuses arrive, Niantic will host a Pokemon Go Community Day. This month's event takes place this Sunday, September 15, and the featured Pokemon is Turtwig, the Grass-type starter from Pokemon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. You can catch up on other recent Pokemon Go news below.
