Now Playing: Pokemon Go September Community Day Starts Soon - GS News Update

The latest teaser features a silhouette of Yamask, an unsettling Ghost-type first introduced in Pokemon Black and White. According to Yamask's Pokedex entry, the Pokemon carries around a mask of the face it had when it was alive, and it would occasionally look at the mask and begin to cry. Yeah.

Niantic hasn't confirmed how many Gen 5 Pokemon will initially arrive in Go, although this marks the fourth teaser the developer has dropped in the lead up to the final wave of Ultra Bonuses. Prior teaser images featured the silhouettes of Black and White's three starter Pokemon: the Grass-type Snivy, the Fire-type Tepig, and the Water-type Oshawott. You can take a look at them below.

The third wave of Ultra Bonuses will arrive on September 16. In addition to the aforementioned Pokemon, we know that Klink and its Shiny form will appear in Raid Battles, while Shiny Patrat and Shiny Lillipup will be available in the wild. Mewtwo will also return to five-star Raids during the final week of Ultra Bonuses, and this time, it'll know the Psychic-type attack Psystrike. Players will also have a chance to encounter Shiny Mewtwo.

In the meantime, the second wave of Ultra Bonuses are still available, giving you a few more days to hatch region-exclusive Pokemon from 7 km eggs and encounter all four forms of Deoxys in Raids. This month's Community Day, meanwhile, takes place this Sunday, September 15, and it features the Gen 4 starter Turtwig.
