There's a nice surprise for Part 3 of Pokemon Go Fest 2021's Ultra Unlock event! Pokemon Go Galar Pokemon will be making their debut later this month — and yes, there will be some Legendary Pokemon.

As with previous years, Pokemon Go has lined up a bunch of special events for its anniversary through the Pokemon Go Fest. This is the game's fifth anniversary and Niantic has some nice surprises this time around — soon, Trainers will be able to play with some iconic 'mons from Pokemon Sword and Shield.
