Pokemon GO players at GO Fest Yokohama and around the world power worked hard over the last few weeks to unlock some amazing rewards in the mobile AR game. The Triple Stardust event is already underway and the Ultra Bonuses are now scheduled throughout September, with more details yet to arrive.
A series of tweets featuring tons of Star emoji yesterday suggest that Jirachi Research is coming to the game, but that likely won't be the only reward players unlocked. The Pokemon GO community is now looking forward to three weeks of Ultra Bonuses running through most of September.
A lot of the details about the coming events are still being kept under wraps until August 20, but we have the dates, times, and vague descriptions to work with. At least this way players can start planning ahead for whatever is coming...

A big thank-you to the 150,000 Trainers who joined us for #PokemonGOFest2019 in Yokohama and the millions of Trainers who completed Professor Willow’s Global Challenge! Here are some highlights. https://t.co/yGAoWHeLeW pic.twitter.com/nVqlhenHiR— Pokémon GO (@PokemonGoApp) August 15, 2019
That's not a ton of details to work with, but there are some new facts here to get excited about. Week one will likely be an event that helps players finally finish their Johto Pokedex (we had a similar event last year for Kanto). The second week will offer something Mythical and then third will bring back some Kanto Regionals.
Be sure to check back in the coming days for more details on the Ultra Bonus events and other Pokemon GO strategy guides, news, and updates.
