Pokemon Go Pulls Falinks From Raids Due to Bug

Pokemon Go players will not be able to battle Falinks in raids due to a strange visual bug. Today is Pokemon Go's Ultra Unlock - Part 3 event, which adds several new Pokemon from Pokemon Sword and Shield to the game. Originally, the event was set to add the Fighting-type Pokemon Falinks as a 3-Star Raid Boss, but Niantic unexpectedly announced that Falinks would no longer appear in raids. Instead, Machamp will appear in 3-Star raids until Thursday and will then be replaced by Gengar. To make up for Falinks' removal from raids, the Pokemon will appear more often in the wild and can also still be encountered in Field Research.
