Pokemon Go will have the opportunity to grab Pokemon from five distinct "habitats" during this weekend's Pokemon Go Fest. One feature of this weekend's live event is rotating spawns based on five distinct habitats. Each habitat appears twice per day and are fixed for all players around the world. The Water Habitat appears at 1 PM ET and 6 PM ET, the Grass Habitat appears at 2 PM ET and 7 PM ET, the Fire Habitat appears at 3 PM ET and 8 PM ET (for those players whose event is still running after 8 PM ET,) the Battle Habitat appears at 4 PM ET and 9 PM ET, and the Friendship Habitat appears at 4 PM ET. The Habitats will also be running through the same rotation tomorrow.
Players also can complete Global Challenges to unlock 3 special Ultra Events. The first Ultra Event is Dragon Week, which will add increased spawns of Pokemon like Alolan Exeggutor, Horsea, Dratini, Trapinch, Swablu, and Bagon to the game from July 31st to August 7th. Players will also have the opportunity to capture Gible (an extremely rare Dragon-type Pokemon) in the wild and find both Gible and Deino in 7 KM eggs. Shiny Deino will also be added to Pokemon Go as part of the event, and players will be able to battle Rayquaza in raids.
After Dragon Week is Enigma Week, an event that features increased spawns of Staryu, Jigglypuff, Clefairy, Lunatone, Solrock, Baltoy, Bronzor, and Elgyem. Deoxys will also appear in 5-Star Raids, as will its Shiny variant. The "U" "L" "T" "R" and "A" Unown will also appear in raids during the week.
Wrapping up the Ultra Unlock events is Unova Week, which will see Bouffalant added as a New York regional Pokemon, as well as Pokemon like Sewaddle, Cottonnee, and Roggenrola appear more often in the wild. Genesect will appear as a Raid Boss, as will Roggenrola.
Pokemon Go Fest will take place this weekend, with players getting to participate in special storylines and Research Challenges if they purchase a ticket for the event in the in-game store.
