In Pokemon GO a Dragon Week makeup week will occur between Friday, Aug. 21, and Wednesday, Aug. 26. Dragon Week was the first of the Ultra Unlock events Unlocked by players during GO Fest 2020 and it features increased spawns of Dragon-type Pokemon as well as timed research challenges that rewarded players with an encounter with Deino. Not all players got the chance to experience the event due to technical difficulties.

The makeup week event will be held from 1:00 p.m. August 21 to 1:00 p.m. on Aug. 26. Obviously five days does not constitute a week but this is not the only big disappointment. One of the main features of the event, increased spawns of Dragon-type Pokemon will not be occurring during the makeup week. Only the timed research will be available to players. The timed research will have the same rewards as the original event but will feature different tasks. If you want to catch a Deino the event will be a good time to do so, but for other dragon type Pokemon you'll have to wait for another event to occur. Hopefully, another event will occur son that will feature dragon types for those that didn't get the chance to grind out candies during dragon week.
