Pokemon GO Raids for June are about to get a major shake-up.

Trainers have quite a bit to look forward to this month according to the game's development blog. Trapinch will be available as a Research Breakthrough encounter for the entire month. Unova and Galar Pokemon will be making their debut, as well, as part of the Throwback Challenges introduced earlier this year. Additionally, there will be a special solstice-themed event around June 19 and a return of the "Bug Out" event starting June 26.

The most exciting announcement of all, of course, is the introduction of the legendary electric dragon, Zekrom, into the raid pool.
