Niantic Labs recently announced the debut of Zamazenta, the legendary Pokemon from Sword and Shield, in Pokemon GO's Ultra Unlock Part 3 event featuring the Galar region.

Alongside its partner Zacian, Zamazenta is among a collection of fan-favorite Pokemon from the Galar region that were brought in thanks to Hoopa's mischief. According to the official blog post, Skwovet, Greedent, Wooloo, Dubwool, and Falinks will all be making their Pokemon GO debuts during Ultra Unlock Part 3: Sword and Shield. The event will run from Aug. 20 at 10:00 am local time to Aug. 31 at 8:00 pm local time.

As a legendary Pokemon, Zamazenta will only be found in 5-star raid battles. Zamazenta raid battles will occur during Week 2 of the event, from Aug. 26 at 10:00 am local time to Sept. 1 at 10:00 am local time. Both Zamazenta and Zacian will appear in their Hero of Many Battles forms.

Trainers should also keep an eye out for a Zamazenta Raid Hour on Aug. 30, from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm local time.

As the featured legendary Pokemon in Pokemon Shield, Zamazenta is a Fighting-type Pokemon that once worked with a king of the people to save the Galar region. Its Pokedex number is 889.

Other than the legendary Pokemon, there's plenty more to look forward to in Ultra Unlock Part 3. Trainers should look out for newly-added shiny versions of Galarian Meowth, Galarian Farfetch'd, Galarian Weezing, and Galarian Stunfisk. There's also a chance to encounter the rare spawn, Falinks!
