All August 2021 Events Happening in Pokémon GO

August is looking pretty stacked when it comes to new content in Pokemon Go. This guide will show players every bit of new content coming to the game in the month of August. It is a bit slower when compared to July which just held its annual Go Fest event. Players from all around the world were able to participate in legendary raids, complete Special Research Tasks, capture new regional Pokemon, and share a positive Pokemon experience with their peers. Although, tons of what was unlocked during Go Fest have carried over into the month of August. Here is every event for players to look forward to this August.


During Go Fest, players were tasked with completing Global Challenges. These tasks can only be done if the entire Pokemon Go community came together to finish them. Millions of players from around the globe were able to complete all 24 Global Challenges with little trouble. As a reward for this, Niantic has released the Ultra Unlock event which is taking place this August with a slew of new content. Here is every new event happening in August 2021.
