Dragon Week was the first Ultra Week unlocked after Pokemon Go Fest 2022, and was met with immense criticism for the nearly inaccessible Deino announced alongside other rare Dragon-type Pokemon. With the third and final Ultra week ending this week, Pokemon Go has announced a makeover event to make up for all the trainers' frustration during Dragon Week.
The announcement identifies Dragon Week issues as technical issues and appreciates the passion of the Pokemon Go community. Read about the Dragon Week incident here and find out why people were so upset that Pokemon Go is hosting a makeup first.
The event will take place from Friday, August 21, 2022 at 8 a.m. local time, until 22 p.m. on Wednesday, August 26, 2022.
During the event, Trainers will receive a new Timed Research very similar to the one that took place during Dragon Week. The only difference will be the tasks you need to complete to claim rewards. Rewards for completing the Research Task include an encounter with Dratini, Bagon, Deino, Alolan Exeggutor, and another Deino! This means everyone will get another chance at two Deino encounters! However, the makeover event will not feature any of the Dragon Pokémon appearing in the overworld that had occurred during Dragon Week. The only bonus is the research task which must be completed within the time limit.
In my Pokemon Go Worst Moments article, I talk about how there's usually some compensation when things go visibly bad in the game. In that article, I predicted that there would be no rewards. for the Deino disaster from Dragon Week, but I still had some hope. In the end, Pokemon Go and its developers, Niantic, proved me wrong and did what they could to catch up with everyone else; showing once again that Pokemon Go cares about its players and listens to its community.
