What else do you need to know about Enigma Week in Pokémon Go?
In addition to the Riddle Week research tasks, there are other bonuses you can take advantage of during this event in Pokémon Go.
The first is that Enigma Week marks the release of Elgyem and Beheeyem, psychic-type Pokémon from Generation 5, in Pokémon Go.
You can also find Staryu, Jigglypuff, Clefairy, Lunatone, Solrock, Baltoy and Bronzor in the wild. The shiny version of Staryu will also be released during Riddle Week, so if you’re looking for a Pokémon to focus on, we recommend Staryu!
Elgyem and Beheeyem can now be found in Pokémon Go.
Various Unown will also appear both in raids and in the wild during Enigma Week. The Unowns on offer are U, L, T, R, A and if you’re lucky you might even catch a shiny Unown.
Normal form Deoxys will also be available in five-star raids throughout this week, so if you need to add this Pokémon to your Pokédex or just want its shiny version, then now is the time to battle it.
In addition to Deoxys and the Unowns, you will also be able to fight Bronzong, Claydol, and Elgyem in raids.
Remember: you can attack remotely, so you can make both Deoxys and Unowns come to you.
Finally, you will also be able to hatch the following Pokémon from 7 km eggs:
Good luck with Enigma Week!
