In contrast with the ongoing themes, developers Niantic went off route. Redirecting the Ultra Unlock event, the third part will focus on the video game Pokémon Sword & Shield. 

Since June of last year, Niantic has been regularly adding Pokemon from the Galar region, and it could all be leading to this event. With Part 3, trainers can expect to see Skwovet, Greedent, Wooloo, Dubwool, and Falinks. Shiny Galarian Meowth, Shiny Galarian Farfetch’d, Shiny Galarian Weezing, and Shiny Galarian Stunfisk will hatch from 7km eggs.

Particularly, what stands out the most is the addition of Pokémon Sword & Shield Hero Duo of Legendaries: Zacian and Zamazenta. They will be a part of the Hero of Many Battles. While both will be a part of five-star raids, they will not be available at the same time. Trainers can expect Zacian to rule the gyms from August 20-26. Zamazenta will take over from August 26 till the end of the event.
