Pokémon Go has announced that following issues that occurred during the recent Dragon Week, only the Timed Research, which is part of the content, will be rescheduled for August 21-26.

The highlight of the Dragon Week Timed Research was the ability to earn the extremely rare Pokémon Deino by completing a limited-time research task.

The only redo will be the Timed Research, and will not include the other content of Dragon Week, such as the Legendary Raid of Rayquaza and the increase in Dragon-type Pokémon in the wild and 7km eggs.

The reason for the re-run of the Timed Research is due to "some technical issues", but all players who were not affected, and even those who successfully completed all of the tasks, will be able to retry them uniformly.

The re-run Timed Research changes the task content slightly, but the rewards are the same. (The change in content is likely due to a different environment than the main Dragon Week event, such as wild appearances.)

The two Deinos you can get as a reward are classified as "Irate Pokémon". They are an amazing race, evolving into a "Hostile Pokémon" Zweilous and a "Brutal Pokémon" Hydreigon.

They don't usually appear in the wild, and we didn't see them very often even during Dragon Week when they were supposed to have been increased, so it's a pleasant surprise to get two of them.

Despite its relatively recent addition to Pokémon Go, the shiny version made its first appearance as early as Dragon Week, so even for trainers who have already evolved to Hydreigon, it's an opportunity to try to get a shiny Deino again, although with low probability.

An aside. Speaking of redoing due to a technical issue, Niantic held a make up event (apology event) on August 16, repeating some of the content of the big summer event, Pokemon GO Fest 2020, for which there was a problem.

Pokémon Go Fest 2020 makeup day will be held on August 16, 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.

However, the rate of appearance of the shiny version of Unown “G” and “O”, which was supposed to have a low probability of appearing in this makeup event, has been zero for a while now, with New Zealand, Japan, and other countries affected by the early start of the event.

While Niantic has acknowledged the problem, they have yet to reveal if there will be a response, but perhaps a makeup event will be set up to make up for the event.
