One from the big prizes in the Special Weekend Event in May 2022 in Pokémon GO is the increased spawn rate of Unknown V. for several players. The whole event is a bit complicated as it is a sponsored celebration restricted to specific regions and specific players only. Consider everyone wants to achieve the rare Pokémon, we wanted to simplify it for you personally. So here’s everything you need to know to trap Unown V during the Special Weekend – May 2022 event in Pokémon GO.
How to catch Unown V in Pokémon GO
As a Pokémon GO Sponsored Event, only players in the United States with a Verizon membership qualify to sign up. Certain elements of the big event are for sale to everyone, but Unown V spawns are exclusive to those in the united states with an active Verizon account. If you meet these requirements, you still need to make sure you get a ticket towards the event. So, follow this informative guide for the steps to do so while they are still available.
Once that’s done, you’re all set. So just hold back until midnight on Saturday May 29th for that event to go reside in your time zone. Once that’s done, there is yet another thing left to complete if you wish to catch Unown V during the special weekend. Unown won’t increase its spawn rate within the wild, only via incense. So activate a few and prepare to catch Pokémon. Over the weekend event, which runs from midnight on May 29th to 11:59 pm on Sunday, May 30th, you'll receive 4x Catch XP.
Once the incense is on it’s just a waiting game if you’re lucky. Unown V is boosting for that Verizon area of the event, so only use incense as much as you are able to and one should go to some time. You don’t need to be in almost any specific area except the United States for that event to become activated. However you may be wondering should you be working on catching more than just several Unown Vs, such as should you carry on before you see Shiny Unown.

Unfortunately, apart from adding more Unown V for your collection, there’s you don't need to keep trying to get them. Shiny Unown V and it is other letter variants aren't part of this event.

You’ll need to wait for another event in the future to feature the ultra-rare Pokémon.
