Trainers, the mysterious Twitter countdown is scheduled to reach 0 today, likely around 1 PM PT. Niantic has put out five separate tweets, each published around 1 PM PT and each of them outlining Jirachi’s shape more and more. We’re not sure what will happen today: will Jirachi be released or will there be an announcement that it is coming at a later date?
Suffice to say, we’re expecting something to happen today at 1 PM PT. I’d wish we had more information, but unfortunately we don’t know. As discussed in Speculative Analysis of Professor Willow’s Global Challenge Ultra Bonus Unlock, Ultra Rewards Week 2 could be the period during which we have the opportunity to fight Jirachi:
Pokémon from across the globe will join in the celebration this week, along with a special appearance by a Mythical Pokémon that will be available to challenge in raids.
The rewards run from September 9, 2019, at 1 p.m. PDT to September 16, 2019, at 1 p.m. PDT, so today’s announcement would be nicely timed if it ends up being Jirachi in raids. However, it would be even more exciting if it turns out that Jirachi is not the hinted Mythical Pokemon, as it would mean something else is coming during the second rewards week.
