Rings In Sky Pokemon Go: Sword & Shield Event, What will Portals in Sky do?

Sportskeeda 21 August, 2021 - 12:52am

As the Pokemon Go Ultra Unlock Part 3 has begun from Saturday, 20 August, players are noticing strange rings in the air above the map. These rings have also appeared in the past on the closing day of Pokemon Go Gest 2021 and along with the Ultra Unlock bonus week trailer. For those who are wondering about the rings of the sky in Pokemon Go, these rings are portals in space created by a Pokemon. 

The rings are a non-playable asset and cannot be controlled or interacted with by the player, and hence, their only purpose in the game is to provide a story for the appearance of new Pokemons. However, considering that the rings are created by Hoopa, it can be speculated that the mythical Pokemon will be added to the game soon. As the Ultra Unlock event ends on 31 August, the rings might remain in the game until then.

Why are there rings/portals in the overworld sky, and what they do in Pokémon Go? | Dot Esports

They aren't much more than a visual treat.

With the start of Pokémon Go’s Ultra Unlock Part Three: Sword and Shield, players have started noticing some mysterious rings appearing in the air above the overworld map. 

These rings have made previous appearances over the last several weeks, namely during the final day of Pokémon Go Fest 2021 and the trailer for the last Ultra Unlock bonus week. 

For players who don’t know, each ring is being created by the mythical Pokémon, Hoopa, which has the ability to warp space, allowing it to transport items by passing them through its hoop. Most notably, its alternate form, Hoopa Unbound has the ability to control and summon powerful Legendary Pokémon.

The entire Sword and Shield Ultra Unlock event is based around Hoopa’s rings bringing various Pokémon from the most recent Pokémon games into Pokémon Go, which could potentially lead to Hoopa itself being added to the game in the near future after more than a month of teasing it. 

Outside of providing a convenient reason for new Pokémon to be appearing and a cool concept for Niantic to play with visually, the rings don’t actually mean anything in-game since you can’t interact with them. 

They will presumably remain in the sky until Ultra Unlock Part 3 ends on Aug. 31. Until then, you can enjoy new Pokémon from Galar appearing and event-exclusive research.

Look up in the sky, it’s a portal!

Pokémon Go players might be looking up into the sky and wondering what’s going on right now. During the Ultra Unlock Part 3: Sword and Shield event, many Pokémon from the Galar region appear worldwide because of these portals. Where did the rings and portals come from, and why are they in Pokémon Go?

The primary reason for the many rings and portals is because of the mythical Pokémon, Hoopa. It appeared during the last day of Pokémon Go Fest 2021 in mid-July when it brought in multiple legendary Pokémon from across the entire game for Pokémon Go Fest players to fight against them.

Now, for the Sword and Shield event, Hoopa is causing even more chaos by bringing Pokémon originally discovered in the Galar region. These Pokémon include Falinks, Skwovet, Wooloo, and the legendary Pokémon Zacian. Other Galarian Pokémon, like Galarian Zigzagoon, Galarian Stunfisk, Galarian Darumaka, and others, have already been in the game for over a year now. Still, they’re also spawning at an increased rate in the wild, raids, and in 7km eggs.

Basically, the rings and portals in the sky are a flavored backdrop to the current event happening in Pokémon Go. We can expect them to continue to remain in the sky until the event ends on August 31 in your local area. These do not do anything, and you cannot interact with them.
