Hoopa in Pokemon Go
Unfortunately, Hoopa won’t be available as a reward for the Strange Rings Special Research story. Rumor has it, the cute little ‘mon will make its debut in Part 3 of Ultra Unlock.
Hoopa is an incredible Gen 6 Pokemon that comes in two forms: Hoopa Confined and Hoopa Unbound.
Check out below the official trailer for Pokemon the Movie: Hoopa and the Clash of Ages:
However, even if we won’t get the Gen 6 Pokemon as a reward, there are still many chances to see it happen soon! After all, the details for Part 3 have yet to be revealed.
