Niantic, the makers of a little app that seems to have caught on - GO Pokémon, is it? - has announced that Pocket Monsters from the Unova region will start appearing on 16th September.

As part of the rewards (as if they weren't coming regardless!) for completing all three parts of the recent Global Challenge, three weeks of Ultra Bonuses have been unlocked, and Week 3 sees the arrival of Pokémon that fans first caught back when Pokémon Black and White launched on Nintendo DS.

Below is all the information released from the Pokémon GO Live webpage, including the chance to catch Unown forms from 10km eggs, regional exclusive Gen I Pokémon hatching from 7km eggs in Week 2 and the appearance of Jirachi via Special Research (use our guide to find out exactly how to nab the blighter):
