Monday, September 16 saw the third week of Pokemon GO's Ultra Bonus rewards begin, and we saw Niantic introduce a whole new generation of creatures to the game.
The Pokemon that you can catch in the wild are, currently, all first-form Pokemon (IE: not the evolved forms) and in a departure from the normal route of collecting candy to evolve the monsters, now you also have to get an Unova Stone, too.
Previously, when new Generations of Pokemon have been added, you've simply had to catch or hatch enough Pokemon to generate candy with which you can evolve them.
Sinnoh Pokemon required a special stone to evolve because they were evolutions of previous Gen Pokemon – but now Unova Pokemon require the Unova stone, even though in the base game there aren't any special conditions attached to changing the Pokemon's forms.

How to get an Unova Stone in Pokemon Go
If you're eager to get an Unova Stone, here's what you need to know.
Unova stones can only be earned through Research Breakthroughs at the time of writing (similar to Sinnoh Stones previously, which can still be earned through Trainer Battles).
To get a Research Breakthrough , players will need to complete seven Field Research challenges.
Collect these by spinning Pokestops and completing the criteria given to you in challenges when you spin the stops. You can hold up to three research challenges at a time, and you'll need to complete at least one per day over seven days in order to earn a Research Breakthrough.
