Niantic is truly making the fans happy because Legendary Pokemon are soon coming to Pokemon Go. You can encounter them as soon as this weekend!
Niantic announced all of the details on the official website. They said: “If Trainers everywhere catch enough Pokémon during Pokémon GO Fest on July 22, 2017, the debut Legendary Pokémon will be unveiled! Then, Pokémon GO Fest attendees in Grant Park will be able to encounter this Legendary Pokémon in an epic Raid Battle. If they defeat it, the Pokémon will appear at Gyms across the globe beginning July 23”
Niantic says apart from this event, Legendary Pokemon will continue to appear in the game throughout the year. They won’t appear all of the time because that means they won’t be “rare”.
If you stopped playing the game, now is the best time to play it again. Your contribution could help others get a Legendary Pokemon too so go out and catch them all!
