The first Legendary Pokémon set to appear this weekend in Pokémon Go
Niantic has announced the first Legendary Pokémon in Pokémon Go are set to appear possibly as soon as this weekend.
They’re not just going to appear in the world randomly and players at the Pokémon GO Fest in the US are going to have to ‘unlock’ it for the rest of the world. Here’s how it’s going to go down;
‘On July 22, thousands of Trainers in Grant Park for Pokémon GO Fest and the millions of others around the world will be working together to unlock in-game bonuses for the entire Pokémon GO community. If they manage to catch enough Pokémon during the Pokémon GO Fest Challenge Windows, the first Legendary Pokémon will be revealed in Grant Park. If the Trainers in Chicago succeed in defeating the Legendary Pokémon, that Pokémon will start appearing in Raid Battles around the world, after Pokémon GO Fest.’’
When and if a Legendary Pokémon appears at a Gym Raid, these insanely powered Pokémon will yours if you can take it down. Legendary Pokémon will not be able to be placed a gym after they are caught.
