Legendary Pokémon Raikou, Entei, and Suicune have arrived in Pokémon Go
Thought you could take a break from the weekend Pokémon Go raiding fun? Well, think again!
With the Legendary Birds now flying the coop, Niantic has wasted no time in getting to the next set of legendary Pokémon, the Johto Legendary dogs! Raikou, Entei, and Suicune will start appearing on August 31st, seeing that it is already September in Australia they should just arrive in time for the weekend.
The dogs like their appearance in Pokémon Gold and Silver will move around too with each one a region exclusive for a month. Here’s the update from Niantic;
From August 31 to September 30, you can find these Legendary Pokémon in the following areas of the world:
Raikou, an Electric-type Legendary Pokémon, can be battled throughout the Americas.
Entei, a Fire-type Legendary Pokémon, can be battled throughout Europe and Africa.
Suicune, a Water-type Legendary Pokémon, can be battled throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
On September 30, all three of these Legendary Pokémon will move to a different location and will be available for Trainers to battle with friends until October 31. They will make their final stop in the last remaining location on October 31. Raikou, Entei, and Suicune will be available for this limited time period, so make sure to battle against them when they arrive at Gyms near you!
While these Legendary Pokémon are traveling the world, we’ll also begin an EX Raid Battle (formerly Exclusive Raid Battle) field-testing phase at select Gyms before the feature is made available globally. We have collected some valuable early feedback on the new EX Raid Battle feature and will look to further test and hone the experience through the feedback of the dedicated global Trainer community. During the field test, we’ll be making periodic adjustments to EX Raid eligibility requirements, frequency, times, locations, and durations with the goal of making the EX Raid Battle feature engaging, rewarding, and most importantly, fun for Trainers who regularly participate in Raid Battles.
The first EX Raid Passes will be sent out soon, and those invited will have an opportunity to try out the new system as early as September 6. Stay tuned for more updates as we launch the EX Raid Battle field test to more Gyms in the weeks ahead. We look forward to reading all your constructive feedback on our social media channels and encourage you to continue share your thoughts throughout the EX Raid Battle field test!
Well looks like it’s another weekend in the rain.
