Pokemon Go developer Niantic announced that starting today, August 31, Legendary Pokemon Raikou, Entei, and Suicune will be appearing in Pokemon Go. The trio of Legendary Beasts first appeared in Pokemon Gold and Silver, wandering around the Johto region. Likewise, they'll be traveling the world for the next three months. Today, you can find them here:
- 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 Legendary Pokemon will move to a different location. They'll remain available there until October 31, when they'll move to the final location in the rotation. Do you best to catch these limited Pokemon!
Niantic is also touting the new EX Raid Battles feature, previously-known as the Exclusive Raid Battle. EX Raid Battles will start field-testing at select Gyms prior to its global launch, with the first EX Raid Passess begin available soon.
"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," said Niantic. "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."
Invited players will have the chance to test out the system starting on September 6.
