Pokemon Go is Bringing Back one of its Rarest Legendaries for a Limited Time

Pokemon Go is Bringing Back one of its Rarest Legendaries for a Limited Time

The age of Gold and Silver is upon us again.

Legendary Pokémon Lugia is swooping back down to Pokémon GO. From tomorrow (March 16) through April 2, the Psychic / Flying type will show up in Raid battles. According to Niantic's notice about Lugia's return, Rayquaza will go away for a little while (the ozone layer needs him) starting tomorrow evening.

Lugia's already a tough cookie to crunch up in Pokémon GO, but he's bringing a new move for his visit: Sky Attack. You're going to need a lot of friends to bring the beast down, so good luck. Lugia's inherent difficultly makes him a popular raid battle, but there's another reason he might be returning: He stars in a new Pokémon movie arriving in Japan in July.

Lifehack: If you have giant hands, you can fly.

Or maybe he doesn't need a reason to return. He's Lugia. He goes where the wind takes him. Plus, Lugia was Pokémon GO's first Legendary, and there's rarely a bad time for nostalgia. What counts is We can help you take down Lugia in a raid, and our extensive tips, tricks, hints, and guides for Pokémon GO will help you be the very best.
