The Pokemon Company & Niantic announced a massive update will soon be dropping for the mobile hit game Pokemon GO. Now, to obtain these upcoming rare monsters, players will need to participate in Raids—this means a Legendary Pokemon will appear at a certain spot in your area/city and it’ll be up to you and other players to defeat it together, once defeated the Pokemon will be given to everyone who joined the battle as a gift.
It’s still very unclear how and when these rare monsters will appear. Niantic have said that if the community is able to catch normal Pokemon in their area during PokemonGO Challenges Fest Windows, then a Legendary Pokemon would appear at Grant Park in Chicago during Pokemon GO Fest on July 22nd (tomorrow). It’s said that if these players are to succeed in the raid then Legendary Pokemon will begin to appear all across the globe—pretty exciting stuff.
In the new trailer, we’re shown some of the new Legendary Pokemon that’ll be available in the raids, the video featured; Zapdos, Lugia, Ho-Oh, Articuno, Moltres, and Mewtwo. Check it out down below:
Pokémon GO is available to download on iOS and Android devices.
