After months of hype, Niantic has finally revealed that they are bringing in the much-awaited Legendary Pocket Monsters to Pokemon GO starting this July.
The game developer confirmed in a recent statement that everyone will soon have a shot at their very own Legendary Pokemon.
“As Trainers around the world go out and explore their neighborhoods in search of Pokémon and Raid Battles, they can keep an eye out for unique Legendary Eggs appearing at Gyms. If Trainers and their team are able to successfully defeat a Legendary Raid Boss, they’ll have the opportunity to catch a Legendary Pokémon of their own!” the statement read.
But aspiring Pokemon Masters won’t have it easy, since they first have to earn the right to own extremely powerful Pokemon like Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres. The opportunity will come on July 22, when thousands of trainers are expected to converge at the Pokémon GO Fest at Grant Park in Chicago.
“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,” Niantic explained.
