Legendary Pokemon Raikou, Entei, and Suicune and an EX Raid Battle Field Test will be coming to Pokemon GO soon. There’s plenty of thing announced today for the popular mobile title so take a read below Starting August 31, the Legendary Pokemon Raikou, Entei, and Suicune will begin appearing in Pokemon GO. Trainers worldwide can look forward to battling these Pokemon together with friends in Raid Battles for the chance to catch the trio of Legendary Pokemon originally from the Johto region. Raikou, Entei, and Suicune will be traveling the world throughout the coming months. From August 31 to September 30, you can find these Legendary Pokemon in the following areas of the world:
- Raikou, an Electric-type Legendary Pokemon, can be battled throughout the Americas.
- Entei, a Fire-type Legendary Pokemon, can be battled throughout Europe and Africa.
- Suicune, a Water-type Legendary Pokemon, can be battled throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
On September 30, all 3 of these Legendary Pokemon 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 Pokemon 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.
