It’s happening: Legendary Pokémon are finally headed to Pokémon Go in just a few short days.
Niantic announced today that the first legendary Pokémon raid will take place during Pokèmon Go Fest in Chicago on Saturday. Trainers will gather to join forces and unlock in-game bonuses for the entire Pokémon Go community. The first legendary Pokémon will only show its face if enough Pokémon are caught during the Pokémon Go Fest challenge window. If the trainers in Chicago are successful in taking down whatever legendary rears its head, that Pokémon will start spawning in gyms around the world starting Sunday.
Players will need to work together to take down the rare creatures, which will spawn in legendary eggs at gyms. The powerful pocket monsters will not be easy to defeat, but if they are a mighty new fighter will be added to your lineup. While legendary Pokémon will be of great assistance in gym battles and when taking down tough raid bosses, the loyal creatures will not leave their trainer’s side. So no legendaries can be left to defend gyms.
This exciting update comes just in time for the popular mobile game to try for a resurgence this summer—assuming that those gathered in Chicago manage to come out on top.
