Niantic and the Pokémon company have announced that the first appearance of the Legendary Pokémon in Pokémon GO could take place this weekend at Pokémon GO Fest. This would be the first opportunity for trainers to discover, battle, and potentially catch the Legendary Pokémon.
In order to make the Legendary Pokémon appear, it will require teamwork not just from trainers at the festival in Chicago, but also from trainers around the world. Players at the event must catch enough Pokémon and unlock bonuses, while players from around world work to keep those bonuses active. If this is done long enough, the Legendary Pokémon will then appear in Chicago, giving trainers to participate in the first Legendary Pokémon Raid Battle. This will not only give trainers the opportunity to catch them, but if defeated, the Legendary Pokémon will start appearing in Raid Battles across the globe. Check out the trailer for the Legendary Pokémon Raid Battles below:
