The Pokémon GO fever has died down, but that hasn’t stopped Niantic, the developer of the game, to continue churning out critical updates. Now, if you’re still playing the game and wondering when more legendary Pokémon will enter the fray, well, you’re in luck.
Here’s the thing, there are three new legendary creatures, and each is spread across the world. To get them, you’ll have to travel, so prepare your airline tickets in a bid to catch them all. Bear in mind, neither Niantic or Nintendo will pay for your expenses.
Let’s talk about these Pokémon, then
First up we have Raikou, a legendary electric creature that is located in the Americas. It resembles a sabretooth tiger and will destroy any Water-type or lower ranked Pokémon with ease.
Looking to boost your fire line up? Worry not because Entei is here to calm your nerves. It’s another legendary creature, and if you want it, get ready to travel to either Europe or Africa.
Finally, we have Suicune, which is a legendary water type Pokémon that can only be found in the Asia-Pacific region. It’s the perfect beast to take down a fire-type without much hassle.
Legends traveling the world
Good news for those who are not interested or lack the cash to travel the globe. Niantic made it clear that these legendary Pokémon will travel the world, which means, they won’t stay in one region forever. The company did not give a time frame as to when they’ll change location, but chance are it will be a long wait.
At the end of the day, everyone will get the chance to capture all these legendary creatures, just have a little bit of patience.
EX Raid Battle field-testing
Niantic is ready to kick start field testing of an EX Raid Battle feature very soon. The testing will commence at selected gyms, but the company did not specify which ones as of yet.
“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,” according to Niantic.
To get in on the EX Raid Battle, you must first be invited. We can’t be certain on what basis players will get an invitation, but for those who are huge fans of the game, luck is going to play a huge role here.
All in all, it’s clear Pokémon GO is still a thing due to the regular updates. We might no longer see hundreds of people walking around neighborhoods late at night trying to capture their favorite creature, which is a good thing if you ask us.
