Raikou, Entei and Suicune have begun their world tour, and trainer prepare for EX-raids.
Get ready to find new and exciting Pokémon in Pokémon GO! Raikou, legendary electric-type Pokémon, Entei, legendary fire-type Pokémon, and Suicune, legendary water-type Pokémon, have finally come to the game. Now trainer from around the world will have the opportunity to fight and capture these three legendary Pokémon originating in the Johto region. Like before with Articuno, Bad, Moltres and Lugia, now you can fight with this trio in raids in gyms.
On August 31, 2017, Raikou, Entei and Suicune began to appear for the first time in several regions around the world. Raikou will appear in America, Entei in Europe and Africa, and Suicune in the Asia Pacific region. The trio will spend about four weeks in each region before continuing their trip to the next region. Find a new trio member in each region on September 30 and October 31, 2017. But remember that these legendary Pokémon will only be available for a limited time. When you arrive on November 30th, 2017, you will flee, so don’t stop going outside and fighting!
In addition to the debut of Raikou, Entei and Suicune, Pokémon GO will also make field tests of the new EX-raids (formerly called “Exclusive Raids”). These updated bouts will appear periodically in gyms around the world. Trainer who have successfully completed a raid in a gym where an EX-raid will be made will receive a special invitation to face the powerful leader of a raid. Soon, trainer in certain areas will begin to receive EX-raid passes to have the opportunity to experience this new feature and provide feedback to perfect this new system.
