The event will bring Mewtwo, Zapdos, Articuno, Moltres, and more.
As part of Professor Willow’s Global Research Challenge, players had a chance to encounter various legendary Pokemon in Pokemon Go not too long ago. This challenge consisted of various events which occurred in the past few months, including the Dortmund Safari Zone event, Pokemon GO Fest, and the Yokosuka Safari Zone event. To celebrate these events, it was announced in an official blog post there will be a new Ultra Bonus Event which will give players a chance to catch even more new Legendary Pokemon.
From September 13 onward, players will have a chance to encounter three Legendary Pokemon from the Kanto region – Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres – until September 20. Furthermore, on September 20, Mewtwo will be coming to Raid battles for the first time ever and will be available until October 23.
It’s not all about the Legendaries, though. Pokemon hailing from the Kanto region will also show up more frequently in Raid battles, and will also appear more often out in the world until September 30. Additionally, Kangaskhan, Mr. Mime, Farfetch’d, and Tauros will be available in 7 km eggs until the end of September.
Events and constant updates to the game have resulted in Pokemon GO continuing to perform increasingly well over the last few weeks and months. Last week, we reported that the game had now crossed over $2.5 million in revenue every day. Read more on that here.
