This is it, everyone. This is the big one! After millions of Pokémon GO players around the world combined to meet the goals of Professor Willow’s Global Research Challenge, Niantic has just announced several big events on the way to the sensational mobile game. Starting in just a few days, the original Legendary trio from Kanto will be available in raids, but that’s just the appetizer before the main course.
Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres will appear in raid battles from September 13th through the 20th, and you may even encounter a shiny version! Once the 20th rolls around, though, the powerful birds will fly off, replaced by the intensely powerful Mewtwo. That’s right, for the first time ever Mewtwo is coming to normal raid battles! Mewtwo will be available all the way up until October 23rd, so you’ll have plenty of chances to catch one.
Finally, Niantic also announced that Farfetch’d, Kangaskhan, Mr. Mime, and Tauros are all coming to the game as egg Pokémon. They’ll be rolled out throughout September, and they will require 7 kilometers of walking to hatch.
