It sounds like big news is on the horizon for Pokémon GO fans. The Webby Awards were hosted just a few days ago, and GO had the honor of winning Best Mobile Game. While receiving the award, Niantic’s Global Marketing Product Lead Archit Bhargava took the opportunity to give a quick, five-word acceptance speech, and his chosen words immediately grabbed fans’ attention: “This summer will be legendary.”

Bhargava had reason to be excited, as
Pokémon GO won five Webby Awards in total, including the “People’s Voice Award for Best Mobile Game,” and he shared that excitement in his acceptance speech by arousing speculation for legendary Pokémon in the game. No other news has yet surfaced regarding how the legendary creatures might be worked into the game, but Pokémon fans are still thrilled by his brief words. And for good reason, too—this summer could very well have the battle and capture of Mewtwo, the legendary birds, or more waiting on the horizon for dedicated players of the mobile game.

Hey all! I've been a gamer since I was three. I'm one of those people with gaming so ingrained in them that watching my father play Super Mario 64 is actually my first memory I can recall. I love writing too! I'm writing an original fantasy series that takes place in another universe; it may take some inspiration from some of my favorite franchises. I've been a journalist for a few years, have worked on local and national teams, and have garnered experience assigning stories, editing, writing, interviewing, hosting a television series, running a YouTube channel, and doing other stuff that's more fun to mention in conversation. Bios can drag on. Anyway, I'm super stoked to be a part of the Gamnesia team! Thanks for having me!
