Three Legendary Pokemon are about to enter the world of Pokemon Go. Raikou, Entei, and Suicune will be available for a limited time. Also, EX Raid Battle field-test will soon be available in select regions around the world.

It has been a minute since any news about Pokemon Go appeared on our page. Now, three Legendary Pokemon from the Johto region: Raikou, Entei, and Suicune, are coming to the world of Pokemon Go. Trainers will be able to discover, battle, and catch the three Legendary Pokemon in Raid Battles located at Gyms around the world. In addition to this, the newly revealed EX Raid Battle feature will begin a field-test program in select areas before becoming available to Trainers worldwide.

Raikou, Entei, and Suicune will be traveling across the world over the next several months, each spending up to a month in each region.  Here's the schedule:

From August 31 to September 30:

  • Raikou, an Electric-type Legendary Pokemon, can be battled throughout the Americas.
  • Entei, a Fire-type Legendary Pokemon, can be battled throughout Europe and Africa.
  • Suicune, a Water-type Legendary Pokemon, can be battled throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

On September 30, all three Pokemon will move to a different location and be available for Trainers to battle with other Trainers until October 31. Finally, all three will make their final stop in the last remaining location on October 31. Like the Legendary Pokemon Articuno, Moltres, Zapdos, and Lugia before them, Raikou, Entei, and Suicune will be available for a limited time.

In addition, the EX Raid Battle field-test will soon be available in select regions around the world in an effort to fine-tune the new system with Pokemon Go’s dedicated community of global Trainers. Similar to existing Raid Battles, EX Raid Battles will periodically appear at Gyms around the world.

Trainers who have successfully completed a Raid Battle at the Gym where the EX Raid Battle is taking place will be invited to battle a powerful Raid Boss. Beginning soon, Trainers in select areas will begin to receive an EX Raid Pass for an opportunity to experience the new feature and provide feedback.
