New Legendary Pokémon Descends in Pokémon GO

Press Release recent showcase

Niantic, Inc. and The Pokémon Company International have released Pokémon GO‘s newest Legendary Pokémon: the Hoenn region’s Rayquaza, which originally appeared in Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire.

From February 9 until March 16, Trainers will be able to discover and catch the Sky High Pokémon in Raid Battles around the world. The Pokémon brand is celebrating the year of Legendary Pokémon in 2018 and the introduction of Rayquaza to Pokémon GO is a new addition to the many ways fans can engage with these powerful Pokémon.

Rayquaza will be joined by several Dragon- and Flying-type Pokémon originally from the Hoenn region, that will also be making their first appearance in Pokémon GO starting Friday. In celebration of over 100 Hoenn region Pokémon becoming available in the game, every Pokémon encountered in the wild from now until February 13 will be one originally discovered in the Hoenn region. February 14 marks the departure of the Legendary Water-type Pokémon Kyogre from Raid Battles.

To help Trainers fill out their growing Pokédexes, new special boxes containing Raid Passes, Incubators, and Star Pieces will be available in the in-game store until February 23. Lure Modules will continue to have an extended six-hour duration until February 23.
