Pokémon Go's newest legendaries are traveling around the world

The legendary beasts have arrived

Niantic is continuing its release of special pokémon in Pokémon Go with Raikou, Entei, and Suicune — also known as the three “legendary beasts.” The limited-time trio will rotate around the world, staying in their respective regions for up to a month before moving on.

Beginning today through September 30th, players can find electric-type Raikou throughout the Americas; fire-type Entei around Europe and Africa; and water-type Suicune in the Asia-Pacific region. The trio will move to swap locations once again from September 30th to October 31st before rotating for a final time at the end of October.

Niantic introduced legendary pokémon to the game in July as part of its ill-fated festival, followed by Mewtwo.

The developer also announced that players in “select regions” will get to field test the game’s new EX Raid Battles. Like Raid Battles, these pop up periodically at gyms and allow players to tackle a powerful boss.
