It’s actually happening: The legendary dogs Raikou, Entei, and Suicune are coming to Pokemon GO today! The official Pokemon GO Twitter & Facebook accounts confirmed the details in posts made only a few minutes ago.
The official announcement reads: “Starting August 31, the Legendary Pokémon Raikou, Entei, and Suicune will begin appearing in Pokémon GO. Trainers worldwide can look forward to battling these Pokémon together with friends in Raid Battles for the chance to catch the trio of Legendary Pokémon originally from the Johto region.”
The announcement continues with: “Raikou, Entei, and Suicune will be traveling the world throughout the coming months. From August 31 to September 30, you can find these Legendary Pokémon in the following areas of the world:”
- Raikou, an Electric-type Legendary Pokémon, can be battled throughout the Americas.
- Entei, a Fire-type Legendary Pokémon, can be battled throughout Europe and Africa.
- Suicune, a Water-type Legendary Pokémon, can be battled throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
Just like in the main series games, it appears that this legendary trio will roam the earth, and rotate every month or so. The announcement makes it clear that after the first rotation, each of the legendary dogs will appear at each of the other continents/regions, until the end of November.
The announcement concludes with this: “On September 30, all three of these Legendary Pokémon will move to a different location and will be available for Trainers to battle with friends until October 31.”
“They will make their final stop in the last remaining location on October 31. Raikou, Entei, and Suicune will be available for this limited time period, so make sure to battle against them when they arrive at Gyms near you!”
