Pokemon Go Bringing Lugia Back Tomorrow

Pokemon Go Bringing Lugia Back Tomorrow nmprofetimg 1496

Cobalion has once again left Pokemon Go, but another Legendary Pokemon is set to return to the game very soon. Lugia, the cover monster from Pokemon Silver, will reappear in Raid Battles for a limited time starting tomorrow, March 24, and this time around, it’ll know a special move.

You’ll be able to encounter Lugia in five-star Raids until 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET on March 31–the same time that Landorus is set to make its debut in Pokemon Go. Like Cobalion before it, Lugia knows a special event-exclusive move this time around: Aeroblast. Not only that, but you have a chance of encountering a Shiny Lugia as well.

If you can’t make it out to Raids, Niantic is offering another way to catch Lugia. The Legendary Pokemon will also be available as a Go Battle League reward encounter until March 31. You can read more details on the official Pokemon Go website.

As previously mentioned, immediately following Lugia’s departure, Landorus–the third and final member of the Forces of Nature trio–will make its debut in Pokemon Go. Landorus will be available until April 24. As with Lugia and Cobalion, you’ll be able to encounter the Legendary in Raids or as a Go Battle League reward.

In the meantime, the Mythical Pokemon Genesect is also still available in the game. You can catch the powerful Bug/Steel Pokemon through a Special Research story called A Drive to Investigate, which is underway until March 26. However, you need to purchase a virtual ticket to participate in the event. Genesect will also appear in EX Raids starting in April.
