Pokemon Go‘s Extraordinary Raid Week event may be coming to an end, but Niantic is giving players another incentive to participate in Raid Battles. Over the next few weeks, the developer is bringing three Legendary Pokemon back to the game, beginning with the Psychic-type Cresselia.
From now until June 18, the Lunar Pokemon will appear around the world again in five-star Raids. Not only is this a good opportunity to capture one if you missed it the first time it was available last December, you’ll also have a chance of encountering its Shiny form. Cresselia is a pure Psychic-type, so you’ll want to bring along Dark, Bug, and Ghost Pokemon like Tyranitar, Scizor, and Giratina to battle it.
Following Cresselia’s departure, the Legendary Water Pokemon Kyogre will return to five-star Raids from June 18 to June 27. After that, you’ll have another chance to capture its counterpart, Groudon, which will appear from June 27 to July 10. As is the case with Cresselia, you’ll also have a chance of encountering Shiny versions of Kyogre and Groudon when they return to Raids. You can read more details on the Pokemon Go website.
Beyond the returning Legendaries, Pokemon Go players have the game’s next Community Day to look forward to soon. Next month’s event will take place on Saturday, June 8, and the featured Pokemon this time will be Slakoth. If you manage to evolve one into its final form, Slaking, by the end of the Community Day, it’ll learn an event-exclusive move. As an added bonus, Pokemon Eggs will hatch at a quarter of their normal distance during the Community Day.
In other Pokemon Go news, Niantic recently rolled out a new wave of Gen 4 Pokemon. Gible, Hippopotas, Cherubi, and several other Pokemon originally from the Diamond and Pearl versions can now be found in the mobile game. The developer has also added several new types of Lure Modules that let you evolve Eevee into Glaceon and Leafeon.
