The legendary beast trio of the Johto region – Raikou, Entei and Suicune – all entered Pokemon Go last month. Raikou was available in the Americas, Entei in Europe and Africa while Suicune was available in the Asia-Pacific region.
Today, the legendary trio are switching locations which give another set of players a new opportunity to catch these legendary Pokemon.
The Pokemon Go Twitter page has been teasing about the rotation and now as the rotation has taken place: Entei can be found in the Americas, Suicune in Europe and Africa while Raikou can be found in the Asia/Pacific regions. It doesn’t look like there is official confirmation of Raikou’s location right now but it’s the only place that he could be.
They are once again for a limited time so you’ll have only about a month to catch the new legendary.
This rotation takes place during the Equinox event, which has already started and will run for a few more days. The event gives players double Stardust drops for catching Pokemon and hatching eggs. Special 2 km eggs are available at PokeStops and Gyms that have a chance to hatch into Chansey, Mareep, Larvitar, and more. We’ve compiled a list of all the Pokemon players have hatched from the eggs if you want to learn more.
With October and Halloween rapidly approaching, we’re probably looking at another Halloween-themed event coming as well. Last year’s event made Ghastly, Haunter, and Gengar more common and reportedly we’re going to see Misdreavus and Dark Pokemon become more common. Generation 2 introduced the Dark-type Pokemon which weren’t available while the game this had Generation 1 Pokemon.
