Niantic has been slowly releasing Gen 3 Pokemon and its time for some new adventures as you encounter even more Pokemon originally discovered in the Hoenn region on February 9! Alongside several Flying- and Dragon-type Pokemon appearing in Pokemon GO for the first time, the Legendary Pokemon Rayquaza will descend from the ozone layer and become available in Raid Battles for a limited time.
In celebration, Pokemon originally discovered in the Hoenn region will take over wild encounters until February 13. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to catch powerful Pokemon such as Salamence, Altaria, Metagross, and more!
The Legendary Pokemon Rayquaza will be appearing in Raid Battles in Gyms near you until March 16. You’ll also have a chance to battle the Legendary Water-type Pokemon Kyogre before it swims away on February 14. Will you be the first to catch all three ancient Legendary Pokemon originally discovered in the Hoenn region?
Even more, surprises await nearby! In addition to these Pokemon being available in the wild, you might see some different Pokemon in Raid Battles at your nearby Gym, and from hatched Eggs.
With all of these Pokemon to catch and power up, it’s important to stock up on supplies. Starting February 9, new special boxes–which include Raid Passes, Incubators, and Star Pieces–will be available in the in-game store until February 23. In addition, Lure Modules will remain activated for six hours until February 23! These items will be perfect aids in your Pokémon GO adventure.
Get out there and make progress on completing your Pokedex!
