Niantic has announced that from February 23rd, 2018 until March 5th, 2018, players of Pokémon GO will have the chance to catch the Legendary Pokémon Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza in Raid Battles.

Kyogre and Groudon Join Rayquaza for a Legendary Week of Raid Battles!

Trainers, Now is the time to test your strength! Legendary Pokémon Kyogre and Groudon return to Raid Battles alongside Rayquaza for a limited time. Now is an excellent chance to finally catch all three ancient Legendary Pokémon originally discovered in the Hoenn region!

Kyogre, Groudon, and Rayquaza each have their own strengths and weaknesses, so challenging all three will take skill! Power up your strongest Pokémon, grab your friends, and head to nearby Gyms for a chance to battle and catch them from February 23 until March 5.

We’re in for some legendary battles, and the overall result will be exciting! If Rayquaza is defeated more than Kyogre and Groudon combined, Pokémon that typically prefer windy weather (for example, Bagon) are more likely to hatch from Eggs from March 5 to March 16. If not, Pokémon that prefer sunny or rainy weather (like Trapinch or Lotad) are more likely to hatch.

These battles will be tough, so we have new special boxes debuting on February 24, containing Raid Passes to help you prepare. Visit the in-game store to find out more.

Did you know Pokémon is celebrating a ‘legendary’ year in 2018? You can learn about more about these and other Legendary Pokémon at Pokemon.com/Legendary.

Don’t miss this opportunity to add these Legendary Pokémon to your team. Stay safe, and happy exploring!

Niantic announced that visitors to the Pokémon GO Stadium event in Yokohama, Japan for the Pikachu Outbreak 2017 were able to battle against the Legendary Pokémon Mewtwo. The new exclusive Raid Battle feature will also become available to players around the world in the near future.

Mewtwo Coming to Exclusive Raid Battles Soon!

Trainers, Earlier today, Trainers battled against the Legendary Pokémon Mewtwo at the Pokémon GO Stadium event in Yokohama, Japan. Thousands of Trainers in attendance were able to successfully catch Mewtwo and add it to their Pokédexes. In the coming weeks, you, too, will have the opportunity to battle and catch Mewtwo with the new Exclusive Raid Battle feature.

Exclusive Raid Battles are similar to existing Raid Battles, with a few notable differences. Exclusive raids will periodically appear at Gyms around the world; however, unlike existing raids, Trainers will be invited to join an Exclusive Raid Battle. To receive an invitation to participate in an Exclusive Raid Battle, Trainers must have successfully completed a raid recently, by defeating the Raid Boss, at the Gym where the Exclusive Raid Battle will be taking place. The invitations will include advance warning of when the Exclusive Raid will take place, giving them ample time to coordinate with other Trainers before taking on the powerful Raid Boss.

Mewtwo is the first Pokémon that Trainers will be able to face in Exclusive Raid Battles, but other powerful Pokémon may also start to hatch from the Raid Eggs found at Exclusive Raid Battles over the next several weeks. Make sure you’re prepared to battle Mewtwo by powering up your Pokémon and battling in raids at Gyms near you!

The official Pokémon website has revealed Hoopa Unbound and has posted a video on YouTube to showcase it. High quality artwork from the press release has been added to our Imageboard thread.

Hoopa Unbound Revealed for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Trailer


Press Release

Hoopa is a Mythical Pokémon that you cannot meet through ordinary gameplay in the world of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. It is the 720th Pokémon to be added to the Pokédex, and it would appear that it can change form.

Hoopa Unbound is the new and truest form of Hoopa, which until now has had its power sealed away. The rings it carries have the power to bend dimensions and are said to allow it to seize anything in the world.

After its transformation, Hoopa Unbound is far larger than it was in its previous appearance. It is easy to recognize by its six huge arms, and it is carrying a greater number of its signature dimension-bending rings.

Hoopa Unbound stats:
· Category: Djinn Pokémon
· Type: Psychic/Dark
· Height: 21′ 04″ [6.5 m]
· Weight: 1,080.3 lbs. [490.0 kg]
· Ability: Magician

How does Hoopa regain its true form? As with the secret of meeting Hoopa itself, this mystery has yet to be solved…

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire launched in November 2014. Pokémon fans can collect, battle and trade Pokémon as they travel throughout the rich natural beauty of the Hoenn region.
