Today developer Niantic announced that legendary Pokémon Raikou, Entei, and Suicune will all be making there way to its wildly successful mobile game Pokémon GO. 

Just like all the other legendary Pokémon, they will only be available for a limited time, and they can only be found in certain regions depending on the time. Players will be able to start catching these rare beasts on August 31st, 2017. Raikou will only be available in the Americas, Entei will only be available in Europe and Africa, and Suicune will only be available in Asia. If you’re saddened by the fact that one of them isn’t available in your region, don’t worry; on September 30th, 2017, each of them will move to another location. They will move again for the final time on October 31st, 2017.

In addition to the announcement of the new monsters, it was also revealed that the company will be testing out a new and improved version of the Exclusive Raid Battles, which will now be called EX Raid Battles. Invites to test these out should be sent to select players on September 6th, 2017.

Earlier this month it was announced that fan-favorite Mewtwo would be available to battle, after previously only being available in Asian territories.

Pokémon GO was originally released on July 6th, 2016, and is available on iOS and Android devices.
