Imagine the day when there are no new creatures to add to the Pokémon GO universe. That day will probably never come because the source from which the game drinks is inexhaustible. Again Niantic will incorporate three new species; specifically, we will be able to capture the three legendary Pokémon of the fifth generation.
They are Reshiram, Zekrom and Kyurem. Teselia’s elite comes to Pokémon GO to be captured by all the trainers in the game. We are going to tell you how to do it since it has some requirements that you must meet and a limited time to do it.
What is special about legendary pokémon?
Legendary Pokémon are characterized by enormous power (greater than 570) and are also very difficult to capture due to their low capture ratio. Many of these tend to have some exclusive movement or ability, which makes them especially desired to be part of our team.
When will they be available to capture?
Above all, tranquillity. Starting today, they will be available, but with certain caveats. Niantic confirmed that we are on notice and do not catch the event by surprise. The three Pokémon will not be at the same time in the game, and it is that they will be arriving in a staggered way.
All of them will be achieved through 5-star raids in addition to remote raids, a concept that Niantic launched to avoid leaving home in search of new creatures, motivated by the COVID-19 quarantine. Of course, we must take into account that to access the latter, it is necessary to have a level of 20 trainer and 100 Pokécoins, which allows us to acquire the remote raid pass in the store and allows us to participate in activities without physically going to the location.
Reshiram: when, where and how to capture it
The first to appear will be Reshiram. This fire and dragon type Pokémon will have its staging from May 26, ending on June 16. During all those days it can be captured, yes, at certain times it will have a greater frequency of appearance. Those hours will be:
- Wednesday, May 27, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
- Wednesday, June 3, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
- Wednesday, June 10, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Those three days belong to special raids in which we will have a better chance of finding Reshiram, so we have to be vigilant.
Zekrom and Kyurem: dates and way to hunt these pokémon
Niantic has yet to confirm how all of the legendary Pokemon are captured, though all indications are that all three will go through the same capturing process: 5-star raids. We will update as more information becomes available.
Equipment, items, and poke balls needed to capture legendary Pokémon
Adding both Reshiram, Zekrom and Kyurem to the pokédex will not be easy. And it is that only the best prepared will be able to take advantage of the opportunity and the battle will not be easy. What does this mean? The most recurring players will know it, but to refresh the memory, we will say that it will make a powerful team fight and capture a pokémon of this calibre. To give you an idea, you are going to need some of the most powerful characters in the game on your team, such as those shown below:
Finally, the raids in which the legendary pokémon appear are identified because they are distinguished by carrying the symbol of a black egg on top of the gym. So if you do not have it yet, you can hurry to get it for when the time comes; otherwise, you will have no options.
