Pokemon GO APK Update News reveals MAJOR Go Plus and Raid CHANGES ahead of Mewtwo release

Niantic and The Pokemon Company have announced that Legendary Pokemon Raikou, Entei, and Suicune are coming to Pokemon Go starting today. Oddly they're being rolled out "across the world" over the "next several months", and will spend a month in each region - they've found a way to keep raids relevant for longer, it seems.

According to the game's official website, the three legendary monsters will be unleashed in certain parts of the world on August 31. On September 30, they'll swap through October 31, and the process is repeated.

Where and how to catch Raikou?

Raikou, an electric-type, can be battled and captured throughout the Americas.

During the field test, we'll be making periodic adjustments to EX Raid eligibility requirements, frequency, times, locations, and durations with the goal of making the EX Raid Battle feature engaging, rewarding, and most importantly, fun for Trainers who regularly participate in Raid Battles.

Fire-type Entei will be in Europe and Africa until September 30.

Likewise and perhaps the biggest change is a fix for the bug that prevented Trainers from catching raid bosses whilst using the last Premier Ball.

Where and how to find Suicune? Meanwhile, the Water-type Suicune is available for players in the Asia region.

Developer Niantic is also testing the new Exclusive Raid Battle system it debuted in Japan earlier this month.

The last set of Legendaries was handled a bit differently: the same legendary was available worldwide, but only for a week at a time (until the last few days, at which point they were all briefly available simultaneously). They should also make sure that their Pokemon are strong enough for the event, since these monsters will require battle before being caught.
