‘Pokemon GO’ to get generation 5 legendaries

Pokemon GO sees Terrakion in the game once again, but it is not the only Legendary Pokemon that is going to make their way in this augmented reality mobile title later this month and this year.

Like previously, Terrakion’s presence in the game is only going to be temporary. With it scheduled to suddenly leave raids on May 26, 2020.

A Legendary Dragon Pokemon

Pokemon Black’s legendary monster, Reshiram, is also making an appearance to the game later next week. It will appear through five-star raids until June 16, 2020.

Players who are wanting to encounter Reshiram at a likely rate should take note of the following dates. These are scheduled Raid Hour events specially made for Reshiram.

  • May 27, 2020: 6-7 PM local time
  • June 3, 2020: 6-7 PM local time
  • June 10, 2020: 6-7 PM local time

Latecomers or those who had missed the chance of capturing Terrakion previously should take advantage of the ongoing event when possible.

While the dates are still yet to be determined, Kyurem and Zekrom are also slated for a show-up as well. If Niantic is following a certain pattern, we can surmise that any of these two legendaries will make a quick surface soon after Reshiram expires.

Remote Raids

Given the precarious circumstances of the coronavirus pandemic, Niantic has recently launched the Remote Raid Pass feature. True to its name, it allows players to actively participate in raids even when not moving around and about outdoors.

Players who are likely not going to encounter the legendary Pokemon anywhere in their homes should definitely consider a Remote Raid Pass.

Essentially a part of Pokemon GO’s microtransaction, eager players may be able to purchase the pass with the app.

However, it is worth noting that the item is currently inaccessible for players at levels 4 and below. It means that players who are completely new to the game will have to spend some time playing the game first to reach a required level.

How to Get a Remote Raid Pass

To avail of the Remote Raid Pass, the player must do the following:

  • Run the Pokemon GO app
  • Tap the Pokemon Ball icon
  • Select Shop
  • Scroll down to the Items section
  • Choose the Remote Raid Pass

Do note that each Remote Raid Pass costs 100 Pokecoins, the game’s unique in-game currency. Furthermore, Remote Raid Passes are limited only to 3 pieces at any time in the player’s Item Bag.
