Entei, Suicune, Raikou, and EX Raids Coming to ‘Pokemon GO!’

Entei, Suicune, and Raikou will be available in Pokemon GO from August 31st to October 31st!

From August 31st until September 30th, Raikou can be caught in the Americas, Entei in Europe and Africa, and Suicune in Asian countries. Afterwards, the Pokemon will rotate locations until the end of October.

Also starting September 6th, the Pokemon GO developers will begin inviting players to try out their new “EX Battle Raid” feature before rolling it out globally. The feature allows players to battle rare Pokemon like Mewtwo.

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

    Omg... I'm so stoked. I'm sad we don't get Entei first, though. But at least we're getting all of the dogs!
     
  2. The game became more fun for me ever since raids were released. I'm excited to get my hands on the Legendary Beasts! Too bad I never caught Zapdos though. :(

    I finally spotted one of these at a Gym Raid. 42000CP

    Duuuuude. With how much it has fallen off where I live, I'll never defeat one by myself ;_;
