Pokémon GO Adds Entei, Raikou, And Suicune

Recommended Videos


More Johto creatures are joining Pokémon GO. Niantic has announced the arrival of the three Legendary Beasts. Beginning today, Entei, Suicune, and Raikou have begun their run around the world. Each one is available in a different region until September 30, 2017.


This is due to the Legendary Beasts’ reputation for always being on the run in the Pokémon games. So in Pokémon GO, Entei begins in Africa and Europe, Raikou starts off in the Americas, and people in Asia will see Suicune. On September 30, 2017, their locations will shift. Then, on October 31, 2017, they will move again. This means all three regions will eventually get all three Legendary Beasts.


In addition to the Legendary Beasts, Pokémon GO’s EX Raid Battles will begin field testing. Passes will be sent out soon and the feature could begin appearing September 6, 2017.


Pokémon GO is available for Android and Apple iOS devices.
