Pokémon GO Will See Suicine, Entei & Raikou As Raid Bosses


Pokemon GO Hunters around the world, get ready for the next round of Legendaries as Suicine, Entei & Raikou will be making appearances as Raid bosses. Starting from today, These 3 Pokémon will be rotating around the globe. Raikou will be available in the Americas, Entei will be making its home in Europe & Africa and Suicine will be present in the Asia-Pacific region. They will stay in each region until September 30th where they will then change region until October 31st, where they will make the final move to the last region they have yet to visit.

Here is the official Announcement from Niantic:

Over the last several weeks, we’ve heard so many incredible stories of Trainers teaming up together around the world to catch Pokémon GO’s first Legendary Pokémon. We’re excited to keep the legendary adventures going!

Starting August 31, the Legendary Pokémon Raikou, Entei, and Suicune will begin appearing in Pokémon GO. Trainers worldwide can look forward to battling these Pokémon together with friends in Raid Battles for the chance to catch the trio of Legendary Pokémon originally from the Johto region. Raikou, Entei, and Suicune will be traveling the world throughout the coming months. From August 31 to September 30, you can find these Legendary Pokémon in the following areas of the world:

Raikou, an Electric-type Legendary Pokémon, can be battled throughout the Americas.
Entei, a Fire-type Legendary Pokémon, can be battled throughout Europe and Africa.
Suicune, a Water-type Legendary Pokémon, can be battled throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

On September 30, all three of these Legendary Pokémon will move to a different location and will be available for Trainers to battle with friends until October 31. They will make their final stop in the last remaining location on October 31. Raikou, Entei, and Suicune will be available for this limited time period, so make sure to battle against them when they arrive at Gyms near you!

While these Legendary Pokémon are traveling the world, we’ll also begin an EX Raid Battle (formerly Exclusive Raid Battle) field-testing phase at select Gyms before the feature is made available globally. We have collected some valuable early feedback on the new EX Raid Battle feature and will look to further test and hone the experience through the feedback of the dedicated global Trainer community. 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.

The first EX Raid Passes will be sent out soon, and those invited will have an opportunity to try out the new system as early as September 6. Stay tuned for more updates as we launch the EX Raid Battle field test to more Gyms in the weeks ahead. We look forward to reading all your constructive feedback on our social media channels and encourage you to continue share your thoughts throughout the EX Raid Battle field test!

[Rumour] Pokémon GO Could Be Getting Gen III Monsters


It seems that Niantic has been working on bringing Generation III Pocket Monsters to Pokémon GO. A new update is in the works that some fans have found data for 135 Pokémon in the APK metadata.

This doesn’t meant that they will be coming right away, as Gen II Pokémon took their time to emerge after news broke out that they were in bound and even then, they were introduced in drips and drabs so we could see a similar pattern happening here.

A new item was also found in the files and points towards a “Super Incubator”, it is apparently purple in colour but it is not known what kind of effect it will have on eggs, whether it will hatch them quicker or hold more than one egg, nor whether it is a purchasable item or reward.

Pokken Tournament DX Demo Coming Soon For Switch


The Pokémon Fighting game that blends elements of Tekken with fan favourite Pocket Monsters will be getting a demo for the Deluxe version soon for Nintendo Switch.

[Europe] Pokémon Gold & Silver 3DS Virtual Console To Get Packaged Versions At Select Stores In Europe


With the release of Pokémon Red, Blue & Yellow to 3DS Virtual Console behind us, Fan can now look forwards to Pokémon Gold & Silver releasing on September 22nd. In Europe, Nintendo have announced that there will be special edition “packaged” versions in select stores which won’t have a cartridge but will contain a download card for the games. The boxes don’t add any extra value but may be a quaint collector’s item.

There is no news whether the special packaged version will be coming to North America or Japan but it would be a little odd if they were left out as usually its Europe that misses out on the special collector’s items.
