Exclusive Raid Egg FAQ

How do I enter a Legendary Raid?
You need a Premium or a Normal Raid Pass invitation, which is available at any Gym. The Legendary Raids are identical to Normal and Rare Raids, they just feature different Pokémon.

Are Legendary Pokémon capturable in Pokémon GO?
Yes they are! Their base capture chance is 2% (Legendary Beasts, Lugia) and 3% (Legendary Birds), which results in a rather difficult capture encounter, comparable to catching a fully evolved starter or Dragonite. In addition, the following badge is available:

Legendary Battles Won Badge

Why didn’t you include Mewtwo, Mew, Ho-Oh and Celebi in the table above?
Mew and Celebi are Pokémon connected to nature, life, flourish, etc. It would be very, very strange to fight them in Raids when you take the Pokémon anime lore into consideration.

Mewtwo is available via the EX Raid Battle system. Ho-Oh is nowhere to be seen.

What is Antonio’s favourite Legendary?
