Trainers,

in spite of all the technical problems that plague the GO Fest event today, we have somehow managed to get the Legendary Pokémon to appear in the wild!

Trainers worldwide managed to unlock the following bonuses until Monday, July 24, 05:00 PDT:

  • Double Stardust
  • Double Candy
  • Double XP
  • Increased Pokémon encounters
  • Reduced hatching distance
  • Reduced buddy distance

In addition, Lugia is the first revealed Pokémon GO Legendary, with Articuno being the second, as Team Mystic has contributed the most during the GO Fest event. These raids are now available worldwide.

These Trainers also played an integral role in revealing that Lugia would be the first Legendary Pokémon to enter the real world. In addition to Lugia, the number of Pokémon caught during Pokémon GO Fest by members of Team Instinct, Team Mystic, and Team Valor were tallied up, and, the winner was… Team Mystic! To celebrate this victory, Articuno will join Lugia in Raid Battles everywhere starting immediately. Don’t worry, Team Instinct and Team Valor, the Legendary Pokémon Zapdos and Moltres will also make their way into the real world soon, so stay tuned for more information.

It’s time to adventure together! Gather your friends and family and keep an eye out for Legendary Pokémon Eggs appearing at Gyms near you.
