Can I get a chance at Ho-Oh again in Pokemon GO? How long will I have to do so?
Pokemon GO has been offering players the chance to get legendary Pokemon via Raid Battles, where players ban together to take on a “boss” Pokemon of sorts. With three regions worth of Pokemon, developer Niantic has been circulating who is in a Raid Battle and who isn’t. Players have been wanting another chance at Ho-oh, the legendary bird of Johto, and today, you get your chance. For on a post on their website, they put this:
Get ready for a surprise: The Legendary Pokémon Ho-Oh will return to Raid Battles in Pokémon GO on May 19! A powerful Fire- and Flying-type Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region, the Rainbow Pokémon Ho-Oh will appear in Gyms across the globe alongside Latias and Latios, which will remain in their designated regions. Plus, if you’re fortunate, you might be able to encounter a Shiny Ho-Oh after you win the battle! You can challenge Ho-Oh until June 7 and seize the opportunity to add this Legendary Pokémon to your Pokédex. So, gather your strongest party to take on Ho-Oh before it returns to the skies!
So don’t miss your chance to go get Ho-oh!
