New Pokémon GO Legendaries Fly-In!
Are you guys ready for some new Pokémon GO Legendaries? I’m not going to lie, I have seriously been slacking on the Legendary entries in my PokéDex, but I am so ready for some new Legendary Pokémon.
So it’s been a little while since Pokémon GO released Pokémon from the Hoenn region, so it’s only fair that Hoenn’s Legendary Pokémon would soon follow. If you want to finish your Hoenn PokéDex, you have to catch Latias and Latios as well.
If you aren’t familiar with the Hoenn region and it’s Legendary Pokémon, here is the run down. Latias is the red and white Pokémon and Latios is the blue and white Pokémon, both shown in the image above.
These Pokémon are both Dragon and Psychic-type Pokémon that originate from the Gameboy Advanced games Pokémon Ruby & Pokémon Sapphire. They also appear in the Nintendo 3DS remakes Pokémon Omega Ruby & Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.
These sensitive Pokémon are drawn to compassionate spirits and are known for being very intelligent. Latias and Latios are also able to communicate with humans telepathically. Pretty cool, huh?
Latias and Latios, also known as the Eon Pokémon, are also built for speed and stealth. They are extremely fast in flight and they each have their own special talents. Latias can make itself virtually invisible by refracting light off of its down, while Latios can fly faster than a jet plane.
These two speedy Legendaries can be found in Pokémon GO Raid Battles. Each one will be available in different regions for a limited time. After a while, their locations will switch, so each region gets a chance to catch them both.
Starting on April 2nd Latias will appear in Raid Battles in Europe and Asia. During this time Latios will fly into Raid Battles in North America, South America, and Africa. Make sure to catch whichever Pokémon is available in your area before they switch regions on May 8th.
On May 8th Latias will fly into Raid Battles in North America, South America, and Africa, while Latios will appear in Raid Battles in Europe and Asia. Once the Eon Pokémon have switched regions, you will be able to catch the remaining Legendary Pokémon from Hoenn.
These two stealthy Pokémon will be available to battle and catch in Raid Battles until June 5th, so don’t wait too long or you will miss your chance. They may be available in the future like other Legendary Pokémon have, but we won’t know for sure if and when that will happen.
These strong Legendaries will not be easy to defeat though. It may be a good time to go out and catch some strong Raid Pokémon. Pokémon that are strong against Dragon and Psychic-types would be your best bet, like Mawile and Tyranitar. These two Pokémon will also be available in Raid Battles while Latias and Latios are in the area, so you will have a better chance of defeating and catching the Eon Pokémon.
Time is of the essence, so grab your friends and your strongest Pokémon and take on Latias and Latios while you can. They will be a great addition to your team, and you can impress all your friends with these two Legendary Pokémon.
The Pokémon GO Team Played An April Fools Joke On Trainers!
On March 31st, the Pokémon GO Team released an update that was a bit contradictory. The update stated that Trainers could experience Pokémon GO like never before with all new graphics. They also stated that the Pokémon would be displayed in cutting edge quality that would blow your mind.
At first, it seemed like Pokémon GO would be getting a new graphics update to keep up with all the new devices out there, but upon further inspection, it turns out it was just an April Fools joke. All of the Pokémon sprites that appear in Pokémon GO are now displayed in 8-Bit graphics.
I know this must have been disappointing to some Trainers, but I actually love it! Seeing all of my favorite Pokémon displayed in nostalgic 8-Bit graphics just makes me smile. Honestly, I think a lot of the older Trainers that grew up playing Pokémon really can appreciate the 8-Bit sprites.
I feel like the younger Trainers may not be particularly pleased by this stunt, but it’s not permanent. All Pokémon sprites will appear in their old school graphics until April 7th. After that, they will all revert back to their normal Pokémon GO graphics.
Although this was intended to be just a bad April Fools joke, I really enjoyed it. If we were given the option to keep the Pokémon in their 8-Bit forms, I think I would keep them that way. I just like the way it looks for some reason, so I will be enjoying it while I can.
Until next time….be Legendary!
