Legendary Pokemon Finally Coming to Pokemon Go on July 22

Niantic and The Pokemon Company have confirmed that legendary Pokemon are finally coming to Pokemon Go.

A new update is coing to game on July 22nd, which coincides with Pokemon Go Fest in Chicago’s Grant Park. Featured above, you can view a new live-action trailer showing Pokemon trainers running into legendary beasties, only to see their very own Pokemon get obliterated.

Over on the Niantic blog, the developer mentions legendaries will appear as eggs randomly within gyms. Once the eggs hatches, you’ll have to get others to team up and defeat the legendary raid boss. After this, you might be able to catch it to use for yourself. You can’t, however, leave them behind to defend a gym.
