Having had a bunch of Legendary Pokemon to battle this week, it’s finally been revealed who won the ruck.
Niantic have been busy conducting a Legendary clash between Raids bosses this week, with the winner effecting how the game’s next event bonuses would run.
And Having seen Rayquaza proven victorious and Groudon and Kyogre removed from Gyms, there are now new rewards to enjoy.
A new Pokemon Go event has now kicked off which will be offering special bonuses.
These will include Pokemon hatching from eggs that prefer Windy weather – Pocket Monsters like Abra, Slowpoke and Bagdon.
Raid Battles will also be affected in the same way, while Double XP rewards are also available to those who play until March 16.
The new event bonuses are available from today and will fill the void before the next Community Day.
“The ancient Legendary Pokémon Rayquaza has proven victorious!” a message from Niantic explains.
“So from March 5 to March 16, Pokémon that prefer windy weather will hatch more often from Eggs.
“But that’s not the only place you’ll see weather-enhanced Pokémon.
“Raid Battles at Gyms near you will also favor appearances by Pokémon that prefer windy weather.
“Plus, enjoy double XP until March 16—a special thanks for all of your enthusiasm and hard work!
“In need of Premium Raid Passes? Don’t forget that special boxes containing them will be available in the shop until March 11.
“Although Kyogre and Groudon have left for now, you can continue to challenge Rayquaza in Raid Battles until March 16!
“Get the most out of hatching, catching, and battling during this limited time.”
It has also been confirmed by Niantic that these new Legendary boxes that are currently available to buy from the in-game store will be leaving soon.
Trainers have until March 11 to snap the next bundles, which don’t look like they’ll be leaving when the Legendary fight is over.
Fans have been busy over the past couple of weeks, with differing events and Legendary Raids filling their gaming schedule.
But Pokemon Go news this week has been dominated by new updates concerning Community Day 3.
We now know that Bulbasaur will be the special Pokemon available to catch enmasse on March 25, which could be one of the month’s only events.
We also know that those Bulbasaurs caught during event hours will also have a chance at learning a special move, which will be exclusive to those Pocket Monsters.
But for Trainers to grab this new move, they will need to evolve an event Bulbasaur up to a Venusaur.
This was confirmed in a new Community Day update sent out by Niantic this week, which also confirms that this new move will be announced soon, ahead of the big day.
Another big thing to note about the upcoming Community Day is that there is a good chance a new Shiny will be made available.
Community Day 2 featured a high level of Shiny Dratinis and fans are hoping this will continue for future Community Days being planned.
