Pokemon remains one of the most popular franchises Nintendo has.
And one of its biggest games this year is on mobile.
Pokemon Go continues to do well among a dedicated fanbase, many who have stuck around since its original release.
This week, Niantic will be ending one of their latest Legendary events, meaning time is running out to catch a certain Pokemon.
Rayquaza has been available to battle at Gyms since early March, but will be leaving the official rotation on March 16.
That gives Trainers just a few more day to grab the Legendary, before it’s replaced.
There’s also a chance that a new top tier Pocket Monster will be brought in to replace Rayquaza, although Niantic haven’t said who yet.
Trainers should also know that the current XP bonuses and Windy egg rewards will also be running out by the end of the week.
“The dust has settled on our legendary week of Raid Battles, and 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,” Niantic explains.
“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.”
Fans are also hopeful that another Nintendo Direct event could be held soon, only this one will have a specific title as its focus.
Nintendo games news concerning the upcoming Pokemon Switch RPG release could be next for the Direct treatment, following the big announcements we just got for Super Smash Bros.
This latest rumour doesn’t come from an online source or rumour, but is instead based on new evidence found by fans.
It all stems from Nintendo updating their official Direct webpages.
The online Direct archive for previous broadcasts now has a new empty spot, which suggests something new is being cooked up.
This is what has been seen in the past when Nintendo have been working on a new announcement.
What makes fans think it may have something to do with the upcoming Pokemon RPG is that a previous Pokemon Direct broadcast has been removed from the page.
Resetera User Galava and Pokefan are the ones who has been gathering the details and sharing it online.
“I’ve done some digging around, and a similar situation has happened before,” Pokefan wrote.
“Pokemon Direct that revealed Sun and Moon was removed on 10th May 2017, a month later a new Pokemon Direct happened on 6th June 2017, showcasing Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon and Pokken port.
“This could indicate a Pokemon Direct is coming in the near future.”
As noted above, there are no reports currently indicating that Nintendo are planning a new Direct event before E3 2018.
