Pokemon GO has been heavily focused on raids for the last few months and that seems like it will continue for some time. Players have dedicated themselves to organizing groups and taking down these tough creatures, and today there’s a new announcement that mixes things up. As Rayquaza heads for the exits Niantic is bringing back one of the more challenging Pokemon for raids. Lugia will return to Pokemon GO raids on March 16th.
This won’t be the same Lugia you have a chance at before. This time he has a special move that will make him unique compared to the previous variety.
“The Legendary Pokémon Lugia will return to Raid Battles in Pokémon GO on March 16,” reads the announcement. “A powerful Psychic- and Flying-type Pokémon originally discovered in the Johto region, Lugia will appear in Gyms across the globe as the Legendary Pokémon Rayquaza returns to the ozone layer. You can challenge Lugia, which will know the newly improved Flying-type move Sky Attack, until April 2. So gather your strongest party to take on this Legendary Pokémon before it returns to the sea!”
Not the full month that we’ve seen before, but it should be enough time for most to get a Lugia if they haven’t already.
