Legendary Pokémon Finally Coming to 'Pokémon GO': Watch The Trailer

Be careful, however, the Legendary Pokemon captured will be able to help you in the Raid Bosses and fighting 'Arènes, but it will be impossible to set them as defense for them.

As everyone who plays the game, or is a fan of Pokemon general, Legendary Pokemon are the very rare and extremely powerful kinds as seen from the original games. Ahead of the event which marks the first anniversary of the game, the makers of Pokemon GO have released major updates to the game that you just wouldn't want to miss.

And Niantic have confirmed that if trainers around the world catch enough Pokemon, a mystery challenge will be unveiled in Grant Park.

While Pokemon GO has had its fair share of missteps since launch, its commercials and advertising have always excelled at pitching the game as a fun way to bring entire cities together to catch their favorite Pokemon.

So, folks in Chicago attending the event will get first dibs on legendaries, while players around the world will get a chance to encounter the same monsters if the requirements are met.

To announce the news, Niantic released a new live-action trailer to give players a hint about how Legendary Pokemon Raids will work. If it is defeated, legendary Pokemon will begin to appear in Raid Battles around the world.

Dubbed Pokemon Go Fest, the event is scheduled to take place on July 22nd, where attendees will find increased Pokemon encounters, special PokeStops, unique challenges and have the opportunity to earn an exclusive medal.

Note: While this new trailer shows the five Legendary birds: Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Lugia and Ho-Oh, there's no word on whether Mewtwo (or his cute lil' bro Mew) will be part of this update. Niantic says that, if successful, legendaries will start appearing for everyone starting on July 23 (so probably Monday, July 24 in Australia), but only in legendary raids. Level 4 raids with Pokemon such as Tyranitar around that CP count are already in the game, so the CP count in the trailer is a potential placeholder value.
