Yes. You read that right.
This Pokemon GO Fest is going to be…wait for it…Legendary.
You can expect to see all the Legendary Pokemon who have been in Legendary Raids since the beginning to make an appearance during GO Fest 2021. Apparently they want a moment on the stage as Pokemon GO celebrates five years.
Legendary Pokemon will be on rotation every hour during GO Fest on Sunday, July 18th, 2021, from 10AM to 6PM local time. You will be able to see Legendary Pokemon take stage every hour from the sea to sky! Hot to cold! They will all show up! And if you miss one hour then don’t worry! They will be making an encore performance later in the day!
