Pokemon Go Gets Legendary this July
Pokémon Go, the mobile game by Niantic and The Pokemon Company has undeniably had its effect on the pop-culture landscape around the world. The developers have been constantly churning out updates for the famous mobile game and have announced their plans for the future. Recently gamers have received a confirmation that legendaries will be coming this July! Here are all the details that have surfaced about the event.
After the game’s Easter event there are said to be two new events lined up for players to participate in. One of them will be the long-rumored Pokémon Go Legendary Event. This event was hinted upon by Nianatic’s Asian General Manager, Yoshiji Kawashima and Asian General Marketing Manager Kenji Suka.
During an interview with the Japanese site “K-Tai Watch”, Kawashima mentioned plans for a huge event during the summer of 2017 which will feature new in-game mechanics that will be introduced to the mobile app. These features include the much requested PvP and trading systems which are a staple in the Pokémon franchise. Though there are no solid dates announced for the release, Niantic did confirm that co-op play will be available in spring. Code located within the game has already hinted a new raid system is in development and players are hoping that it will be released together with the game’s Gym battle redesign.
These updates are truly a welcome change when it comes to Pokémon Go. Niantic did well with their events and updates so far, but still struggled to maintain the interests of a chunk of their player-base. With the introduction of PvP, raids, trading, and of course legendaries the social aspect of Pokémon Go will surely receive a huge boost. Everyone will be running around trying to catch Mew and Mewtwo so that they can show it off to their friends!
Personally, I can’t wait to start battling my friends! My high CP Espeon and Vaporeon are ready to say hello to would be challengers. Are you more excited about the idea of battling other trainers or the chance to catch legendary Pokemon?
