After an initial deluge of press and players, Pokemon Go has finally settled into a rather comfortable and profitable space. However, all of that might change this summer. When Niantic's global product marketing lead Archit Bhargava stepped up to receive the award, he mentioned in his speech that this summer would "be legendary".
Niantic has been hinting at the arrival of Legendaries in Pokemon GO for a long time now.
While the popularity of Pokémon Go has died down a bit, the game still has an impressive monthly active player count, and they're all waiting for one thing: Legendary Pokémon. Moreover, Rock types are usually weak to water but the said "Pokemon Go" character is more at home in the water than on land. Recent rumors suggests that the next major Pokemon GO update will focus on gyms so the wait for legendaries may not be too excruciating. Now that Niantic sort of confirms the summer release date, all that's left for fans is to guess when exactly Pokemon GO is being updated with the much-awaited features.
Video game stories from other sites on the web. Niantic is highly likely to hold a big event, maybe even the biggest Pokemon GO event ever, on this special occasion. The three teams are fashioned after the three Legendary Birds from the original games. What about Mewtwo? Will we be recreating a particular scene from the app's trailer? Fans are also treated to a doubled amount of Pokestops and Candy that they can get from the Buddy Pokemon. Dataminers have also seen such Pokemon from Gen 2, which are Entei, Raikou, Lugia, Suicune, Ho-oh and Celebi. If that is the case, then trainers should take advantage of the upcoming event and dedicate some of their time to capture the rarest creatures in Pokemon GO.
