Raid Battles are the only way to catch a Legendary Pokemon in Pokemon GO. Normally, Niantic is releasing one Legendary Pokemon through Raid Battles but because of the success of the recently ended Summer Tour 2018 event, multiple Legendary Pokemon has become available.
The Ultra Bonus Reward make things possible for releasing multiple Legendary Pokemon at a time. The Legendary Raids have already started and for a limited time, fans will be able to get a chance to catch all the Legendary Pokemon from the Kanto region. If you’re still unaware of the Raid Bosses changes, here’s the complete and updated list for September’s Raid Boss.
Pokemon GO Raid Bosses (September 2018)
Note: Marked with * indicates the potential of dropping a Shiny Pokemon form.
Tier 1 Raid Bosses
Tier 2 Raid Bosses
Tier 3 Raid Bosses
- Alolan Raichu
Tier 4 Raid Bosses
- Alolan Marowak
Tier 5 Raid Bosses
- Moltres* (until Sep. 20, 2018)
- Zapdos* (until Sep. 20, 2018)
- Articuno* (until Sep. 20, 2018)
- Mewtwo (Sep. 20 – Oct. 23)
As you can see, right after the three legendary Pokemon disappears on September 20th, Mewtwo will be taking over the Raid battles once again. However, unlike before that requires an EX Raid Pass, the upcoming Mewtwo raids does not require any EX Raid Pass. Apart from these Raid boss changes, Pokemon GO has also updated their new Egg Hatch distances. You can check this link for the updated Egg hatch guide for this month.
While these things are good for this month, some fans are curious when will be the release of the other the mythical Pokemon Jirachi and Deoxys. Unfortunately, there’s still no official announcement from Niantic about this matter. However, Pokemon GO data miner Chrales has already found a trace of these two Mythical Pokemon in the Pokemon GO network traffic a few months ago. So I think we’re also getting close to seeing them.
