Pokémon GO(Free) is only going to continue getting bigger and doing more as we inch closer to the release of the mainline Pokémon games on the Nintendo Switch this November. Those games are pretty heavily inpired by Pokémon GO and I bet there will be some tie in with the iOS and Switch games. Pokemon GO will no doubt continue to slowly grow with new features and when the hype around the mainline games builds up more. The Global Research Challenge that began a while ago will end with a bang through loads of bonuses and some surprises in Raid Battles.
Professor Willow’s Global Research Challenge has gone through various Fests and Safari Zone events and the celebration begins with an Ultra Bonus Event. This begins on September 13th at 1 PM PDT where all trainers can discover legendary Pokémon from the Kanto region. Raid Battles until September 20th will see Zapdos, Moltres, and Articuno appear alongside their Shiny forms in some situations. Raid Battles until the end of this month will see an increase in Kanto Region Pokémon as well.
Mewtwo joins in Riad Battles for the first time ever beginning September 20th at 1 PM PDT. Mewtwo was only available to EX Raid trainers. Mewtwo will be available until October 23rd. Farfetch’d, Kangaskhan, Mr. Mime, and Tauros will be available in 7 km Eggs until the end of September as well. If you’re looking forward to the Nintendo Switch Pokémon games, now is a great time to get into (or back into) Pokémon GO with the new content and features.
