'Pokemon GO': Niantic confirms first Legendary creature, but there is catch

MYSTIC7's Brandon Martyn showing a "Pokemon GO" Legendary Raid Pass.

In the trailer for legendaries that was released on Thursday, players are seen fighting Articuno, Moltres, Zapdos, Articuno, Ho-Oh, and Lugia, and their CP is actually not that much higher than the CP of tier four Pokemon. The upside to this is that even just catching one or two Legendary Pokemon can already significantly boost a player's attack strength.

The first official Pokemon Go event, which has been dubbed Pokémon Go Fest, is taking place this upcoming weekend in Chicago. However, the motivation gained by your Pokemon this way will be less effective than the motivation gained when you give them Berries while you are physically around the Pokemon gym.

If the Chicago players are successful, then Legendary Raids will start appearing around the world. If they don't succeed, it's unclear what will happen. If Trainers and their team are able to successfully defeat a Legendary Raid Boss, they will have the opportunity to catch a Legendary Pokemon of their own! As for the Pokemon GO Legendary update, we mentioned a while ago, new Gym Raids have been officially added. These creatures will then help you to combat hard Raid Bosses and Gym Battles.

Mithali cautions India despite 'home' advantage in WWC semis
Confident Indian women will play against Australia in the second semi-final of the ICC Women's World Cup on Thursday. Australia pacer Megan Schutt bowled a yorker, but India's Veda Krishnamurthy was able to dig it to long on.

Niantic Labs, the one responsible for creating the popular game, has not given any comment with regard to a possible release date or if the Legendary Pokemon are coming at all.

Fixed an issue where Pokémon are not properly returned to their Trainer after defending a Gym.

As everyone who plays the game, or is a fan of Pokemon general, Legendary Pokemon are the very rare and extremely powerful kinds as seen from the original games. A new trailer (above) shows players receiving a special invitation for a Legendary Raid. But stay tuned. Legendary Pokemon will be arriving soon, and we'll keep you posted.
