For the next two weeks, get ready to go hunting in Pokemon Go, as there’s a new legendary Pokemon available for you to catch. The Pokemon in question is Ho-oh, the bird we all know from Pokemon Gold. Since it has a special status, Ho-oh will be available to catch only if you work together with other players during a legendary raid.
A new legendary Pokemon in Pokemon Go
Ho-oh makes its appearance in Pokemon Go for the first time. However, unlike other legendary Pokemon, it will be available in the game for a shorter period of time. Usually, they can be accessed for about a month. However, Ho-oh will be down for hunting between November 28th and December 12th. Therefore, gather your group of friends and hurry up.
Legendary Pokemon are rare and unique and, in the original games, only Master Trainers could catch them. Also, once you faced it in battle, you only got one chance at catching it. Therefore, Pokemon Go had to maintain this special status of these creatures.
Legendary Pokemon have a different status in Pokemon Go
However, unlike in the original games, legendary Pokemon are not one of a kind. Their status is given by the fact that you need teamwork to catch one. This means you have to settle a legendary raid, which requires a gathering of at least 20 players.
Once they stumble upon the legendary Pokemon, players have to use all the creatures they had caught so far and try to weaken the special one. If their Pokemon is successful, they can get their very own legendary. Therefore, the creatures are not unique, so there shouldn’t be any competition between the players.
Until December 12th, players can start roaming the streets in large groups, and hope they might be given a chance to catch and own their very own legendary Ho-oh.
