It’s time for another update for your favourite augmented reality (AR) title Pokémon GO, adding more of those lovely cartoon critters to chase after. This time Niantic Labs has added more flying and dragon type Pokémon discovered in the Hoenn region for a limited time only.
That’s right, instead of looking down at your phones you’ll be pointing them towards the sky trying to catch these winged beasts. Plus for the first time ever, Legendary Pokémon Rayquaza – who originally appeared in Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire – will become available in Raid Battles for a limited time.
The update will be out from 9th February, with trainers able to catch these elusive Pokémon until 16th March. And because Niantic is in the giving mood and in celebration of over 100 Hoenn region Pokémon becoming available in the videogame, every Pokémon encountered in the wild from now until 13th February will be one originally discovered in the Hoenn region.
Take note that the 14th February marks the departure of the Legendary Water-type Pokémon Kyogre from Raid Battles. To help Trainers fill out their growing Pokédexes, new special boxes containing Raid Passes, Incubators, and Star Pieces will be available in the in-game store until 23rd February. Lure Modules will continue to have an extended six-hour duration until that date as well, you lucky people.
That’s it for Pokémon GO updates, don’t forget that Niantic Labs recently acquired Escher Reality to up its AR game further. Plus there’s always Harry Potter: Wizards Unite to look forward to later this year. As always, if you want the latest AR and VR updates then you know where to go, and that’s VRFocus.
