While trainers across the globe are still trying to catch the Legendary beast roaming through their regions, an upcoming Pokémon Go event in South Korea will unleash some familiar and surprising faces. Despite Niantic previously describing the already gone Generation I and II Legendary Pokémon as limited-time creatures, some trainers will have another shot at capturing the birds that kicked off Legendary raid battles.
Pulled from the Korean Pokémon Go site, a posting for the upcoming Pokémon FESTA celebration in Korea will include Pokémon Go Week as part of the overall festivities. The entire event runs from November 4th to November 12th, with North Korea still unable to play the game. Apart from enjoying pop-up shops, stamp rallies for the new Pokémon movie, and other Pokémon-themed activities, trainers in South Korea will have an increase in overall Pokémon spawns. As a bonus, the European region-exclusive Mr. Mime and the rare Pokémon Unown will appear during the event.
However, the most interesting aspect to the week of Pokémon Go goodies is that Seoul will house raids for Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, and Lugia, all of which are unavailable to capture anymore. Niantic released the Legendary birds worldwide after Chicago’s Pokémon Go Fest for a brief amount of time, with the belief they would never appear again. The Seoul event marks the first piece of evidence that Legendary Pokémon aren’t permanently removed from the game, meaning more events across the globe could include the elusive creatures again. Niantic hasn’t made an official statement on what the reappearance of the birds means for the future of Legendary Pokémon, but the Seoul event does mean it’s willing to break its “limited-time” rules.
Trainers in Seoul can enjoy the Legendary raids from November 10th to November 12th, so just the weekend of Pokémon Go Week. While some trainers outside of Korea might feel left out, Niantic still has the Halloween event running. Players can enjoy an increased spawn of Ghost-type Pokémon, including five from Generation III, as well as double candy rewards.
Pokémon Go is available for iOS and Android.
