Pokémon Go‘s current Legendary raid bosses—Latios and Latias—have swapped their global positions.

From now until June 5th, players in North America, South America, and Africa will be able to encounter the Generation III Legendary Latias in raid battles. As for Europe and Asia, trainers in those areas will be able to find Latios, the male version of the Legendary duo.

The Eon Pokémon may look similar, but Latios has a higher attack, while Latias boasts better defenses. However, the differences between the two are small, which means trainers should use the same types of Pokémon against the Dragon/Psychic-type Legendaries. Dark, Dragon, Fairy, and Ice-type Pokémon, such as Mawile, Lugia, and Umbreon, will perform the best against the duo in battle.

It’s unclear which powerful Pokémon will replace Latios and Latias in raid battles after June 5th, but trainers currently have another Legendary Pokémon they can capture. As part of the recently added Pokémon Field Research system, trainers have the opportunity to earn an encounter with Generation I’s Zapdos. Players can find the Flying/Electric-type bird by completing at least one research task consecutively for seven days.

Niantic also recently announced a few other exciting opportunities for trainers outside of Legendary encounters. During the upcoming May 19th Community Day, players across the globe will see increased spawns of the starter Pokémon Charmander for three hours at their local parks. Also, in July, the game will host another Pokémon Go Fest in Chicago. This time around, though, the developer has promised it’s learned from its mistakes after last year’s lawsuit-spawning fiasco.

Pokémon Go is available for iOS and Android.
