Pokemon Go in August sees more Legendary Pokemon in Raids, the Go Fest finale, and the Bugs Out! event

July on Pokémon Go is about to wrap up with the Ultra Unlocked Hisuian Discoveries event. It has been quite an eventful month with Pokémon Go Fest and other events. August promises to continue all the action. The final leg of the Fest will take place next month alongside the usual Community Day, Raids, and more.

August Raids

Niantic has been treating players with Legendary Pokémon in raids since last month, which featured Zapdos, Articuno, and Moltres. In August, Pokémon GO trainers will have a chance to add super powerful characters like Palkia, Zacian, Zamazenta, and Genesect to their squads. These Legendary Pokémon are definitely not something anyone would want to miss out on. Meanwhile, Mega Raids will feature Abomasnow, Slowbro, Ampharos, and a mystery Pokémon.


Spotlight Hours

Spotlight Hours are held every Tuesday from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm local time. This month’s spotlight Pokémon and bonuses are:

  • August 2nd – Hisuian Voltorb with 2x Catch Stardust
  • August 9th – Nidoran with 2x Catch XP
