Mewtwo, Kanto Regionals part of Pokémon GO’s Ultra Bonus Event

Mewtwo will be a Raid Boss for a month after Regirock leaves, while Kanto Regionals may hatch from Alolan Eggs.

Missed out on EX Raids? You’ll still need to do Raids, but now Mewtwo will be more accessible as part of the Ultra Bonus event in Pokémon GO! Following another return of the Kanto Legendary Birds as Raid Bosses for a week, Mewtwo will appear for a month.

First, starting September 13 at 1:00 P.M. (PDT), Trainers all over the world will be able to encounter three Legendary Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region!. Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres will appear in Raid Battles until September 20. And if you’re lucky, you may be able to encounter their Shiny forms! Also, Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region will appear more frequently all over the world and show up more frequently in Raid Battles until September 30!

And there’s more! On September 20 at 1:00 P.M. (PDT), Mewtwo will come to Raid Battles for the first time ever! Mewtwo has previously only been available to Trainers invited to EX Raids, but now all Trainers will be able to challenge the Legendary Psychic-type Pokémon until October 23 at 1:00 P.M. (PDT). So prepare yourself, and don’t miss your opportunity to encounter this powerful Pokémon before it disappears!

Alolan Eggs may be more attractive to players as well. There’s a chance they will contain one of the four Kanto Regional Pokémon: Farfetch’d, Tauros, Kangaskhan and Mr. Mime.

Finally, there is one more special surprise: Farfetch’d, Kangaskhan, Mr. Mime, and Tauros will be joining the Alolan Pokémon in 7 km Eggs through the end of September! These Pokémon have not migrated to many parts of the world, so don’t miss this unique opportunity to send Gifts to friends and finally achieve a complete Kanto Pokédex!
