Reshiram, Zekrom and Kyurem coming to Pokémon GO

Although we harbor concerns about the future of Pokémon GO, there are still many reasons for players to be excited. The latest is the chance to catch the Generation V legendaries from Pokémon Black and Pokémon White: Reshiram, Zekrom and Kyurem! The first to be featured will be the fiery and ferocious Reshiram.

From the official site:

Three draconic roars can be heard in the distance. One belongs to a Pokémon that’s capable of scorching the world when people turn their backs on the truth. Another belongs to a Pokémon that can raze entire kingdoms with its electricity if ideals are not revered. The final roar belongs to a Pokémon within which dwells an even greater power bound by extreme cold.

Originally discovered in the Unova region and first met by Trainers in Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version, Legendary Pokémon Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem will soon be making their Pokémon GO debut in five-star raids!

Be sure to have your Remote Raid Passes stocked before Tuesday, May 26, 2020, when Reshiram, the Vast White Pokémon, will be the first to arrive in Pokémon GO!
