'Pokemon GO' News, Updates: Next Batch Of Legendaries Revealed; Niantic Addressed Recent Event Fiasco
Now that both Lugia and Articuno were the first wave of Legendaries to have graced the AR game that is "Pokemon GO," trainers are now anticipating the arrival of other ultra-powerful monsters. It looks like game maker Niantic has ended such musings as they officially announced who the next batch will be entering the fray.
In a lengthy blog posted by Niantic CEO John Hanke, he officially revealed that both Moltres and Zapdos are slated to arrive in "Pokemon GO" in the coming weeks. He stated that the former will be arriving on Monday, July 31 until August 7. It will then be replaced by the latter that will go live from August 7 until the 14th. Players, on the other hand, stated that Zapdos should come first to have the proper order of these Legendaries (ArticUNO, ZapDOS, MolTRES). Either way, players are still delighted to learn such news.
Fans can still recall that Niantic released Legendaries Articuno and Lugia during the network issue laden "Pokemon GO Fest" in Chicago. Moreover, Korea Portal reported about the alleged staged challenge goals during the event that made the above-mentioned monsters possible.
Going back to the blog post, Hanke also addressed the network connectivity fiasco during the said "Pokemon GO" event. He pointed out the oversaturated network of their partner providers that resulted in connection issues that have irked thousands of attendees. Albeit being heckled at by their player base, Hanke went to the battlefield and talked to some of the faithfuls to have a better understanding of the situation. The CEO then took these useful pointers as offshore events (Yokohama, Japan, and Europe) are now down the pipeline.
Niantic has yet to disclose the dates as to when the aforementioned international "Pokemon GO" gatherings would take place. In the meantime, check out a video about the game here:
