Pokemon Go is in the middle of a Gen 2 celebration after Celebis arrival earlier this week, and now another legendary from the Johto region comes back to the game for a limited period. From now until the end of the Johto Week event, players around the world will again be able to meet Rainbow Pokemon Ho-Oh.
In the same way as in the beginning, Ho-Oh will appear as a Raid Battle at gyms. In order to catch it, you must first collaborate with other players in a fitness room where a Ho-Oh Raid takes place and challenges the legendary of a match; Once defeated, you will be rewarded with Premier Balls and a chance to catch it.
Ho-Oh is a dual Fire / Flying type, so you'll want to bring strong Rock Pokemon like Golem, Tyranites, and the game's latest legendary Regirock, to fight it. This time, Niantic threatens to also get a chance to meet a shining Ho-Oh, making it a great incentive to visit a nearby Raid, even if you already have the legendary in your collection.
Ho-Oh will only be available until August 27, while the Johto Week event is scheduled to end at. 1
Ho-Oh is not the only Johto Legendary that makes a comeback. Next month, Niantic expands a new batch of Field Research tasks related to Fire Pokemon. If you manage to complete enough of them to break through, you will be rewarded with another meeting with Entei, one of the three legendary dogs from Pokemon Gold and Silver.
The mentioned Regirock will appear in Raid Battles until September 20. Soon after, Niantic will host the next Pokemon Go Community Day, which will contain Gen 2 starting Chikorita.
