    News and updates about Pokémon, events, and game mods



    The legendary Pokémon Lugia has returned as a legendary raid boss to Pokémon Go, with a new and improved Sky Attack move.

    Additionally, there are confirmed reports of players encountering it shiny. There are unconfirmed reports stating that a shiny Lugia will be caught in the first ball (as long as it doesn't block/dodge it, of course).

    Speculation: Furthermore, it appears that the rates for encountering a shiny Lugia might be higher than standard rates, as there have been numerous sightings in the early hours of it's re-introduction to being a raid boss.

    It's re-introduction is likely due to it's starring role in the Movie 21: Everybody's story.

    Have you encountered a shiny Lugia? Was it 100% capture rate? Let us know in the comments section!

    It will be available to players with Japanese 3DS and copies of Pokemon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun or Ultra Moon.

    Based on preliminary translations, players obtain the serial code when the movie tickets are pre-booked between April 13th to July 12th, 2018.
    The codes will be redeemable between April 13th to September 30th, 2018.
