Pokémon Go Fest may have been a disaster, but if there was one bright spot to be found in the weekend’s events, it was the unlocking of a couple of Legendary Pokémon for folks to catch. Over the next couple of weeks, there’ll be two more.


Niantic announced today that Moltres will be available between July 31-August 7, and Zapdos will be available between August 8-14. Articuno, meanwhile, will disappear on July 31.

As a reminder, here’s what you need to do in order to catch a Legendary:

As Trainers around the world go out and explore their neighborhoods in search of Pokémon and Raid Battles, they can keep an eye out for unique Legendary Eggs appearing at Gyms. If Trainers and their team are able to successfully defeat a Legendary Raid Boss, they’ll have the opportunity to catch a Legendary Pokémon of their own! While Legendary Pokémon will help them take on the toughest Raid Bosses and Gym Battles, they’re not willing to leave their Trainer’s side, so they can’t be left to defend Gyms.
