How to catch Legendary Pokemon in Pokemon GO

Legendary Pokémon in Pokémon GO can be obtained in the following ways:

Legendary raids and EX raids

Difficulty 5 raids always offer Legendary Pokemon. With the exception of temporary events, these raids usually have a rotation of about 1 month for each pokemon.

Extraordinary Discovery Encounters

Periodically, Legendary Pokemon are made available as a weekly Field Research reward. As in legendary raids, the same pokemon usually appears for a month as a reward before being traded. Unfortunately, Niantic has changed this tradition and made more common Pokemon available as rewards.

Encounters after defeating Giovanni

Every month the game opens a new mission related to Team GO Rocket. Upon completing all stages and defeating the boss Giovanni, you are rewarded with an encounter to capture a Shadowy Legendary Pokemon. The quests follow the precise order of the Legendaries according to their numbering, ie Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Raikou, Entei, etc, always one per month.

Rewards for four GO Battle League wins

Niantic has introduced Legendary Pokemon as a rare reward for four wins in a single set in the GO Battle League. So far (March 2020), only Thundurus can be obtained this way.

In nature

In the specific case of Uxie, Mesprit and Azelf, these pokemons can be found in nature in regions close to the sea, rivers, lakes, etc. All of them are also regional Pokemon, meaning they can only be found in certain regions of the world. To find out where to find each one, check out our complete guide to regional Pokemon in Pokemon GO.

How to catch Mythical Pokemon in Pokemon GO

Mythical Pokémon in Pokémon GO are obtained in the following ways:

Special Research Rewards

Special Researches are the biggest and most difficult quests in Pokémon GO. Its steps involve very laborious tasks that can take months to complete. Four of them offer Mythic Pokemon as a reward:

  • a mythical discovery: meeting with Mew.
  • An oscillation in time: meeting with Celebi.
  • a millennial sleep: meeting with Jirachi.
  • Let's go, Meltan!: meeting with Meltan.

Through the Mystery Box

When transferring a Pokémon from Kanto to Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! (both from Nintendo Switch), you are rewarded with a Mystery Box that can be opened every 4 days. By doing so, a Meltan spawn will start for 30 minutes by your side, on average one per minute. To open the Mystery Box again, it is necessary to transfer a new pokémon.

The Mystery Box is also the most viable method of evolving a Meltan into Melmetal, as it takes 400 Candies. Other ways would be with Doces Raros or walking A LOT (20km per Doce).

Legendary raids and EX raids

Darkrai is the only Mythical Pokémon that has ever been made available in Legendary Raids and EX Raids. The pokémon has also been available, for a single event, as a reward for four victories in the GO Battle League.
