Capture Mewtwo during Pokémon GO Ultra Bonus Event

Pokémon GO fans looking to catch ‘em all will have a great chance to do so over the next few weeks. Niantic has announced a special Ultra Bonus Event celebrating the completion of Professor Willow’s research tasks.

Through September 13th to September 20th, Legendary Pokémon Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres will appear in Raid Battles. Trainers who have some luck on their side may encounter their Shiny forms during this time as well. Kanto Region Pokémon will also appear in Raid Battles and in the wild more frequently until September 30th. 

Perhaps the highlight of the event is the chance to capture Legendary Pokémon Mewtwo. Beginning September 20th at 1:00 P.M. PT, the Legendary Pokémon will begin to appear in Raid Battles all over the world. This is quite the opportunity for trainers, as it will be the first time Mewtwo will show up in Raid Battles. Trainers will be able to capture Mewtwo until October 23rd at 1:00 P.M. PT.

Another added bonus from the event, Farfetch’d, Kangaskhan, Mr. Mime, and Tauros will be available from 7 km Eggs until the end of September.

This event definitely presents a unique opportunity for trainers to capture Pokémon they wouldn’t often encounter. With Entei also appearing this month, it’s certainly going to be a busy time for players. Will you be grinding hard during this event in hopes to catch ‘em all? As always let us know your thoughts down below!
