Lugia and Articuno made themselves available over the weekend at Pokémon GO Fest 2017 as promised, leaving fans hungry for more legendary Pokémon to hunt down. Niantic CEO John Hanke recently hinted at the dates that the next two will be found in the wild.
Zapdos and Moltres are next in line, and in the same blog post where Hanke explains the technical difficulties that plagued the festival, he dropped the dates that the two birds can be scooped up.
As these events unfold, Trainers all around the world will have a chance to capture even more Legendary Pokémon. Based on the efforts Saturday at Pokémon GO Fest, Lugia and Articuno were unlocked. In the weeks ahead, they will be joined by Moltres and Zapdos.
- Articuno (Team Mystic) released on Saturday, July 22 and available through Monday, July 31.
- Moltres (Team Valor) to be released on Monday, July 31 and available through Monday, August 7.

Happy hunting! Zapdos is the most competitive of the original legendary birds in the main series, so we’ll have to see how he stacks up in Pokémon GO.
