The Pokémon Go Legendary Pokémon are often on rotation. Players can catch a Legendary Pokémon at Raids. These same players will have also noticed that the Legendary Pokémon Lugia has been the one and only Legendary available at Raids since the start of September. 


September has already been eventful for Pokémon Go, with the new Season of Mischief, the Psychic Spectacular, the debut of Shiny Ditto in the wild and the debut of Inkay! It’s about time that we’re in for a new Legendary rotation. Different Legendaries will be raiding gyms and available for capture in September 2021!
