Pokemon Go’s newest Legendary Pokemon is now available for all players to battle.

Moltres, the fiery mascot of Team Valor replaces Articuno. Available only for a limited time, players worldwide will first need to battle Moltres in order to be able to capture it.

From now until Monday, August 7, you’ll find Moltres in Raid Battles. It’s worth noting that it may not show up instantly for you, since spawns are randomised based on your area.


Zapdos is the next Legendary Pokemon, and he’ll start showing up August 7-14. Remember, you can join a Raid with anyone, regardless of which team they’re on.

Ho-oh will replace Zapdos sometime later as the Legendary Pokemon to catch. If you’re just getting started with tracking and finding Pokemon, give our mega guide a look.
