How to catch the legendary birds in ‘Pokmon Go’

Lugia and Articuno were launched in raid fights on Saturday, following Chicago’s Pokmon Go Fest. They’ve been turning up at the top of health clubs throughout the world as part of the brand-new Level 5 “famous” raids.

How to capture the famous bird trio

Yep: if you’re intending to bag yourself a good Articuno, you’re going to have to get a relocation on. The iciest member of the famous bird trio will stop being readily available on Monday 31 July. At this moment it will be changed by Moltres, which will be around for a week, then Zapdos, which will likewise be around for a week.

We have no idea exactly what will follow that. It’s possible Niantic will proceed to the Gen 2’s famous canine trio, or they might return to Articuno and duplicate the cycle.

Niantic can be harsh, however they’re definitely not harsh sufficient to put it in the video game for a week then eliminate it permanently.

Speaking of the best Pokmon, somebody has actually developed a convenient infographic to reveal which ‘mons work best versus the birds (you can disregard Mewtwo and Mew at the top of the infographic in the meantime, as they’re not out yet):

The TL; DR variation: Tyranitar with stone edge is your brand-new buddy, and will work well versus all 3 birds.

Golem is likewise a strong counter for Zapdos and moltres (he’ll do harm versus Articuno too, however will pass out extremely rapidly).
