Official AR screenshot of the Legendary Pokémon Lugia in Pokémon GO
The Legendary Lugia has officially returned to Pokémon GO Raid Battles. This time it comes with an improved version of the move Sky Attack and is available from March 16 until April 2. Shiny Lugia has also been added to Pokémon GO for the first time.
This rare Legendary Pokémon may reveal its true colors after successfully competing a Raid Battle against it. At this point, you’ll have a chance to capture Shiny Lugia for yourself.

Team Mystic dominated the second official Pokémon GO Community Day by catching the most Pokémon per player
The second official Pokémon GO Community Day wrapped up last month in various territories across the globe, including the Americas, the Asia-Pacific region, Europe and Africa. The featured Pokémon for the February 2018 worldwide event was Dratini with an exclusive move, triple Stardust and three-hour Lures.
During the second official Pokémon GO Community Day, Team Mystic managed to catch the most Dratini throughout the globe, except in Oceania – as shown in the official charted map above.
New Pokémon GO Eggstravaganza event kicks off
A new Pokémon GO Eggstravaganza event is set to kick off tomorrow, March 22, and will run until April 2. The official announcement and details from the development team at Niantic is as follows:
It’s time to get cracking on a special Egg event! The Pokémon GO Eggstravaganza is coming back on March 22 at 1:00 p.m. PDT, and this time you’ll have even more chances to hatch certain Pokémon!
This year, an even greater variety of Pokémon will be found in 2 km Eggs, and only those Eggs will be available from PokéStops throughout the event! This means that Pokémon that normally hatch from 5 km or 10 km Eggs, such as Wynaut or Ralts, will be found in 2 km Eggs until the event ends on April 2 at 1:00 p.m. PDT. There will also be an increased hatch rate of certain Pokémon, such as Pichu and Togepi.
Your eggs-traordinary efforts will bring rewards! Every Egg hatched during the event will also include bonus Candy to help you power up your newly hatched Pokémon. Additionally, double Stardust is available throughout the event.
The in-game shop also has special boxes to help you get the most out of hatching your Eggs, which include Super Incubators and Star Pieces. So lace up your shoes and prepare for this egg-citing event!
