“Pokemon Go” players have been patiently waiting for the release of thr Legendary birds. Now, new reports are claiming that Articuno, Moltres and Zapdos might be launched in Spring 2017.
Niantic is likely to release the Legendary birds starting March this year, SlashGear reported. The news outlet, however, added that it is quite impossible for Articuno, Moltres and Zapdos to all arrive in “Pokemon Go” this year.
“First – there’s almost zero chance the three Legendary Bird Pokemon will be released this year,” SlashGear has said about the Legendary birds of “Pokemon Go.” “It was considered once or twice, but moving forward with Baby Pokemon and the release of Gen 2 Pokemon took precedence.”
The publication stated that Niantic has to focus more on the Gen 2 pokemon now before releasing another set of creatures. However, it suggests that there is also a possibility that Legendary birds Articuno, Moltres and Zapdos will only be available for some “Pokemon Go” players.
No word on whether Articuno, Moltres and Zapdos will be available for purchase or if “Pokemon Go” players need to catch them through the game. SlashGear also suggests that the Legendary birds might not arrive via a Holiday event.
Meanwhile, other rumors suggest that Niantic might host a Valentine event for all “Pokemon Go” users. Though no official details have been made public as of yet, fans believe more game elements are coming.
