The latest Legendary Pokemon in Pokemon Go, Ho-Oh, has been appearing in Raid Battles across the globe for the past two weeks, but it won't be around for much longer. The rainbow-colored Pokemon will only be available until December 14, making this your last day to catch one if you haven't yet.
Ho-Oh was unlocked in Pokemon Go late last month, following the successful completion of the game's Global Catch Challenge. The event tasked players with capturing 3 billion Pokemon worldwide. Players managed to surpass that goal just prior to the deadline, unlocking the rare Pokemon Farfetch'd for a brief time (Kangaskhan was also briefly unlocked in east Asia).
Ho-Oh was initially scheduled to be available until December 12; however, developer Niantic extended its duration by an additional 48 hours. The Legendary bird will now appear until 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET on December 14. Like previous Legendaries, you can encounter Ho-Oh in Raid Battles at Gyms. You'll need to team with other players to take it down, and only after you've defeated it will you have the opportunity to capture it.
Ho-Oh isn't the only new Pokemon to arrive in Pokemon Go recently. Last week, Niantic rolled out a huge update that added dozens of Gen 3 Pokemon to the game, such as Treecko, Torchic, Mudkip, and Salamence. The update also introduced a dynamic weather system, as well as the ability to create and save Battle Parties.
