Pokemon Go: New Legendary Pokemon Now Available

Terrakion makes its debut in Raids.


Pokemon Go's Supereffective Week is over, but Niantic still has a few other events lined up for the hit Pokemon mobile game this month. Before the first-ever Friend Fest kicks off tomorrow, November 27, a new Legendary Pokemon is making its debut in Raid Battles: Terrakion.

Like Cobalion, Terrakion is part of the Swords of Justice trio from the series' Gen 5 games, Pokemon Black and White. The Legendary Pokemon will begin appearing in five-star Raids today at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET, and it will be available until December 17. As usual, you'll first need to team up with other players in-person to battle Terrakion before you can catch it.

Like the other Swords of Justice, Terrakion has two types, in this case Fighting and Rock. That makes it vulnerable to Grass, Ground, Water, Psychic, Steel, Fairy, and other Fighting Pokemon, so you'll want to bring along monsters of those types like Rhyperior, Gardevoir, and Machamp for your best chance to defeat it.

As previously mentioned, the Friend Fest also kicks off this week. That event runs until December 2, and during that time, "family-themed Pokemon" such as Nidoran and their evolutions will appear more often in the wild. Additionally, Pokemon trades will require half the usual amount of Stardust, and you'll be able to make two special trades per day. You can read more details on the official Pokemon Go website.

Shortly after the Friend Fest wraps up, Niantic will hold Pokemon Go's December Community Day. Like last year, the developer is doing something a little different for next month's event. Rather than taking place on a single day, December's Community Day will occur on two days--December 14 and 15--and will give you another chance to catch all of the featured Pokemon from previous Community Days.
