[Last Chance] Pokemon Go Ho-Oh / Lugia Raid Event Now Live

Virizion has arrived in Pokemon Go, but that's not the only Legendary Pokemon you can encounter right now in Niantic's hit mobile game. The Gen 2 mascots Ho-Oh and Lugia have both returned for a special Raid weekend event, giving you another chance to capture the fan-favorite Legendaries.

Until 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET on Monday, December 23, players around the world will be able to encounter Ho-Oh and Lugia in five-star Raids. Each Legendary is part-Flying, so Rock and Electric Pokemon will prove to be effective regardless of which one you face. Water Pokemon will also be helpful against Ho-Oh, while Dark and Ghost types have an advantage over Lugia.

During the Raid weekend, you'll also still be able to encounter Virizion, Pokemon Go's newest Legendary, in five-star Raids. Virizion is the third member of the Swords of Justice trio from Pokemon Black and White and is a dual Grass/Fighting Pokemon, so you'll want to bring along Flying, Fire, Psychic, Ice, Poison, or Fairy Pokemon when challenging it. Both Ho-Oh and Lugia will be especially effective against it if you can capture one of them before they leave Raids again.

No Caption Provided

Shortly after the Raid weekend ends, Niantic will kick off Pokemon Go's annual holiday celebration. This year's event runs from December 24 to January 1. During that time, you'll be able to encounter holiday versions of Pichu, Pikachu, Raichu, and Stantler, as well as two new Gen 5 Ice Pokemon: Cubchoo and Cryogonal. You'll also have your first chance to catch a Shiny version of Snover.

In other Pokemon Go news, Niantic recently rolled out a new Buddy Adventure feature, which gives you new ways to interact with your Buddy Pokemon. Once you've fed your Buddy enough berries, it will follow you around on the game's world map. You can also raise your friendship level with your Buddy Pokemon the more you interact with it, which in turn will unlock other bonuses.

Niantic has also announced the date of Pokemon Go's January 2020 Community Day. The event takes place on Sunday, January 19, and runs from 11 AM-2 PM local time in the Northern Hemisphere and from 3 PM-6 PM local time in the Southern Hemisphere. However, the featured Pokemon for next month's event has not been revealed yet.
