Just as it seemed that players of the game were beginning to lose hope, the mobile game company’s CEO (John Hanke) finally announced that the game would be getting legendary pokemon before the end of 2017.
John had stated previously that 3 important updates would be released for the mobile game this year, so it’s safe to predict that at least one of these will be incorporating the release of the legendary Pokemon.
Also, I’m sure Niantic is has plans for something huge on the mobile game’s anniversary. We’ll just have to wait to see exactly what that surprise ends up being.
Now that summer is approaching, its the perfect time for the legendarys to start popping up just waiting to be caught. That would still leave enough time in between events for holiday themed seasonals to continue to be randomly scattered throughout the year.
We’ll likely be seeing an event for the mobile game come Easter time, of course another for Halloween, and without a doubt there will be a Christmas update as well.
