The next legendary Pokémon has begun appearing in Pokémon Go, but you’ll only be able to catch him for a limited time. Players will be able to battle and catch Team Valor’s mascot, Moltres.

Where can I find it?

Similar to the last two legendaries, you’ll only be able to find Moltres in Raid Battles. Players will have to team up to take down the fire type. Once they successfully defeat it, players will then have the chance to capture it.

If you’re hoping to add Moltres to your lineup, you’ll have to act fast. The legendary Pokémon is only available until August 7th. The next legendary is Zapdos, who will appear in Raid Battles the 7th through the 14th. Ho-oh is also expected to arrive, although Niantic hasn’t confirmed when.

Safari Zone live events that were scheduled in Europe were postponed, after the mess of Pokémon Go Fest in Chicago last month. While Niantic has apologized and issued refunds to attendees, some are still filing lawsuits for travel reimbursements.
