Pokemon GO: Can you catch Legendary Pokemon like Mewtwo, Mew, Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres?

Pokemon GO, the first Pokemon title on mobile phones, was recently released to widespread success. The game incorporates augmented reality with the addictive Pokemon formula to create a game that everyone in playing.

You can catch a ton of Pokemon in the game but what everyone is thinking right now is if we can catch any Legendary Pokemons?

Legendary Pokemon are super rare or one of a kind Pokemon that take center stage in the games and shows. Developer Niantic showed off players going after Mewtwo in the first Pokemon GO trailer but so far no one has been able to catch one in the final release.

The answer to why is simple, they’re not in the game yet. Developer Niantic will most like make Legendary Pokemon parts of events or spawn them manually, which makes sense right? They’re supposed to be super rare and catching them should be an amazing feat.

I’m betting on the first Legendary event coming very soon as the developers first get a hold of the server issues plaguing the game. In their previous game Ingress, Niantic used to hold events where players would have to go to specific locations to get items, they could easily do something similar with Pokemon GO.

As for the Legendary Pokmeon coming to Pokemon GO first, my bet is the Kanto Legendaries since the game is seemingly focused on the first generation a lot. So get ready to catch Mew, Mewtwo, Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres in Pokemon GO soon.

Which Legendary are you most looking forward to catching in Pokemon GO? Let us know in the comments.

Pokemon GO is available now on Android and iOS.
