Pokemon GO: Galarian Articuno, Moltres & Zapdos Confirmed

The latest Pokemon GO update has confirmed that the Galarian versions of the Legendary Birds, Articuno, Moltres, and Zapdos – are coming soon!

Some of the most sought-after Pokemon in all of Pokemon GO are Legendaries. Excitingly, it looks like new versions of classic ones are on the way.

The Legendary Birds – Articuno, Moltres, and Zapdos – first appeared in the Gen 1 mainline Pokemon games. They were also some of the first out of all of the Legendary Pokemon in Pokemon GO to debut in Niantic’s mobile game.

However, more recently, regional variants of these Legendary Pokemon appeared in Sword and Shield’s Galar region.

Luckily, it looks like Articuno, Moltres, and Zapdos’ Galarian forms will be arriving in Pokemon GO very shortly.
