I’m not the biggest Pokemon Go fan, though I did play it when it first came out (alongside everyone else), but I do appreciate the game for what it is. I like that it gets people out of the house and interacting with nature, at least in a virtual sense.
One thing that always bugged me though was how the legendary Pokemon were never anywhere to be found. Mew, Mewto, Articuno, Moltres, and Zapdos were never to be found. At least, until now.
In speaking with Wired’s German site, Niantic’s CEO, John Hanke, confirmed that not only have they not forgotten about these seemingly MIA critters, there is a plan in place, saying, “I can safely say we’ll see more of it this year.”
He neglected to say how these stragglers might come about, whether by some event, some random, hard-to-reach location, etc.
For the rest of the article, he addresses players that cheat at the game and says how they’re missing most of the fun that the game offers.
If you’ve stuck with the game since its inception or have just rebounded back to it recently with the new wave of Poke-critters being added, this news should be exciting.
