‘Pokémon GO’ raids guide: Catch Therian and Incarnate Formes of Legendary Pokémon during five-star raids next month
With a new month starting next week, “Pokémon GO” players should prepare themselves with an all-new schedule of highly rewarding raids throughout March. Five-star raids will still be good opportunities to catch Legendary Pokémon, but next month is going to be extra special with the appearance of Therian and Incarnate Formes.
‘Pokémon GO’ tips: When are the five-star raids happening in March
What makes the “Pokémon GO” events in March extra special is that they are part of the Season of Legends festivities that will run through June 1 worldwide. And one of the biggest highlights of this season is the arrival of Therian and Incarnate Formes of Legendary Pokémon to the mobile game.
The Incarnate Forme Landorus will be the first Legendary face to appear in five-star raids starting on March 1, at 8 a.m. to March 6, at 8 a.m. “Pokémon GO” trainers will have a chance to catch the Incarnate Forme Tornadus from March 6, at 8 a.m., to March 11, at 8 a.m. The next appearance will be of the Incarnate Forme Thundurus from March 11, at 8 a.m., to March 16, at 10 a.m. Players should keep an eye for a Shiny Pokémon throughout these events.
Five-star raids that will run from March 16, at 10 a.m. to March 30, at 10 a.m. will feature the Therian Forme Thundurus. “Pokémon GO” will close the month strong with the appearance of the Therian Forme Tornadus in five-star raids on March 30, at 10 a.m. Trainers should note that these schedules will be based on their local timezones.
Niantic chastises millions of ‘Pokémon GO’ cheaters
In any online game, the presence of hackers and cheaters is one certain way to spoil the fun. Niantic Labs might not be discussing its anti-cheating efforts often, but the developer recently assured “Pokémon GO” players that it has also accomplished many things in this department.
In a blog post on Tuesday, Niantic revealed it served “punishments” to more than five million cheaters since the start of 2021. That number applies to its games “Pokémon GO” and “Harry Potter: Wizards Unite,” and “Ingress.” The developer did not specify the different forms of sanctions it dished out but confirmed that more than 20% of those were permanent bans.
