Niantic has announced the Legendary Pokémon that will be in Pokémon Go raids for the next two months: Cresselia, Kyogre, and Groudon.

Cresselia will grace raids from May 27 at 4 p.m. ET until June 18 at 4 p.m. ET.

Kyogre will be around from June 18 at 4 p.m. ET until June 27 at 4 p.m. ET.

Groudon will take its place on June 27 at 4 p.m. ET until July 10 at 4 p.m. ET.

All three of these Legendaries have been featured in tier five raids in the past, but they’re making a return for a couple weeks each during the summer. All three of the Pokémon will have a chance to appear Shiny. The Shiny rate for these Legendaries should be about one in 19.

Kyogre and Groudon are very good water- and ground-type attackers, respectively. Unfortunately, Cresselia is more of a Pokédex filler and doesn’t fair super well as an attacker. Nonetheless, if you missed these ‘mons before, or if you just want to try and grab their Shiny versions, now is your chance.
