Earlier this morning we wrote about two Pokemon GO fans who claimed they had finally captured something magical: the mythical, legendary flying Articuno.
Now it could all be fake, a glitch, or something in between. But in the interim, the trainers have streamed some footage of the Pokemon, as well as an email from Niantic.
In the livestream, the Coneys start by showing off Articuno, its moves, as well as an alleged email from Niantic gifting them the Pokemon.
It's difficult to take it all without a mountain of salt. Pokemon GO fever is rampant enough that people are likely to try all sorts of things, from visual hacks to exploits, just to get a legendary Pokemon in their posse. It could also be one of the game's many, many bugs yet to be ironed out. Nobody knows.
But in the meantime, Articuno. I'd rather have a Zapdos (Team Instinct represent, after all), but each to their own.
