Pokemon GO players have a chance to capture two rare birds, Lugia and Articuno. Some players attempting these raids are finding that adding legendaries to their compendium is a tough prospect, partially because of Niantic’s design, and partially due to good ‘ol network issues.
When news broke that a couple from Ohio suddenly had a legendary Pokemon yesterday, the most common response from other players was that something fishy was going on. Today, Niantic confirmed the shenanigans, and says it has rectified the situation.
It might be in the running for “most ridiculous Pokémon yet.”
