Pokémon GO is approaching its 4th anniversary and there is no better way to celebrate than by adding lots of content. Niantic tweaks the details to kick off the festivities and has just unveiled what the title players will find in July and highlights the presentation of the Pokémon Frontier and the possible return of Team GO Rocket.

In previous weeks the powerful legendary dragons Reshiram and Zekrom were added to the game, it had been anticipated that Kyurem would also come very soon and the time is yet to come. Niantic reported that players will soon be able to find this Dragon and Ice-type Pokémon on the 5-Star Raids, from July 7 at 3:00 PM (Mexico City time). In addition, every Wednesday that is available it will appear as a featured Pokémon in the Raid Hours (6:00 PM, local time).

In case you missed it: This veteran trainer plays Pokémon GO on 64 phones.

There will be many Pokémon in the featured hours

Featured Pokemon will appear every Tuesday at 6:00 PM (local time). During this period a creature will appear more frequently and apart from that the player can receive bonuses. Then we leave you the calendar with the featured Pokémon and the bonuses.

Tuesday, July 7 – Taillow with a double bonus of Candy for transferring Pokémon.
Tuesday July 14 – Zubat with double the experience bonus for evolving Pokémon.
Tuesday, July 21 – Oddish with double Star Dust points for catching Pokémon.
Tuesday, July 28 – Buizel with double the experience points bonus for catching Pokémon.

On the other hand, in the field investigations the players will be able to find the Pokémon Rock Skin Larvitar, which will be available as a reward from Wednesday, July 1 to Saturday, August 1. If you are lucky you can even find a shiny or varicoloured Larvitar.

Team GO Rocket is up to something

Professor Willow and team leader Wisdom Blanche have something very important to report about Team GO Rocket. As we mentioned, the recruits of this organization apparently suspended their plans weeks ago, but it seems that soon they could cause problems again.

This is believed by Professor Willow, after Blanche found some mysterious sketches indicating that the team is planning something. Also, this seems to be related to an image where you can see the organization’s balloon when the solstice was held while the Clefairy were playing. There are reportedly several recruits at the scene acting very mysteriously.
