Lake Legends Event Pokémon GO: Everything You Need to Know

From Nov. 24-30, you'll be able to battle Mesprit, Azelf and Uxie in Raids depending on your location. They're still region locked, but you can use a Remote Raid Pass to battle the ones you normally can't find in your area. Azelf will be found in the Americas, Mesprit in Asia-Pacific and Uxie in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

In addition to the Raids, Pokémon that live in lakes will appear more frequently in the wild and in eggs. These Pokémon are Psyduck, Goldeen, Magikarp, Surskit, Starly, Bidoof and Shellos. Goldeen will be featured as Shiny, as well.

Pokémon that are related to the three virtues the Lake Legend represent will also be more common. Knowledge, willpower and emotion are embodied in Abra, Machop and Ralts respectively.

There will also be some AR Mapping tasks and an event Themed Field Research to participate in during the event.

To catch the Lake trio, you'll need to best them in battle first. Luckily, they're all Psychic types so a strong Dark or Ghost type Pokémon will make quick work of them.
