Pokémon GO news (May 3): Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf / Pokémon GO Fest Dortmund

Today’s Pokémon GO news: Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf Raids, details about the GO Fest event in Dortmund, and recap for the Sentosa Safari Zone event!

Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf – Raids

Niantic have announced that Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf, who recently started appearing in Pokémon GO, are now going to also appear in Raid Battles (making it much easier to get them). However, they still appear exclusively in their respective region (though they may eventually switch regions, like previous regional Pokémon before them)!

Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf will appear in Raid Battles until:

  • Europe: May 27th (10PM)
  • UK: May 27th (9PM)
  • North America (ET): May 27th (4PM)
  • North America (PT): May 27th (1PM)
  • Japan: May 28th (5AM)

And here’s additional details about this event:

  • Asia-Pacific: Uxie will be available to challenge in raids
  • Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India: Mesprit will be available to challenge in raids
  • The Americas and Greenland: Azelf will be available to challenge in raids
  • If you’re extraordinarily lucky, you may encounter these extremely rare Legendary Pokémon in the wild in their different regions, even after the event!
