For those wondering when the rest of the Gen 1 Legendary Birds were coming to Pokémon GO, wonder no longer. Niantic announced that both Moltres and Zapdos will be available to catch in Legendary Raids.
These Legendary Pokémon will only be available for a limited time, so you will need to use every opportunity to go out and catch them. The Pokémon GO Twitter account tweeted out the dates that these Legendary Birds will be available.

With Articuno ending on the 31st, you only have a few more days to catch him. It is unclear if Lugia will be leaving as well to make room for Ho-Oh. No official word has been put out, but we can assume until we hear otherwise, Lugia will be around when Moltres and Zapdos start appearing. If you’re having trouble beating any of these Legendary birds, don’t worry, because we have a handy guide that will tell you which Pokémon are best against each Legendary bird.
Do you have plans to dust off the old mobile phone to try and catch Moltres and Zapdos?
