Niantic hints that Legendary Pokemon will come to Pokemon Go this summer

Pikachu and Mewtwo from "Pokemon GO". Niantic picked up five Webby awards this year, winning not only Best Mobile Sites & Apps - Games, but also Experimental & Innovation and Best Use of Global Positioning System or Location Technology, the latter two being both the Webby picks and the People's choice. Bhargava's speech - "This summer will be legendary" - leaves little room for the imagination; it looks like we'll finally get these powerful beasts this year.

An executive at Pokemon GO developer Niantic teases a "legendary" summer for the game. Still, even with events and Gen 2 there's not a lot for endgame players to enjoy with Pokemon Go right now.

Pokemon GO is now available on iOS and Android devices.

But while there have been reports of new events being launched in the coming months that would help release the original Legendary Pokemon in the game, fans got their biggest hint today.

Video game stories from other sites on the web. ComicBook also notes that Niantic CEO John Hanke previously revealed that legendaries will be introduced via large-scale events that will require players to cooperate, much like what the trailer portrays.

The said "Pokemon Go" event will end on May 25 at 1:00 p.m. PDT. Of course, participating will likely not ensure the capture of a legendary Pokemon. Dubbed the "Adventure Week" challenge, players will have the chance to catch more Rock-type Pokemon creatures including the rare Aerodactyl, according to an announcement posted on the game's website.

But it would truly be great if legendary Pokemon will be added to the game. There should be a goal that groups of players must work towards in order to be awarded a special monster.
