Pokemon Go developer Niantic’s CEO, John Hanke, has confirmed that they are waiting for the game to be released worldwide before any Legendary Pokemon events are introduced. A lot of fans, on the other hand, had been hoping that Legendary Pokemon would appear at SDCC yesterday. It turned out to be a false alarm.
Pokemon Go has only been released in the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and most of Europe, while the majority of the Asian, African and South American countries are still without the game. However, the game is expected to release worldwide shortly with its servers stabilizing somewhat in the recent days.
Hanke didn’t add too many details about Legendary Pokemon during the Pokemon Go presentation at SDCC, but it seems like Legendary Birds will be tied to the respective teams the player are in.
However, considering how unstable the servers have been, it doesn’t seem that the issues will be sorted out anytime soon, especially considering the game’s yet to be released worldwide.
This means one should not expect any Legendary Pokemon events to occur anytime soon and players will need to be patient as Niantic sorts out the server issues and finally rolls out the game worldwide.
