Pokémon Go announced that the Iron Will Pokémon Cobalion is arriving to five-star raids next week. This Steel-type and Fighting-type Legendary Pokémon is said to come with a heart and body of steel. This means you should bring your best Fire-type, Fighting-type, and Ground-type Pokémon.

Cobalion arrives starting on November 4, and is available until November 26.

For those not familiar, Cobalion is part of a trio of Pokémon that has been said to challenge humans with the goal of protecting other Pokémon. These three are rarely seen apart, so players can look forward to meeting the other two soon. Before that happens, players can build up their teams to prepare for the battle.

Reunited and Returns to Raids

While waiting for Cobalion, you can take your time fighting against Regirock, Regice, and Registeel. Hopefully this can fill your Pokédex. If you think you're not up to the task, don't worry since you can find Pokémon you need to counter them in the wild, and even in Eggs.

The three Regis are available starting today, November 1 at 3:00 PM EDT and will last until November 4 at 4:00 PM EDT.
