The Extraordinary Raid Week in Pokémon GO is coming to an end, but Niantic wants to close it on a high note. That is because the developer is giving trainers another incentive to join Raid Battles. Over the next coming weeks, three Legendary Pokémon are coming back to the game – the first one being the Psychic-type Cresselia.

From now on until June 18, the Legendary pocket monster will appear across the world once again in five-star Raids. This is definitely the perfect time to capture the Pokémon if players missed it the first time it was made available in December last year. Even more so, they can have the opportunity to encounter its Shiny form.

Cresselia is a pure Psychic-type Pokémon. As such, it is ideal for players to bring Bug, Dark, and Ghost-like Pokémon to defeat it. This could include, but is not limited to, Giratina, Scizor, and Tyranitar.

Following the Legendary Pokémon’s departure, next on the list is Kyogre. The Legendary Water Pokémon will also return to five-star Raids, starting from June 18 all the way to June 27. After this period, players will have another chance to capture its counterpart Groudon, who is scheduled to appear between June 27 and July 10.

As is the case with Cresselia, players will have a chance to encounter the Shiny forms of both Groudon and Kyogre. Beyond these returning Legendaries, players have the next Community Day to look forward to in Pokémon GO. The event will commence on Saturday, June 8, and the featured pocket monster this time around is Slakoth.

If players are successful in evolving one into the Pokémon’s final form, which is Slaking, it can learn an event-exclusive move before the Community Day ends. As an added bonus, Pokémon Eggs are going to hatch at a quarter of their usual distance during said event.

In related news, Niantic reportedly rolled out a new wave of Gen 4 Pokémon. These Pokémon are originally from the Diamond and Pearl versions, including Cherubi, Hippopotas, and Gible. Moreover, the studio has added a new set of Lure Modules for players to use in evolving Eevee into Glaceon and Leafeon.
