Throughout the year, Pokemon GO receives new Pokemon and legendaries. These Pokemon usually join the game's roster in a very public way: during an event or in-game celebration. Recently, Niantic added a new feature called Adventure Incense. Some players have reported encounters with legendary Galarian birds!
How to Catch Galarian Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno in Pokemon GO
Adventure Incense is only available to gamers who have already used the Galarian legendary birds (Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno). Adventure Incense works a bit differently than the usual Adventure Incense that players may have encountered. Each day, players will receive one free Adventure Incense that they may use.
The Incense will be lasting for 15 minutes once activated. Pokemon will not be spawned in the player's area, and there is a very low probability for one of the legendary birds to spawn. They are very rare birds, as they often flee after the first ball is thrown.
Can Galarian Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno be shiny in Pokemon GO?
Galarian Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno are unfortunately not shiny at the moment. It is highly probable that their shiny versions will be added at a later date. Niantic often features legendary Pokemon in events and celebrations, so players should keep an eye out for these legendaries in the in-game news tab.
