Pokemon Go fans can expect Legendary Pokemon in July
Recent reports have suggested that Niantic is planning a huge summer event in July.
Niantic’s Asian General Manager Yoshiji Kawashima hasn't confirmed the release of Legendary Pokemon, but did say that new features would be implemented.
"I hope you are looking forward to this huge event this summer," he said.
"Please look forward to it. Engineers are working hard now so that new functions can be implemented."
It's believed that Raids will accompany the release of Legendary Pokemon, as fans band together to capture the likes of Zapdos, Articuno and Moltres.
Interestingly, Raids were referenced in early Pokemon Go promotional material, with New York players alerted that one was starting nearby.

A study carried out by the University of Wisconsin has shown that Pokemon Go makes players lead positive and satisfactory lives.
Fans are often exercising when playing the app, and are experiencing positive emotions linked with feelings of nostalgia.
"For the most part, the Pokemon Go players said more about positive things that were making them feel their life was more worthwhile, more satisfactory, and making them more resilient," explained researcher James Alex Bonus.
"The more people were playing, the more they were engaging in behaviours that reflected making new connections – making Facebook friends, introducing themselves to someone new, exchanging phone numbers with someone, or spending more time with old friends and learning new things about them," he added.
Bonus suggested that more organisations should look to this medium as a way of improving life experiences.
