First seen in Pokémon Black the trio – Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem will be one of the most powerful Pokemon in the game.
To get the Legendary Pokemon, trainers will need to participate in raids. Now, Considering the current situation of the pandemic, not a lot of people will like to step out of their houses. In that case, you can join remote raids through a Remote Raid Pass which were introduced to the game a while back.
Remote raids are regular raids but from a distance. In other words, if you have a raid pass and can see a gym with a Raid from your current location, you can tap on the gym, and you’ll get the option to join the Raid remotely.
Remote Raid Passes are available for purchase for 100 coins per pass, through the in-game shop. Players can carry three such passes at a time and need to be level 5 and above to use them.
Reshiram is a dragon pokemon and will be the most powerful Fire-type Pokemon in the game. Raids featuring Reshiram will start from May 26th and will continue till June 16th. Additionally, there will be special raid hours every Wednesday from 6:00 to 7:00 PM local time where the legendary Pokemon will appear more often.
Reshiram is the best Fire type attacker by a significant margin, almost 80% better than Entei. We never had such a good Fire type in the game!
Niantic is yet announced when the remaining two Zekrom and Kyurem will be available. However, they’ll presumably follow not too far behind. We will have more to say ones there is more information available.
Pokemon Go is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play for free with in-app purchases.
