How to get Galarian Moltres, Zapdos and Articuno in Pokémon GO

Pokémon GO is constantly getting new Pokémon and Legendary characters throughout the year. These Pokémon are usually added to the play roster very publicly, during an event or in-game celebration. Niantic recently added a new feature called Adventure Incense. Due to this new item, some players have reported sightings of the legendary Galarian birds!

How to catch Galarian Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno in Pokémon GO

At the time of writing, players could only catch the legendary Galarian birds (Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno) with Adventure Incense. Adventure Incense works a little differently than the Classic Incense that players are used to. Every day, players will receive one free adventure incense that they can use. Once activated, Incense will last only 15 minutes. Players need to walk around their territory for Pokémon to spawn, and the chance of one of the legendary birds spawning is very low. These legendary birds have an extremely low catch rate. Players will be lucky if they catch one ball at all, as they often run away after the first ball is thrown.

Can Galarian Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno be shiny in Pokémon GO?

Unfortunately, at the moment Galarian Moltres, Zapdos and Articuno can’t be shiny. It is likely that their shiny versions will be added later. Niantic frequently features Legendary Pokémon at events and celebrations, so players should ensure that these Legendary Pokémon do not appear in the in-game news tab.
