Pokmon Go players are well aware of the slight chance a captured Pokmon will transform into a Ditto, but for it to lose all skeletal structure and become a nightmare creature is something new. Strangely, this new fear has been instilled through the recent release of the Legendary Pokmon Lugia and Articuno.

Japanese trainer sumika920 shared screenshots of an encounter with level five Raid boss Lugia, which is intimidating enough on its own, but add in a glitched version, with a snake-like head and wings that seem disconnected from its body, and it loses all exalted status.

While the response to the glitch has been humorous and dramatic, the real problem is it also seems to significantly affect the ability to capture the Legendary birds. With both Articuno and Lugia repping a 2 percent catch rate already, the fear of running into a demon version will just be another indication that Legendary in Pokmon Go should stand for impossible.

Both birds were added to the game immediately after the disastrous downfall of Niantics Pokmon Go Fest, which plagued Chicago attendees with poor server and cell service, forcing the company to shut down the event and refund players. As scary as the glitch versions are, trainers should attempt to capture as many as they can find, as Niantic also recently announced Articuno will be leaving Raids soon to make way for Moltres and Zapdos down the line.

Cant believe they now bring out all these amazing updates, and new pokemon, while the game is now dead asf lmao. I know the game is still popular but no where near as popular as when the game first got released. They should have brought these updates out when the game was kicking off, great shame really as I did enjoy aying Pokemon Go, I use to play it everyday like 5 hours a day lol even playing it while being at work, as I had a pokestop right at my work lol, so used to just sit at pokestop with a lure on and use my eggs and level up so quick. Was great fun but got bored of seeing the same pokemon over and over again, so wish they brought all the new content out before. But anyway I really cant imagine how hard it would be to even find one of these Legendary Pokemons, let alone catch them lmao. But hell I might have to start playing a little more and see what all the fuss is about, but now that im driving I dont see myself playing that much, and I dont really fancy leaving the house just to play Pokmon Go lol.
