Legendary Week is now over in Pokemon Go, and Niantic has shared the results from the 10-day-long event. The company revealed that players managed to defeat the Legendary Pokemon Rayquaza more times than the returning Groudon and Kyogre, which means Pokemon that like windy weather will be a lot more common in the game for the next few days.

From now until March 16, Pokemon that typically spawn in windy conditions, such as Bagon, will be more likely to hatch from Eggs. In addition to that, Raid Battles will likewise feature Pokemon that prefer windy weather. Players will also receive double XP as an added bonus from now until March 16.

March 16 is a notable date for Pokemon Go players to remember, as that is also when Rayquaza will leave the game. The Legendary Dragon-type Pokemon can be encountered until then in Raid Battles at Gyms. However, time has run out to capture its fellow Gen 3 Legendaries, Groudon and Kyogre. Following their initial runs as Raid bosses, the pair returned to Raid Battles for a limited time as part of Legendary Week, but they have once again left the game with the conclusion of the event.

Niantic kicked off Legendary Week last month, on February 23. For the duration of the event, Pokemon Go players had another chance to capture Groudon and Kyogre in Raid Battles alongside Rayquaza, and the Legendary they defeated most would directly influence which kinds of Pokemon will hatch from Eggs for the next few days. If players could defeat Rayquaza more than Groudon and Kyogre combined, then Pokemon that prefer windy weather would be more likely to hatch; if they couldn't, then those that prefer sunny or rainy weather would be more likely.

Niantic has already shared details for the next Pokemon Go Community Day. The event will take place on March 25, and as before, it will feature a rare Pokemon that knows a move it cannot typically learn in the game. Niantic still hasn't revealed what the move will be, but the special Pokemon players will be able to encounter during this month's event is the Pokemon Red and Blue starter Bulbasaur.

I'm still shocked that they update this game.

It was huge and then it just died.

Glad to see they haven't given up
