UPDATE: Pokemon Go fans are now able to capture Mewtwo in Japan.
Mewtwo is now available as a Raid boss in Japan, as part of the Oikachu Outbreak stadium event that’s taking place today.
It’s unclear if Mewtwo will replace Zapdos for UK fans, so stay tuned for an update from Niantic.
ORIGINAL: The new Pokemon Go event live stream has kicked off for the Yokohama Stadium Pocket Monster bash.
While details of what will happen during the event have not been provided, we do know when Trainers can start tuning in.
The Pokemon Go Stadium event live stream began at around 8am UK time, although it’s unlikely to have an English option.
You can find it on the official Facebook page – or by using the embed below – with the show now live to view.
The event live stream begins two hours before everything goes live officially in Yokohama, Japan, with a parade the main focus of the coverage so far.
The first two hours will reportedly be dedicated to the recent Outbreak event in Japan, with footage being shown on what’s been going down.
It appears that the event will include a special Raid, with fans hoping we could see another Legendary Pokemon launch.
That would fit in nicely with the end of the Zapdos run, and could see a Pocket Monster like Ho-Oh take its place.
Here’s some of the information about the Stadium event fromt the official site: “Pokemon Go STADIUM is a Pokemon GO event that will be held at Yokohama Stadium on Monday, August 14.
“In order to participate in this event, you will need a smartphone that can play Pokémon GO as well as a Pokemon GO account with a Trainer Level of 5 or higher.
“The event is scheduled to run about once every 15 minutes, with tickets valid for one program only.”
The event is free to attend but and will run until 9pm, local time.
Pokemon Go fans only have a few hours left to capture Zapdos as part of this week’s Legendary Raid.
The Zapdos Legendary Raid has an official end date of August 14 in North America.
And the good news for UK fans is that based on previous weeks, the Pokemon Go Legendary Zapdos Raid is likely to run up until 1am BST on August 15.
But what happens after the August 14/15 end time is still very much up in the air.
Based on comments made by Niantic earlier this summer, some fans believe either Mewtwo or Ho-Oh may appear next.
“Lugia, Articuno, Moltres, and Zapdos have been spotted in Pokemon Go!” reads a Niantic statement.
“Have you battled one of these Legendary Pokemon yet? From August 7–14, Zapdos, the Legendary Pokemon that represents Team Instinct, will appear at Raid Battles in the real world.
“Team up with your fellow Trainers and line up your Pokemon carefully when battling these extremely powerful and rare Legendary Pokemon. Good luck, Trainer. Be prepared for more legendary adventures!”
