If you want to catch every Legendary Pokémon available in Pokémon GO, the upcoming Pokémon Go Fest 2021 will be your best chance. What's more, you won't have to pay for a ticket to take part.

Niantic has announced that day two of the event (that's taking place on July 17 and 18 2021) will feature raids for every Legendary Pokémon, cycling between different ones every hour. Unfortunately, some 'Mythical Pokémon' won't show up though with Celebi, Jirachi, Mew, and Deoxys all missing from the lists that you can find below.

However, those who buy the Pokémon Go Fest Ticket will be able to at least catch one additional unreleased Pokémon (rumored to be the Mythical Meloetta). On top of that, trainers with tickets will be able to get a free bundle containing three remote raid passes and can complete free challenges to get eight more. These will be incredibly useful for anyone looking to complete their Pokédex with these Legendary raids.

How to catch every Legendary Pokémon

Pokémon Go Fest 2021's second day will feature raids for every single Legendary  Pokémon that has been featured in the game so far. Though you'll have to act fast as they'll only be available in each region for a few hours.

Remeber, to take part in a Raid you'll need a Raid Pass. You get one for free everyday, and Ninatic will be giving out free passes during Go Fest 2021 for anyone who purchases a ticket (tickets cost $4.99 / £4.99, around AU$6).
