Originally, the Pokémon Go community was to have the opportunity to catch the legendary Pokémon Ho-oh until December 12th. According to a recent announcement by Niantic, the event is expected to be extended.
Just a few days ago, the worldwide “Pokémon Go” community managed to catch three billion Pokémon as part of the current International Catching Competition.
Thus, the players unlocked all goals and thus also rewards of the community event. Among them was the opportunity to catch the legendary Firebird Ho-oh. Originally, it should be possible until December 12 to secure Ho-oh.
Pokémon Go: Niantic will extend the Ho-oh event
It seems that the event will be extended. This suggests at least a message from the customer service of Niantic, which appeared in the form of a screenshot on the online platform Reddit. It reveals that the technical problems of the past few days will cause the Ho-oh event to be extended.
Further details on this topic will be provided by the responsible persons of Niantic according to the customer service shortly. In recent days, a significant number of users complained about technical problems that meant they could not join the raid or hunt for Ho-oh.
