April 2nd is bringing all Pokémon GO players the Eon duo they’ve been waiting for in Raid Battles. That’s right: Legendaries Latios and Latias are available today!

This Hoenn region pair might be extremely stealthy with their ability to maneuver capture, but that doesn’t mean the feat isn’t achievable. You’ll be able to encounter both Pokémon until early June — but separately, for Latios and Latias will be available in different regions at different times. Latias will appear in Raid Battles throughout Europe and Asia first, while Latios occupies North America, South America, and Africa. Then, on May 8th, the two will switch locations and will make themselves available until June 5th. That way, all of you Trainers will have an equal opportunity to add these beautiful creatures to your teams.

Remember, if you capture these highly intelligent and powerful ‘mon, you’ll have a pretty strong defense against Pyschic and Dragon-types in future battles. That’s worth putting some time into tracking down Raid Battles with them for sure.

Good luck out there, Trainers!
