A new week, a few new changes in Pokémon GO. Yes, while we’re still digesting the game’s latest update (Mega Evolution!), that doesn’t mean Niantic isn’t keeping up its weekly updates. Let’s see what changes are taking place!
CRESSELIA: THE LUNAR POKÉMON
Goodbye, Heatran! The Lava Dome Legendary Pokémon has fled Pokémon GO and in its place is Cresselia. You’ll be able to encounter this Lunar Legendary beginning on Thursday, September 10th, at 1 p.m. PT until it flies away next week on Friday, September 18th, at 1 p.m. PT.
Cresselia is now available in five-star raids until September 18 at 1 p.m. PDT! Remember to play responsibly and to use a Remote Raid Pass when necessary. pic.twitter.com/twTwLdwNtb

Missing Cresselia in your Pokédex? Don’t fret, as Niantic has added a special gift box inside Pokémon GO’s in-game store. For 1 PokéCoin, you can acquire three Remote Raid Passes. Now just wait for the right time and join a Legendary Raid via nearby and/or an invite from friends!
POKÉSTOP SCAN UPDATE
Niantic has reduced the Trainer Level requirement to us the PokéStop Scan feature. The announcement was made in May’s “Limited release of Reality Blending and PokéStop scanning coming to AR functionality in select phones” blog post by adding the following update at the top:
“The opt-in PokéStop Scan feature is now available to level 20 Trainers and up. We look forward to seeing more Trainers help us on our mission to create a map of the world for all to explore!”
Taking part in the PokéStop Scan feature doesn’t give you any in-game bonuses. To read up on what PokéStop Scanning is, you can see Niantic’s breakdown and step-by-step “How to” guide on its Niantic Support page.
Good luck catching Cresselia, fellow Pokémon Trainers! Remember, please play responsibly when traversing the world of Pokémon GO!
