Pokémon GO Mythic Blade event announced
Have you heard the sound of hooves or seen a blur gliding across the water recently? Then you might’ve caught a glimpse of the Mythical Pokémon Keldeo, the Colt Pokémon! Ordinary Form Keldeo will soon be coming to the world of Pokémon GO in a ticketed Special Research story event! But regardless of whether you have a ticket, Trainers can enjoy the appearance of other Fighting-type Pokémon alongside Keldeo’s arrival!
