Regirock, Registeel, and Regice are coming to Pokemon Go for a series of weekend raids in December. Here’s when you can find them.

December 2020 is a jam-packed month for Pokemon Go fans. As well as a Kalos celebration event, there’s a weekend-long Community Day that features 22 Pokemon and a rare chance to catch the Mythical Shiny Celebi.

Niantic have now announced another exciting feature for December: Spanning across three weekends, trainers will be able to catch the Legendary titans Regirock, Registeel, and Regice during a series of weekend raids.
