That's not a coincidence, and now legendary Pokémon are coming with it.Read More

Then, you probably want to throw an Ultra Ball for your best chance—except, in the original Pokémon games, that's not really how things worked, and things you thought you knew were just as much a placebo effect as holding down a specific button ... which means you're probably going to keep right on doing it.Read More
