Tonight: Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion Bonus Raid Hour In Pokémon GO

They're back! (Already!) If you're missing one of the Legendary Swords of Justice in Pokémon GO, now is your chance due to a weekend of special raid hours. Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday will feature bonus raid hours with a total of ten Legendaries available over the course of the current Hoopa-themed event. Yesterday, we got Regirock, Regice, and Registeel. Tonight, the trio of Virizion, Terrakion, and Cobalion will be back for the final special Raid Hour of the Mischief Unbound event in Pokémon GO. From 6 PM – 7 PM, raids will be taken over by these Legendaries that can all be encountered in their Shiny forms.
