Lugia Pokémon Go: Where to find?

Just like other legendary Pokemon in Pokemon Go, Luigia was available in five-star raids at one point. After it was taken out, Niantic decided to bring it back for Animation Week 2020.

Shadow Lugia has returned to Pokémon GO with a debut in Shadow Raids. Also, players will be able to encounter Shiny Shadow Lugia, if they’re lucky. Shadow Lugia will appear in five-star Shadow Raids from Saturday, 28th October at 10:00 am to Sunday, 29th October at 8:00 pm local time. Shadow Lugia is different from Apex Shadow Lugia, so trainers should definitely try to catch one during October 2023.
