Pokémon Go's has released a brand new legendary Pokémon for players to fight in legendary raids—Moltres.

Moltres arrival in Pokémon Go signals the end of Articuno, one of the two legendary Pokémon released on July 22 after the failed Pokémon Go fest in Chicago. There is currently no news from Niantic on when we can expect to see Articuno in the game again—or even if the Pokémon will return at all.

Players looking to add Moltres to their roster before it becomes unavailable on Aug. 7 will need to stock up on strong water-type Pokémon, such as Vaporeon, in order to take it down. Don't go against it alone, either. Niantic advises at least a group of 15 players to take on these super powerful Pokémon during a raid.

Once a team beat a legendary Pokémon in a raid, players will be given a small amount of Pokéballs to try and catch it. If you fail, you will need to try to find another legendary raid to challenge Moltres again—and try all over again.

After Aug. 7, Moltres will be replaced by Zapdos. Zapdos will only be available till Aug. 14 with no new legendary Pokémon expected to be released for sometime after that. Players will still be able to catch Lugia, however, who currently has no end time.
