Pokemon Go – How to Catch Articuno

by Bryan Dawson

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know that Legendary Pokemon have finally made their way into Pokemon Go. With the new Legendary Raids, lots of people have been asking how to catch Articuno in Pokemon Go. This article offers some advice to help you learn how to catch Articuno in Pokemon Go, but as always, there’s a little bit of luck involved in the process as well. It’s not easy to catch Articuno in Pokemon Go, but it’s certainly possible.

How to Catch Articuno

In order to catch Articuno, first you need to participate in a Legendary Raid where Articuno is the Raid Boss. These raids are not easy, but you have 48 hours which means there’s plenty of time to get a crew of friends together with your best Pokemon. We’ve already covered Articuno’s weaknesses so be sure to check that out so you know which Pokemon types are best to use.

At the end of a Legendary Raid, the Pokemon must be captured. Unfortunately, people are reporting that the capture rate is currently right around two percent. That’s not very high at all, which means there are going to be a lot of failures. You can increase your chances by having some Golden Razz Berries on hand, so make sure you’re stocked up before heading into the raid.

Once you have the Articuno captured, you can’t use it to defend a Gym, but you can use it to attack Gyms. In addition, the Buddy Distance for Articuno is 20km for each Candy. Be sure to check out our Pokemon Go game hub for more on Legendary Pokemon.
