Breaking the usual trend of releasing new legendary Pokémon through Raids or Research Breakthrough tasks, Pokémon GO has now added three new legendary monsters which can all be found in the wild.

If your 'Who's That Pokémon?'-style silhouette guessing skills need a little bit of work, the Pokémon teased in the image are Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf, the three lake guardian Pokémon first introduced in Pokémon Diamond & Pearl.

If you're lucky, you'll bump into one of these three legendary critters on your travels, without the need to take part in any special events. As Serebii reports, however, the encounters appear to be pretty rare and each one seems to be tied to a particular region. Azelf is reportedly only spawning across the Americas, Mesprit is popping up in Europe, and Uxie has only been found in Japan. Serebii also notes that the three Pokémon seem to spawn near bodies of water, which would make sense given the lore surrounding them.

Are you still on a quest to catch 'em all in Pokémon GO? Think you'll bump into your region's legendary? As ever, let us know down below.
