Between 1st to 4th November, Regirock, Regice, and Registeel are reuniting in Pokémon GO. If you haven't already caught these legendaries, the returning raids will give you another chance to add the formidable forces of nature to your Pokédex.
The colossal pocket monster Regigigas will also be appearing in EX Raids in the same month. As part of this, Niantic is offering tickets you can buy with real money, to participate in a special story event called "A Colossal Discovery". This event will allow you to encounter the legendary Pokémon before its debut later on in November, in a special first-time appearance in GO.
You can find out more, including how to complete the premium quest 'A Colossal Discovery' in our full guide. Below are the full details from Niantic's press release:
