The clouds are parting as a massive Pokémon descends from the sky—that’s right, none other than Mega Rayquaza, the Sky High Pokémon, will be making its Pokémon GO debut at Pokémon GO Fest 2023!
Trainers will be able to encounter Mega Rayquaza first at the in-person GO Fest 2023 events in London, Osaka, and New York City. Mega Rayquaza will then make its worldwide debut during Pokémon GO Fest 2023: Global!
