Pokémon GO Galarian Zapdos and two Galarian Moltres flee in under a minute, a stroke of bad luck resulting in a triple loss

Trainers, the Legendary Galarian birds have become some of the most sought-after Pokémon in Pokémon GO. Many players have embarked on the quest to catch these rare Pokemon, and for one lucky player, that quest led to encounters with not one, not two, but three Galarian Legendary Pokémon. However, all ran away.

Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos, and Galarian Moltres made their surprise debut in Pokémon GO in July 2022, and they are one of the rarest Pokemon to find. But beware, fellow trainers, for not only are all three of them rare spawns, but they are also notoriously difficult to catch. May the odds be ever in your favor on your hunt for these majestic creatures.

The hunt for Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos, and Galarian Moltres follows a simple principle, you must use the Daily Adventure Incense, a feature that spawns additional Pokémon outside of the current season or event-specific pool. Among these spawns, the highly desirable Galarian Legendary forms can occasionally be found. However, their appearances are exceptionally rare. If they evade capture during a single 15-minute Daily Adventure Incense session, you must patiently await the following day for another opportunity.

While on the hunt, keep moving and remain watchful for Incense spawns, hoping that one of these magnificent birds graces you with its presence.

The Pokémon GO community speculates a base catch rate of a mere 0.3% and a formidable flee rate of 90%, making these Legendary Pokémon incredibly challenging to capture.

The player we’re discussing today had not one, but three encounters with Galarian Legendary Pokémon. They crossed paths with Galarian Moltres twice and Galarian Zapdos once. Unfortunately, all three slipped through their grasp, leaving them with Pawmi and Litleo as the only Pokémon caught during that specific period.

how did this all happen within a minute!?!?!
