Based on the efforts of the Trainers at the event, Lugia was revealed as the first Legendary Pokémon to appear in Pokémon GO. In addition, since Team Mystic captured the most Pokémon during the event, Articuno joined Lugia in Raid Battles immediately upon completing the challenge.
There were numerous networking and connectivity issues present, during the event. Many Trainers could not log into their accounts during the event. The game's CEO, John Hanke, was booed on stage for the frustration. Because of these issues, all attendees were refunded their admission cost, received $100 in Shop credit and given a free Lugia.
