Pokemon Go players are in for yet another opportunity to capture a new Mythical Pokemon. Earlier today, Pokemon Go's tweet mentioned, "Something Mythical is coming, Trainers," which shows a set of Pokemon footsteps printed on the mud.
What Makes it Genesect?
It looks similar and about 110% sure that it looks a lot like Genesect would leave behind if he were in the game.
Genesect is a Generation 5 Mythical Pokemon that has triangular-shaped feet.
Back in the Pokemon GO March Events announcement, Niantic has hinted that a mysterious weekend event is coming over the dates of Mar. 20 to 23. As we get closer to the said dates, it's only right that the hype is starting already, and Genesect is something you'd like to get for yourself for sure. During the event dates, Normal-, Fire-, Water-, Electric-, and Ice-type Pokemon will appear more often than others in the wild.
Now then, Genesect's signature Techno Blast is an excellent skill to have to fight all these Pokemon for sure. Techno Blat is a Normal-type move that can change its type depending on which item Genesect is holding. For example, here is a quick overview.

What does it do?
When it is not holding any Drive, the light is orange, and the skill Techno Blast is just the Normal-type. When a Burn Drive is equipped, the light turns red, and the ability Techno Blast is now a Fire-type. When Douse Drive is equipped, the light turns blue, and Techno Blast turns to Water-type. If Shock Dive is held, the light turns yellow, and the skill becomes to Electric-type. Lastly, if you equip Chill Drive, the light turns white, and the skill Techno Blast turned into an Ice-type.
One-star to four-star Raid Battles are going to be featured all throughout the event, which will be Bug- or Steel-type Pokemon, which are, of course, both Genesect's types in the game. So this is a no-brainer.
Something to add, Niantic has teased that the mysterious weekend event will be joined with a brand-new Special Research story event. Which pretty much sounded like a Genesect discovery storyline, don't you agree? We will keep you posted as we learn more about this and Mar. 20 is drawing closer, so there are more leaks for sure until the event comes out!
