Pokemon GO is constantly updating with new creatures, challenges, and events to keep its enormous player base interested. As the game celebrates its sixth anniversary this month, there will be plenty of fun surprises throughout its most iconic gameplay element.

Raids are a common and important part of most massively multiplayer games. Countless challengers can band together to take on a powerful foe in search of great rewards. The game constantly changes its available raid bosses, but sometimes a big event dominates the system. The sixth anniversary brings several new surprises to July's raids.

Pokemon GO loves to celebrate its birthday with the return of some big names to the game. This anniversary is no different, as its five-star raids reintroduce a few beloved old favorites to the game's lineup.

The big story for July comes in the game's Five-Star Raids, which will feature a new figure each week. This month features the three legendary birds of the franchise's first generation.

From July 1-7, the ice bird Articuno will be the Five-Star Raid boss. During that period, the electric beast Zapdos takes the role. From July 14-22, the Flame Pokemon Moltres will finish out the trio. These classic legendaries make their triumphant return for a limited time.

During the final week of July 22-31, Generation IV legendary Dialga will become the Five-Star Raid boss. After the three legendary birds, players can scoop up the Temporal Pokemon.

Mega Raids also feature some exciting returns and powerful Pokemon. From July 1-7, Mega Charizard X will be the boss, while it will be replaced by Mega Charizard Y from July 7-14. Both are extremely powerful and players should try to get them if they haven't.

From July 14-22, players can get Mega Pigeot in the Mega Raids. Finally, from July 22-31, Mega Gengar will be available.

Outside of those giant events, there are a few special appearances in the One and Three-Star Raids. Three-Star Raids feature Metagross, Tyranitar, Venasaur and Blastoise. This event also has the coveted Party Hat Charizard, which is only available during anniversary events.

One-Star Raids feature Dratini, Unknown E, and Pansear. These Raids also have an anniversary treat, in the form of Pikachu wearing a cake on his head.
