A Legendary Trio is a constant theme in every region in the Pokémon series. The first Legendary Trio to be introduced is the Legendary Birds of Generation I Moltres, Articuno, and Zapdos.

This is followed by the Legendary Beasts Suicune, Raikou, and Entei. Every region has their own version of the Legendary Trio with their own distinct concepts.

Sinnoh has its own trio as well: the Legendary Lake Guardians. This includes Azelf, Uxie, and Mesprit. These are powerful Psychic-type Legendaries who reside in their respective lake caverns.

This article will focus on Mesprit, the bringer of emotion, and how you can catch it in Pokémon GO.

Excited? Let's go!


What is a Mesprit?

Mesprit is a cute fairy-like Pokémon with two tails and four long drooping appendages on the sides of its head.

It has quite a balanced base stat line with a respectable 105 in Attack, Defense, Sp. Atk, and Sp. Def., but is quite slow compared to its counterparts with 80 Speed. Regardless, it is still a strong Pokémon that could greatly boost your Pokémon GO team.

If you are familiar with the mainline Pokémon games, especially Diamond and Pearl, you would know that it is especially hard to catch Mesprit. To catch it in Pokémon D&P, you must run around the entire map chasing it as it moves from one location to another.

The struggle doesn't end there, once you finally get to encounter it, Mesprit still has the tendency to flee from the battle and disappear again to another location.

This is one of the most tricky catches in the mainline games, if not the most. Luckily, you wouldn't be experiencing the same fate in Pokémon GO.

Mesprit Location: How to Obtain a Mesprit in Pokémon GO

As mentioned earlier, you wouldn't be going on the same wild goose chase around the entire world trying to look for Mesprit in Pokémon GO. Instead, it will be the traditional way of encountering Pokémon in Pokémon GO: in the wild and in Raid Battles.

The Legendary Lake Pokémon are regionally-exclusive Pokémon that can only be found in their respective regions. This is similar to the concept of them having their own lakes.

Mesprit can only be caught in Europe, Middle East, Africa, and India. Raid Battles are also another way of catching Mesprit in Pokémon GO, which we will be tackling later on.

We also found a tweet posted on Twitter that claimed to have found Mesprit in a certain location. User @Shankha_Deep17 claimed to have found Mesprit at these coordinates:

51.506558, -0.086790

If you are curious, you are free to try and check it out yourself or use a device GPS changer to change the GPS of your device. See if you can find Mesprit there and catch it right away.

How to Beat Mesprit

The Lake Guardians can also be encountered during Events, where you may have the chance to catch them through five-star Raid Battles.

A Raid Battle is already quite tough to beat, while a five-star Raid Battle is on another level. Don't worry, we have a few tips on how you can beat the bringer of emotion.

The most fundamental fighting strategy in Pokémon GO is type advantages. Type advantages will grant additional damage to your attacks while reducing incoming damage as well.

As a Psychic-type, Mesprit is weak against Ghost, Bug, and Dark-type moves. Having Pokémon with the said types of moves will be quite helpful in the raid battle since they do 20%greater damage.

Here are a few recommended Pokémon you can add to your team against Mesprit:

  1. Scizor
  2. Gengar
  3. Pinsir
  4. Tyranitar
  5. Yanmega
  6. Darkrai
  7. Chandelure

Mesprit may be a Psychic-type with Psychic-type moves, but you have to be aware of Blizzard, which has an Ice-type move in its moveset. Blizzard also has a 41,887 CP when you face it in a Raid Battle and 1,747 CP once caught.

Wrapping Up

Mesprit is generally hard to catch since it is a Legendary Pokémon. But on the bright side, you don't have to run around the map trying to chase it as it flees, just like in the mainline games. In Pokémon GO, you simply encounter it in the wild or battle one in Raid Battles during certain events.

If you want to beat it in a Raid Battle, bringing the right Pokémon with you is important. Ghost, Bug, and Dark-type Pokémon are recommended against Mesprit, while other types are still fine as long as they have moves with the aforementioned types.
