How does this work?
You need to collect "Legendary Feathers", their locations are being announced by the "Team Leaders". Each team will have a sort of virtual leader per-se. Once you have collected the said feathers, you need to approach a Pokemon Go gym dominated by your team color. Once in, a Pokemon Go Legendary Bird will land on that gym. Unfortunately, as per update, these birds cannot be caught, not yet. However, if you win a battle against one of them, you will receive a new type of ball named after your team; Team Valor Ball, Team Mystic Ball, Team Instinct Ball. These team balls offer 100% catch rate for Legendary Pokemons, details on Legendary Bird sighting is yet to be confirmed. By the way, you can only own one Legendary Bird based on your team color.

But wait, there's more... Pokemon Go trios!
According to Bulbapedia: "Being the first Legendary trio, they set the standards for future trios; that is, they all share similar attributes and-in the case of most of the future trios-are considered equal among themselves." Based on that statement, there's a huge probability that other trios will be introduced to Pokemon Go. After all, Niantic has to maintain the game's hype considering the millions of downloads this app has had in over a span of months.
