Three shiny Kyogre at one raid?

First of all, let me tell ya… Mr. WhySoSalty has been quite salty about his lack of Shiny Kyogre.  (I got mine on day 1, remember?)
I’m on my way home from work yesterday and we’re discussing the T5 raid eggs that are hatching at such-and-such times. We make the plan for which 3 we are going to hit, even though they’ll have to be done fast to get all 3 in before the Kyogre’s despawn.

Raid 1.  There were maybe 15 of us there…(hard to remember exactly).

We complete the battle and I watch the countdown.  2282.  Not bad, but of course not perfect.
I hear a dear friend say they have the same CP Kyogre as well.  Cool!
Then I hear the same dear friend say that he got a shiny!

Mine is also shiny!!!
Oh, but how do I tell Mr. Salty…
“I’m sorry… I don’t want to tell you this, but –”
“OH MY GOD!!! I FINALLY GOT MY SHINY!!!!!”
How cool is it that 3 of us got a Shiny Kyogre at the same raid?  And even cooler that two of us have the same CP? 🙂

Regis or Deoxys? Who will be next?

So more than likely the next Legendary Raid Boss will be one of these guys. Now keep in mind one thing that Deoxys are classified as Mythical Pokémon. We have only had one Mythical released in PoGo and that was of course Mew. He was unlocked by completing a series of Quests. So it has me wondering whether the Deoxys will follow the same path. Now that leaves us with the Regi Trio which in my opinion will be the next tier 5 raid bosses. I think they will release them in the same way that the Legendary beasts were done. There will be a different one in 3 parts of the world and then they will rotate them every month until everyone has had all 3.

With that in mind I want to stress something very important!! I constantly see people in my local chat waiting till the last minute to get the current legendary. They will be there a day before it disappears begging for people to help raid. Unfortunately by this point most people have plenty of them and aren’t interested in doing any more of that particular legendary. So here are some words of wisdom: “Go out and do the new legendary raids the first few days they come out!!” Everyone is super hyped up at the beginning and it is incredibly easy to get people to help you with raids. There will be multiple groups out and about and it won’t be a problem to acquire the new legendary.

I am hoping we hear an announcement sometime today regarding what new Legendary we will have for the next month. I’m pretty excited about all of them so anything that get announced I will be excited for. I will keep you guys posted the second i see a notification! Stay safe and happy hunting trainers!
