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!
[Clicks to see my Kyogre]
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? 🙂

Water Festival Event 2018 has seriously knocked my socks off!

Trainers,
It’s time to make a splash! Our Water Festival returns June 7 at 1:00 p.m. PDT, with Water-type Pokémon such as Magikarp and Wailmer appearing more frequently in the wild. Some lucky Trainers may even encounter a rare Shiny Shellder for the very first time during the event! Plus, enjoy Field Research tasks highlighting Water-type Pokémon until June 21 at 1:00 p.m. PDT.

Alongside increased appearance of Water-type Pokémon appearing all over the world, you’ll be able to earn 3× Stardust for catching Water-type Pokémon. Plus, 2 km Eggs will hatch exciting Pokémon such as Totodile, Mudkip, and Corphish—earn Double Candy and Stardust for every Egg hatched!

Raid Battles will also feature powerful Water-type Pokémon for the duration of the celebration, including the exciting return of the Legendary Pokémon Kyogre. And, if you challenge Kyogre during the event and come out victorious, there is a chance you’ll encounter its Shiny form!

So Trainers, dive on in to this water-focused event before it ends on June 21!

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!

Ho-Oh Back in Raids!

Ho Oh is back in raids and better than ever! This time it returns as a possible shiny! Starting today he will appear along side Latios and Latias in Level 5 eggs. If they keep the same format as shiny Lugia release then when you encounter a shiny it will have %100 catch rate. With that in mind make sure you pinap it so you are sure to get those extra candies! Good luck finding a shiny everyone! Happy raiding!!

Great Infographic

I found this graphic on The Silph Road and I thought it was very useful. It was created by /u/Yonderkid and very well done. It shows a variety of information relating  to the current raid bosses. It’s shows everything from max/min cp, to best weather to battle in, and even shows the difficulty level of each one based on how many players you have in the lobby. Enjoy Trainers, and Happy Raiding!!
