Pokemon Go Raikou Raid Day Event is just around the corner. This limited time raid event will kick off tomorrow and will bring a golden opportunity for the players to catch one of the three Legendary from Pokemon Gold and Silver, Raikou.
Raikou is a rare sight in Pokemon Go, making tomorrow’s Raid Day a good opportunity to add one to your collection if you had previously missed it. To make you ready for this event, we have gathered all the important pieces of information about the Raikou Raid Day below, from its start times to your chances of finding a Shiny Raikou and more. So, read on for more details.
Start and End Time
Like most of the Community Days event, the Pokemon Go Raikou Raid Day event will also run for three hours, from 4-7 PM local time. During this period, Raikou will appear as a Raid Boss at Gyms. So, you must fight and win the battle to collect this Legendary Pokemon in your list.
How to Participate in the Raids?
As you already know, participation in raid events requires Raid Pass. You can obtain the one Raid Pass on a daily basis by spinning your first PhotoDisc at a Gym. In this way, you can collect a total of one Raid Pass each day. Luckily, Niantic is giving away up to five free Raid Passes during the Raikou Raid event as an added bonus, giving everyone a chance to participate in this event.
Once you have some Raid Passes, head to a Gym where a Raikou Raid is taking place and team up with other players in-person to battle the Legendary. If you defeat it, you’ll earn a handful of Premier Balls along with the opportunity to capture it.
Raikou is a pure Electric-type Pokemon, giving it only one weakness: Ground-type attacks. It can resist Electric, Flying and Steel-type moves, so we recommend Pokemon that use those types of offense.
How to Capture Shiny Raikou
During the Raikou Raid Day, you’ll have a chance of encountering a Shiny Raikou when you battle the Legendary at Raids. If you get succeeded to defeat the Raikou in the battle, you will earn rewards and shift to the catching phase of the Raid Battle. This is the place where you get an opportunity to encounter Shiny Raikou. As you know, Shiny Pokemon are quite rare to catch, so its all depend on your luck whether it appears to you or not.
