Players who still haven’t managed to catch Rayquaza might want to act fast. The new Legendary Pokemon will only appear for 2 more days, so this is your last chance before it disappears.
Friday, March 16th is the last day where you will be able to find and fight a Rayquaza in a Raid Battle, at a Gym. Like the other Legendary Pokemon in the game, only a team of players can battle it, each player will only be able to capture it after it has been defeated in said Raid Battle.
Even though it is one of the most powerful Legendaries, Rayquaza is very weak to Ice-type attacks because of its Dragon&Flying type. Therefore, it is advised players bring an Ice-type Pokemon to the fight, such as Lapras.
After Kyogre and Groudon appeared earlier this year in the game in Raid Battles, Rayquaza is the third Generation 3 Legendary to appear in the game. As part of Legendary Week, the first two were added back into the game for a short period of time and players would get a different reward based on which Legendary was defeated the most during that time.
Thanks to the Legendary Week, until March 16th, players can hatch eggs faster. Specifically, eggs of Pokemon that spawn in windy condition, like Bagon for example. Additionally, Raid Battles also contain Pokemon that prefer wind. Bonus XP is just icing on top of the cake for players until March 16th.
The Next Event
March 25th marks the beginning of the third Pokemon Go Community Day event. As usual, it will be activated for 3 hours. In this time, players have a change to capture a special Bulbasaur that knows a move it can not learn in the game by normal means. Unfortunately we do not know what this move is yet.
Will you be able to catch the ominous Rayquaza in the remaining 2 days? What do you think? Tell us in the comments down below! As always, stay tuned for more Pokemon GO news!
