Pokémon Go Getting Rayquaza Raids, Increased Dragon Spawns, and New Raid Rotation

Pokémon Go Getting Rayquaza Raids, Increased Dragon Spawns, and New Raid Rotation

Rayquaza is set to appear in Raid Battles starting on February 9th, and will be sticking around until March 16th (meaning it has a bit of overlap with Kyogre, who's departing on February 14th).

And the good news is that the Legendary Pocket Monster is relatively easy to defeat. While most of these Pokemon are Ice-Type Pokemon, most aren't strong enough to really make a dent against this powerful Pokemon.

The Pokemon GO team is not done yet with all the exciting work.

Hardcore Pokemon Go fans might also want to consider the likes of Lapras, Walrein and Articuno, which all have double ice movesets.

Unfortunately, most of these Pokemon won't really help players that are looking for effective counters to Rayquaza.




Check out the gallery below for a look at the best Pokemon to use in Raid battles with Rayquaza.

Niantic has not given up on Pokemon Go just yet as the developer continues to add new Pokemon into the game at a steady rate. Also, between February 9 and February 13, every Pokemon running around the world will be from the third gen of "Pokemon" games. These Pokemon include Salamence, Altaria, Metagross, among others.

And that's not all Niantic has in store for Pokemon Go.

In addition, players "might see" different Pokemon in Raid Battles at their nearby Gym, and from hatched Eggs. Lure Modules will also be more effective ("Super Effective", if you will) until February 23, lasting six hours, as opposed to the normal 30 minutes.
