Current Raid Bosses (Via LeekDuck)

I want to fight Meg.
"You always act like you're better than me!"
“Shut up, Meg”
parasect is the ultimate "meg" counter
this made me laugh too much tbh
Now if only Parasect, Claydol, and Metagross could be shiny...
Season of discovery. Discover the best Pokémon from 5 years ago.
you could do metagross for 2+ xl per raid...
Yeah, I’ve been doing them occasionally for that reason. Very close to being able to get enough candy to level 50 one
It’s tragic that there isn’t shinx, timbur, or even deino was a level 1 for me to burn my daily pass on.
That they remove tyranitar is the worst for me. It was sooo easy to defeat with 2 players, and in the last days they were showing up more often.
How long will Mewtwo be here for?
July 23, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time
When does Niantic usually announce the upcoming raid changes? I’m curious who’s replacing Mewtwo
Sometimes it's last minute sometimes it's a day or 2 beforehand
Guess it really depends on when they decide to get around to it
I think it will be one of Dilaga / Palkia as a part of unlock bonus 1 and it might be shiny too.
I commented below, but i believe we’ll get dialga for ultra unlock one, because he’s the time pokemon. And Palkia will be ultra unlock 2, because he’s the space pokemon. I’m referring to their two Pokédex entry in PoGo. But this is pure speculation.
I think so too. But I am more excited about shiny Shieldon!
They announced it for the July news. Mega Charizard X is next!
Mega Charizard is going to Replace Genger, but there should be one to replace Mewtwo as well
I definitely read that wrong haha. Since the Time Ultra Unlock starts right after mewtwo ends, maybe dialga? I’d love for it to get its signature move or shiny released
Looking at the Ultra Unlocks and the pokedex description for Dialga and Palkia, it’s very likely Dialga can go July 23-Aug 6 for Time, and Palkia Aug 6-17th for space.
Dialga is a temporal pokemon that has the power to control time. Palkia is a spatial pokemon that has the ability to distort space. So those two fit the bill pretty good.
Feel like they'll hold Dialga and Palkia for the release of the DP remasters in a couple months.
edit: or not
Those are very underwhelming, apart from Mewtwo I can't see me doing any raids until it changes
Can metagross be soloed?
Full team of high tier lvl 40 counters, then yes
Every tier 3 can be soloed except for shuckle
Just get on poke genie. Lots of people want to help you beat the raid boss.
Yes, but it’s pretty difficult without weather boost or high level counters
It’s very difficult, I can solo most t3s but even with a carefully selected team I didn’t make it (it was very close though) enlisted a friend and it was easy, maybe your Pokémon are way better than mine though.
At least according to sims, even at level 40 counters, unless you have the absolute top tier counters or using weather boosts, solo seems to be cutting it a bit close, and with lesser tier counters weather boost might not be able to tide you over.
I've been doing them with Darkrai, Moltres, Giratina, and Yvetal all lvl 40 and 98%... usually finish with 1-10 seconds left depending on moveset... its a pretty tight finish haha.
I saw Magcargo as an option on Poke Genie. Anyone know if that’s an error?
Can Paras just return to the northern hemisphere already.
God I wish I could see my boy again
Wow, what total crap! At least there’s Metagross. . .
Please bring back Rufflet in 1 star raids.
so you can do 500 raids and dont get a shiny
Is meta gross soloable with Pokemon around the 2800 mark?
Not according to pokebattler.
No. I have trouble with pokes that are nearly 4000 unless there's weather boost.
If the pokemon is Excadrill and the weather is clear, you have a chance (dodging earthquake). Otherwise, no.
Aside from Mewtwo (who has returned to raids too many times to count already), this might be the worst lineup we've had to date.
Unexpectedly I got a shiny Mewtwo today. I did not encounter any during Go Fest raid yesterday.
Shiny chance doesn’t change for legendary Pokémon regardless of Go Fest.
LeekDuck does it again!
So, once you hit rank 20 in GBL you should have a shot at catching Mewtwo...right? I caught Regice as my guaranteed encounter several weeks ago during the first round of Great League. Now that Great League has returned, I've been trying for my first Mewtwo. However, I keep getting the other mons in the pool when I win three matches. Just bad luck so far or am I misunderstanding how this is supposed to work?
Just bad luck. When Deoxys was in raids I'd get 2 or 3 a day but Mewtwo seems to be much less common as an encounter for me too.
it might be the rng. I've gotten yvetal as my guaranteed the last time I hit 20 and have been trying ever since. I saw somewhere that kyurem would be the guaranteed this season but i guess I was wrong because I didn't get a legendary(Mewtwo) until today and i had lost the first two matches
Thanks for the reply. I figured it has just been bad luck with the RNG. Just wanted to make sure. I'll just keep on trying.
Metagross same tier as Cranidos ahah
dude I love parasect, and this is in addition a cool reference to gen 1 in which paras was stated to be only reliable mew2 counter
parasect, not one of the strongest pokemon, yet the one who is there for you whenever a kyogre is running rampant and needs some beating
