I want to fight Meg.


Gatofranco

"You always act like you're better than me!"


deadpools_dick

“Shut up, Meg”


JoJolteon_66

parasect is the ultimate "meg" counter


Skyypool

this made me laugh too much tbh


SockBramson

Now if only Parasect, Claydol, and Metagross could be shiny...


kasper2k4

Season of discovery. Discover the best Pokémon from 5 years ago.


dragonfoxmem

you could do metagross for 2+ xl per raid...


orlouge82

Yeah, I’ve been doing them occasionally for that reason. Very close to being able to get enough candy to level 50 one


NervousBreakdown

It’s tragic that there isn’t shinx, timbur, or even deino was a level 1 for me to burn my daily pass on.


EdoGtz

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.


FatChinee

How long will Mewtwo be here for?


bs000

July 23, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. local time


FatChinee

Thanks!


yankeephil86

When does Niantic usually announce the upcoming raid changes? I’m curious who’s replacing Mewtwo


AlexanderXIII

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


kukdukdu

I think it will be one of Dilaga / Palkia as a part of unlock bonus 1 and it might be shiny too.


yankeephil86

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.


kukdukdu

I think so too. But I am more excited about shiny Shieldon!


praisethekarp

They announced it for the July news. Mega Charizard X is next!


yankeephil86

Mega Charizard is going to Replace Genger, but there should be one to replace Mewtwo as well


praisethekarp

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


yankeephil86

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.


Echleon

Feel like they'll hold Dialga and Palkia for the release of the DP remasters in a couple months. edit: or not


turbobuddah

Those are very underwhelming, apart from Mewtwo I can't see me doing any raids until it changes


sarsartar

Can metagross be soloed?


hun7z

Full team of high tier lvl 40 counters, then yes


NightwingXCX

Every tier 3 can be soloed except for shuckle


ReturnOfTheMagiPGo

Just get on poke genie. Lots of people want to help you beat the raid boss.


orlouge82

Yes, but it’s pretty difficult without weather boost or high level counters


inmywhiteroom

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.


Aldreath

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.


Lieutenant1321

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.


fulanita_de_tal

I saw Magcargo as an option on Poke Genie. Anyone know if that’s an error?


Maserati777

Can Paras just return to the northern hemisphere already.


Biopax

God I wish I could see my boy again


Apprehensive-Sky-760

Wow, what total crap! At least there’s Metagross. . .


JREncarnacion

Please bring back Rufflet in 1 star raids.


JoJolteon_66

so you can do 500 raids and dont get a shiny


GuiltyM20

Is meta gross soloable with Pokemon around the 2800 mark?


Aldreath

Not according to pokebattler.


leastwise

No. I have trouble with pokes that are nearly 4000 unless there's weather boost.


evan_james

If the pokemon is Excadrill and the weather is clear, you have a chance (dodging earthquake). Otherwise, no.


oshagme

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.


Jepaz

Unexpectedly I got a shiny Mewtwo today. I did not encounter any during Go Fest raid yesterday.


DGSmith2

Shiny chance doesn’t change for legendary Pokémon regardless of Go Fest.


affinitypaw

LeekDuck does it again!


jrmutley1

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?


RemLazar911

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.


asleepyness

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


jrmutley1

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.


Shinoryu23

Metagross same tier as Cranidos ahah


Biopax

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
