Shiny Psyduck? In the anime? *Cue Monstropolis battle theme from Kingdom Hearts III*

Coincidental, as I always catch a Shiny Psyduck in Pokémon GO whenever I'm out of my home state, and I'm due to fly to Melbourne in two weeks.

If anyone is going to catch that Golurk please let it be Ash. Barring that just don't let it be Go. It is too strong for him at this point in time. Also, can someone please explain to me how Raid Battles work?

Based on a CoroCoro scan from a while back, it seems like Go will be catching it.

I wonder if the girl in the PV is related to Milo. Her hair and eyes color are the same as him.

OK. So, I looked up Raid Battles to see how they work and as I thought but, wasn't certain of as I don't play Pokemon Go every trainer in the group battling gets the opportunity to catch the Pokemon from the Raid Battle. Problem I see with that in the anime is there is only the one Pokemon so only one trainer could catch it unless in the anime the point of Raid Battles is battling the Pokemon not catching it so they decide ahead of time who would catch it but, then that still seems kind of odd and makes me wonder why they even bothered to add this Pokemon Go mechanic into the anime in the first place.

I guess we can't rely too much on the magazine scans

The Pokemon shown will probably appear but there will be others not shown

Nice to see Beedrill and Dragonite again. I hope these two actually see some play in the actual episode. This is also a chance for Scorbunny to actually fight, but his moveset is ineffective against Golurk.

@zeroxros7

Based on the Lugia raid, it seems that people take turns to battle/catch the wild Pokemon, and this is fair as everyone understands that. In Golurk's case, I doubt that the researchers want to catch it; they probably care about the ruins first and foremost. Ash cares about the thrill of battle, so nothing says that he wants to catch Golurk. I agree that Go shouldn't catch Golurk if he isn't the one doing most of the work, though.

It would be more interesting if a future raid featured multiple wild Pokemon, but that isn't a thing in any of the current games. Maybe they'll be reminded of SOS battles in Alola (did SM ever do anything with it?).
