I don't know if this has been a thing since weather was first implemented, but it was lightly raining on the field and I saw a rainbow in the background. Pretty
Both of us started with Armored Mewtwo as our first legend raids. Bully for you! Congratulations!After that, there was an Armoured Mewtwo raid about to start and there was about 14 other players in the lobby! We took it down very quickly and, finally, I caught my first Legendary Pokemon after a successful raid. I am so happy to finally have a Mewtwo (although I still need a regular one), but it means my Kanto Dex is finally complete!!!
For reference, I managed to take down Alola Raichu solo at level 36 with three Rhyperiors (or Rhydons, can't remember precisely) with mud slap and earth quake. But that was somewhere last year, though.There was an Alolan Raichu raid, but nobody was around. I tried battling it on my own, but the most I could do was bring it down to the yellow. I kept going at it just in case someone decided to show up and help - I only needed one more person to beat it.
I'll have to look for another raid.
Is it possible that they could have been private grouping?Saw an Armored Mewtwo Raid and went to participate. It was a busy commercial area, so I expected a lot of participants. There were at least 5 others waiting by the time I reached that place, so I entered.
However, by the time the battle started, nobody else joined. What's else, none of the participants were on the battle field - just waiting in the lobby. I don't know what was going on, but after a few moments of seeing Mewtwo's HP unchanged, I also left the battle. It was really confusing.
This happens to me all the time, I keep finding rainy Castform spawning next to Cherrim's open form. I find the weather in the game so inaccurate though, like the other day was the hottest sunniest day of the year, and it rained all day in game. Bizarre.For some really bizarre reason, I encountered a wild Castform.
In its regular form.
In the rain.
You're not alone in this. Even long-time level 40 players complain about it. Rattata is relatively easy to take down, the real pain in the neck is shadow Snorlax. That thing smacked away my level 40 Machamps like they're nothing. For picking out the Pokemons to use, I've noticed it's not only type-effectiveness that counts but the Pokemon should have a good defense as well. I thought Mamoswine should have no issue chomping through shadow Dratini, Dragonair and Dragonite but the truth is that I barely won. Dialga, however, mowed right through them and required no switch at all.On another note, anyone else really struggling with Team Go Rocket? I've only came across 2 PokeStops overrun by them and I'm finding the battles incredibly difficult.
It took me three times to beat a grunt using Rattata and Raticate, they seem to take out my Pokemon far too quickly while I do little damage to them. I tried using a Hitmon trio and failed, then I tried using Steel types and just barely won.
This is new, shadow Pokemon that can run away before you run out of Premier Balls. Not a good development.The worst part was the Shadow Rattata ran away after breaking out of the first Premier Ball.
I'm hoping it was just a glitch and not indicative of future encounters.This is new, shadow Pokemon that can run away before you run out of Premier Balls. Not a good development.
