it's really weird, because on paper this raid boss honestly should've been one of the easiest. as long as you have someone with a) acid spray and b) a miraidon, the battle is as good as won provided everything goes to plan, but somehow even simple raids get made fairly difficult by people who don't understand how raid bosses work nor the terastal types. s:After enough tries on Decidueye, I am now thoroughly convinced that a disturbing amount of Pokémon players do not understand basic type matchups or the effects of Terastal. And I also utterly hate how this boss gets multiple moves in one turn after making the barrier. Put all that together and this 7 star boss has easily been the worst one so far. Cinderace was a cunt and a half, but this one is beyond the pale.
You know what? I'm skipping it this time. Fuck this. HOME's transfer update is coming soon, and even if it weren't, I'm after the Hisui form. And I also have all the Ability Patches I need for my projected team. And the Unrivalled mark is purely cosmetic fluff that don't affect anything. I see no point to or no substantial reward in it for me putting up with an obnoxious raid boss that openly cheats to win.
And to think I'd said earlier that the 7 star events would be one exception for my general thoughts on these raids. After Decidueye, I'm not sure about that anymore.
i don't blame you for passing on this. at any rate, i think people are breeding rowlets and wonder trading them, so if you'd like you can go that route. i know you mentioned you'd rather the hisuian form anyway, but something to consider.
