Kyogre Raids are now live but are proving pretty tough for Trainers.The new Legendary is a tier 5 boss encounter, meaning it’s one of the toughest in the game.And some Trainers are finding it a little harder than usual to triumph in the timed-Raid battles.
Several issues have been highlighted as making it harder to nab a Kyogre, which has led to some giving up entirely.According to feedback from dedicated Trainers on Reddit, players are having issues landing the Great and Excellent throws needed to catch it.This is apparently caused by Kyogre standing further away than with other Legendary-types, meaning you may end up missing more than usual.
But even getting to the final stage is proving difficult, due to the Water-type’s speed and attack power.While having some hefty firepower behind it isn’t that unusual for a Legendary, not being able to land those Pokeballs the way you want can mean losing a vital percentage on your capture rate.
“My personal experience is that 1. This boss is more stressful than fun and 2. It requires an enormous expenditure of resources for each attempt,” one Reddit user commented.“Honestly, maybe that’s as it should be if we want these to feel legendary. Regardless, I finally got mine on the fifth attempt and I’m done with it.”
Another reported: “Ultimately, the raid system isn’t very fun. Once you get over the initial novelty of a new raid boss, you’re just left with the stress of ensuring you find a raid group, ensuring you catch the boss, ensuring you catch one with decent IVs… The catch rates on Kyogre, in particular, are just too low to make the process enjoyable.”
Most recent update from Niantic changed the distance between the Pokeball and Kyogre, so players wont face much difficulty catching this Legendary Pokemon.
Kyogre is available to catch at Gym until February 14, at which time it will be switched out by Niantic.Always remember Electric-Types Are King.As a pure Water-Type Pokemon, Kyogre is only weak to Grass and Electric-Type attacks. Unfortunately, there’s a 33% chance that Kyogre will have Blizzard as its charge move, which will wipe out a lot of Grass-Type Pokemon in just one hit.
That leaves you with only one option that you have to bring an Electric-Type Pokemon to fight Kyogre. Raikou is the best counter for Kyogre, especially when armed with ThunderShock and Wild Charge. All of Raikou’s attacks are Electric-Types, but Thunder is probably its weakest charge move due to its relatively low damage and long charge time.While Zapdos has a higher Attack stat than Raikou, it’s not as valuable due to its weakness to Ice-Type attacks. Zapdos will go down to just one Blizzard attack, so Zapdos is a glass cannon as best.
If you want to bring some Grass-Type Pokemon into the battle, you probably want to start with Sceptile. Sceptile will go down to a Blizzard attack, but Leaf Blade will make a dent into Kyogre’s HP. Exeggutor and Venusaur are also useful, especially when armed with Solar Beam.
The strongest Solar Beam attackers aren’t actually Grass-Type Pokemon. Groudon and Ho-Oh both have Solar Beam in their move set and are surprisingly useful despite their weakness to Water-Type attacks. Ho-Oh should survive at least one of Kyogre’s charge attacks, and Groudon is actually resistant to Kyogre’s Thunder attack.
As new change of weather is consider and is real effective in battles.It plays a important role in how you should approach Kyogre. You should avoid battling Kyogre in snowy weather, as its already dangerous Blizzard attack becomes even more powerful. Rainy weather will boost Kyogre’s Hydro Pump and Thunder attacks, but it also makes it a lot more vulnerable to Electric-Type attacks from Pokemon like Raikou and Jolteon. If facing Kyogre in rainy weather, just load up your team with Electric-Type Pokemon, as even underwhelming Pokemon like Manectric will come in handy on a second raid team.
Dragonite and Mewtwo become a lot more effective in Windy and Foggy weather respectively, so don’t be afraid to use these great generalists when the weather isn’t cooperating!
For Raiding Kyogre raid group should take between 5-7 experienced Pokemon trainers to consistently defeat Kyogre. A group of 3-4 trainers should be able to take down Kyogre if they have enough high level Pokemon specialized to take down this massive Water-Type Legendary.
Trainers are also hoping that a new Pokemon Go update will be released this week.Based on what happened last year, a new Pokemon patch could be released on January 17.That’s what happened in 2017, while fans have also noticed that the same pattern is being followed now.According to those tracking it, the most recent updates have been launched on the same days as those in 2016, meaning we could be about to see some new bug fixes launched.
Niantic haven’t said when their next patch will be released, although a new one will likely be launched before the upcoming Community Day, being held on January 20.What are your thoughts about community day event?Lemme hear you guys out in the comments or you can get connected with me on Snapchat-Vibsz16 and Instagram. Stay tuned.
10 Gen 3 Pokemon That Are As Strong As Legendary Pokemon
Here is the list of Top 10 Gen 3 Pokemon That Are As Strong As Legendary Pokemon, and can help any player to capture and attack gyms.
Number 10 – Milotic
MAX CP- 2542
ATTACK – 60
DEFENSE – 79
STAMINA – 190
Milotic is an aquatic, serpentine Pokémon with a primarily cream-colored body. It has red eyes with long, pinkish antennae above them. Additionally, there are long, hair-like fins above its eyes, which begin thin and thicken towards the tips. These eyebrows extend to almost half of Milotic’s body length and will be longer on the female than the male. On top of its relatively small head is a straight spike. The tail consists of four large, blue fins with pink ovals in their centers. Each of the tail fins overlaps the next slightly, causing it to resemble a fan. While it has not been depicted, Milotic’s scales are said to change color depending on the viewing angle.
Number 9 – Flygon
MAX CP- 2458
ATTACK – 100
DEFENSE – 80
STAMINA – 160
Flygon resembles a slightly insectoid, bipedal dragon. It is primarily light green and has a pair of large rhombus-shaped wings with a red trim, toeless hind legs, and skinny arms with three-clawed hands. Its tail has several dark green stripes and three small green rhombus shapes with red trims at the end. It has large eyes and a pair of green antennae that point back. The eyes have red covers that prevent sand from getting into its eyes. With its wings, it kicks up sandstorms to hide. Its wings make a “singing” sound when they are flapped, earning Flygon the name “The Desert Spirit”. It lives in the desert.
Number 8 – Gardevoir
MAX CP- 2341
ATTACK – 65
DEFENSE – 65
STAMINA – 136
Beginning its life as Ralts (the Pokemon that kinda looks like male genitalia), it’s a little surprising it turns into Gardevoir – who looks a lot like some kind of elegant dancer (and a lot of other things, if you dare to venture into Google Image Search – which reminds us: NEVER GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH ANY POKEMON EVER BUT ESPECIALLY NOT GARDEVOIR). Apart from its traumatic internet legacy, it’s a pretty solid Pokemon (now one of the added Fairy-types), and its Pokedex entries indicate that it would do anything to protect its trainer. Always nice to know your Pokemon has Stockholm’s Syndrome.
Number 7 –….
