Raikou will be returning to Raids on Saturday, June 29, 2019, 4:00 – 7:00 PM Local Time. It sounds like we are going to get another 3 hour raid day simular to the Legendary Birds, Gengar, and Lapras. Shiny Raikou will also be available through Raids on this day.
You have 7 days to enjoy these sweet rewards. No matter your preferred play style, there is a way for all Trainers to up their Candy count. Two rewards do pertain to hatching, so this week might be the perfect time to explore the town and use some incubators.
Everyone should keep their evening free on June 29th. Raikou is a Electric-type superstar, but a Shiny Raikou would be a perfect addition to any team. Keep in mind Raikou will be your best attacker when Suicune comes back on August 17, 2019, with the last round of the Global Challenge.
