As a special tie in to the Pokemon’s franchise Legendary Year, Niantic has announced that from February 23 until March 5 Groudon and Kyogre raids will be available alongside Rayquaza raids.
The legendary mini event has a small twist: if Groudon and Kygore win, Pokémon that prefer Sunny or Rainy weather (like Trapinch or Lotad) are more likely to hatch. Otherwise, Pokemon that prefer Windy weather will be more likely to hatch. Both refer to from Eggs collected from March 5 to March 16.
Today, with the help of of our readers we’re bringing you a visual guide of Pokemon that will be more likely to hatch in both scenarios. A huge shout out goes to Yaaya and Ayzo, aka CoupleOfGaming – a lovely couple that shares their love of gaming and Pokemon. They are the authors of the visual guides posted below.
Defeat Kyogre & Groudon more than Rayquaza until March 5th to unlock these increased hatches (full resolution link)

We are inclined to prefer Rayquaza raids more than Kyogre and Groudon, despite them being arguably more useful and future proof. If Rayquaza wins, the 2k and 10k Egg tiers will be incredible: Abra, Exeggcute, Dratini, Bagon, Beldum, Chimecho and Ralts hype!
Again, huge shout out to CoupleOfGaming – you guys rock.
