The Pokémon Company has just announced that a special Nidoking Raid Boss will appear in Japan as a tie in to the Team Rainbow Rocket’s takeover of Pokémon Centers and Pokémon Stores.

In the special, event only raid battle, players will be able to fight Team Rocket Boss Giovanni’s Nidoking. Giovanni’s Nidoking is not your ordinary Nidoking, it’s more powerful and stronger than the average Nidoking raid boss! Our Nidoking raid guide is still valid and useful.

Trainers will have to work together to take down Giovanni’s Nidoking. Those who are successful in capturing this peculiar Nidoking will be rewarded with a special Pokemon GO Nidoking Sticker from the staff at the Pokemon Center.

Here are the dates and times for the Nidoking Raid Battles:

    February 26, 2018 to March 11, 2018
  • Giovanni’s Nidoking Raid Battle Starting Time
