|Event||Latios Raid Week|
|Date + Time||
Players have been clamoring about shiny Latios ever since Niantic announced that Latias will return for a Special Raid Weekend back in February of this year. We expect high attendance and player engagement once this event kicks off – shiny Latios is not only beautiful, it’s also genuinely useful!
Here’s a quick comparison between normal and shiny Latios:
As you may have read in our Latios vs. Latias: Metagame analysis, neither Latios nor Latias are the strongest Pokèmon as far raids are concerned, but they are usable attackers and can be caught at decently high CPs – Level 20 CPs are above 2000, and Level 25 CPs are above 2600!
