Raid Bosses changes: March 5th, 2018


Rayquaza’s recent victory over Groudon and Kyogre brought us more than just weather boosted Egg hatches: double XP and a raid boss shake up!

To know more about the weather boosted Egg hatches, click here. With that being said, let’s move on to the results of the windy shake up among raid bosses.

The following infographic, provided to us by our new designer, the one and only CoupleofGaming  (Instagram and Twitter), elegantly displays the results of the windy shake up that recently took place among the raid bosses!

While this infographic provides you with most of the relevant information, we highly recommend raiding only after familiarizing yourself with our new and updated raid guides, which are listed below.
