Legendary Week: Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza

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!

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!
