Trainers, the Legendary Week event is now officially over and Groudon and Kyogre have left the raid system.

The ancient Legendary Pokémon Rayquaza has proven victorious and Pokemon that prefer Windy weather will hatch more often from Eggs from March 5 to March 16. In addition, two new perks have been enabled worldwide:

  • Double XP until March 16
  • Raid Bosses that are boosted by Windy weather will be making appearances in Gyms that are hosting a raid battle (also until March 16)
