Rayquaza wins the Legendary Week: new Special Egg event and double XP until March 16


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)

The following Pokemon are more likely to be hatched from March 5 to March 16:

Distance Pokemon Perfect hatch CP
2KM Abra 656
Slowpoke 688
Exeggcute 629
Taillow 366
Swablu 412

Dratini 491
Skarmory 1161

A few clarifications:

  • Chimecho grants extra Stardust
  • Only Eggs picked up between March 5 and March 16 are eligible for increased hatches. Older eggs are not included
  • You can still hatch other Pokemon

Niantic has also acknowledged that the contents of current box sale will not change until March 11, when the box sale will end. The current box sale is an absolute steal for both casual and hardcore raiders and we strongly suggest you get one before they disappear.
