Pokémon GO might not be holding any tellurian special events right now, though they are creation their approach around a universe for specific events in opposite locations. Last month it was Chicaog, final week it was Europe, this week it’s Yokohama in Japan where a players there are saying singular spawns like an un-region-locked Mr. Mime, Shiny Pichu and now, opposite raid bosses.
Part of a special Pokémon GO event is that Niantic is rotating in new raid bosses for a initial time given launch (outside of Legendaries, of course). While it’s not reliable that these Pokémon will be migrating external to be raid bosses around a world, a suspicion of rotating raid bosses has been around given a start, and it stands to reason Niantic could be contrast these Pokémon in Yokohama to see how they fare.
These reports are still entrance in, though a ones that I’ve seen reliable so far have been:
Wobuffet – 7,144 CP
Meowth – 9,079 CP
Pikachu – 11,845 CP
Piloswine – 21,604 CP
Houndoom – 27,302 CP
Ursaring – 27,409 CP
Golem – 30,572 CP
I’ve also listened reports of a Dragonite raid boss, though we haven’t seen that reliable yet.
The bizarre thing about these bosses is that they’re all Tier 4, definition we can kick a 9K CP Meowth (which many people should be means to solo) nonetheless still be alighting Tier 4 rewards ie. TMs, loads of Rare Candy, etc. That is clearly usually something function for a special event, however.
In reality, Wobuffet seems like he’d be Tier 1, while Meowth and Pikachu are between 1 and 2 level. Piloswine seems like a transparent Tier 3 and Ursaring, Houndoom and Golem are all Tier 4 level, we believe. These aren’t accurately a many valuable Pokémon out there other than maybe Golem and Houndoom (and Dragonite, if that’s true) in terms of their fighting prowess, though we can see Niantic wanting to start to brew adult a raid bosses, and to be honest, we have some now that aren’t accurately sought after (Elecatabuzz? Ugh) so this is kind of standard for a course. Even still, Meowth? I’m fine if they leave him behind. Also we have adequate Piloswine during this indicate to final me until a finish of time, and he is not fun to fight.
I’ve been speculating about future raid bosses for a while now, though usually a few of these done my brief list. Dragonite seems like an apparent deputy for Tyranitar, though other than that, we suspicion we’d see Gen 2 starter final forms as bosses, among others. Still, this is substantially not a finalized list of who is definitely rotating in as a boss. It could be some or none, and this unequivocally usually is a one-off event. But we do this trainer revolution is coming, substantially after a Legendaries disappear for a while.
I like a suspicion of every raid being Tier 4 for events, that is something we had not suspicion of to this point. we wish we see that in tellurian events shortly and honestly, I’m over these unequivocally hyper-localized, rewarding events for a diversion that has tens of millions of players worldwide who wish these kinds of fun prizes as well. Hopefully we’ll see something like this worldwide soon.
