If we see a Legendary Egg cocktail adult in Pokémon GO right now, there’s no revelation what’s inside. We’re in a grips of Legendary Week, that means that Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza are all spawning during a same time, giving players like me a possibility to locate adult on a Legendaries they competence have missed when they usually didn’t feel like going out in a blizzard. That ends tomorrow, when we go behind to usually carrying Rayquaza parent until Mar 15th. And while we don’t know accurately when that will happen, around 1 PM PST is a never a terrible bet.
I can’t contend I’ll be unhappy to see it go, given all in all this doesn’t feel like a well-executed event. On a simple level, it suffers from a same problem that a diversion had when all 3 Legendary Birds were accessible during a same time: nobody shows adult for Raids. It’s already tough to get people together for many Legendary Raids, though it’s even harder when people can’t be guaranteed they’ll get the Pokémon they’re after. Without that certainty people are some-more expected to usually not uncover up.
With this event, however, that problem is compounded by a fact that there’s a kind of locate plea going on. On a surface, it seems fine: if Kyogre is caught, more Pokémon that cite Rainy continue will induce from eggs, if some-more Groudon are caught, it will be Sunny Pokémon, and if some-more Rayquaza caught, it will be some-more Windy Pokémon. The problem is that Windy is clearly what we’re after here — Niantic even privately called it out by observant that we’d have a improved possibility during Bagon, and so a singular third-tier expansion Salamence. So what we’ve got is a conditions where there are three Pokémon available, though a diversion feels like it’s disincentivizing us from throwing dual of them. That’s not a recipe for engagement, and I’ve seen it borne out in my internal raid scene, that feels some-more passed than usual.
Right now, #TeamRayquaza is winning, that shouldn’t warn anyone, generally given it’s an easier quarrel anyway. The judgment of a fun, Splatoon-style “which do we like better” quarrel is a good one, it usually doesn’t unequivocally compare with a wholly RNG-focused Pokémon GO. Even if we cruise yourself #teamGroudon, we competence never have a possibility to contribute.
It’s too bad, given we do still need a Kyogre: we feel like a improved approach of doing this would be to usually fast cycle the Pokémon for 3 days during a time, or something. The singular time Legendaries have been a double-edged sword given a beginning, generally given there’s no query complement for throwing adult on what we missed. It creates it sparkling while you’ve got a possibility during that months’ creature, though if we –like me — competence have missed one, it effectively thatch we out of ever throwing them all. That has a approach of tamping down long-term fad in a diversion where that’s unequivocally a usually goal.
