Sorry I couldn’t come up with a better title, but I don’t care. This was the event that I was referring to in my post about Chrales’ findings about a Raid Week. So to confirm, we’re getting a Raid Week, full of lovely bonuses! The Raid Week will start Tuesday May 21st until Tuesday May 28th. We will gain 2x Raid Stardust and 2x Raid XP, perfect for those of us who still remembers their Lucky Eggs and Star Pieces! We will also have shiny Bronzor released for us to attempt to find!
Bold are shinies
1* – Machop, Slakoth, Shinx, Bronzor
2* – Misdreavus, Kirlia, Mawile, Feebas, Clamperl, Bibarel
3* – Alolan Raichu, Chansey, Scyther, Aerodactyl, Floatzel
4* – Alolan Marowak, Dragonite, Tyranitar, Absol, Metagross
That was just the Extraordinary Raid Week. During this week, we will also get a Raid Hour on Wednesday 22nd May from 6pm until 7pm local time. The number of raids of all levels will increase during the hour – which is great for me, I’m attempting to get back into raiding, and I can’t wait to attempt to get some shinies.
Speaking of shinies, on Saturday May 25th from 11am until 2pm local time, we are getting a Lapras Raid Day. Just like the Legendary Birds and Gengar before it, Lapras will have its own special raid day, where we receive up to five Raid Passes from Gyms at no cost, and multiple chances of encountering a shiny Lapras!
And now for my reaction…
I love the idea of a raid week. I just hope that throughout the week raids are more common than normal, so that we can have a good amount of opportunities to raid the hell out of the gyms. At least we know in advance when the raid hour is this time, instead of it being a surprise. This means we can plan routes efficiently and organise carshares!
This is the first ‘Chaos Day’ I will be able to do since Zapdos – I was working during Moltres Day and I had an injury shortly before Gengar Day, so I could do neither of those. But this time will be fun, I’m sure of it!
