TM FRUSTRATION

During Raid Day hours you will be able to TM away Frustration from your Shadow Pokémon! Wondering which ones are worthy of a TM? We have you covered in this great article by AlexoftheNine which can be read by clicking here.

FREE RAID PASSES

On Kanto Raid Day, you will be able to claim a total of 5 free Raid Passes!

To claim your Raid Passes you will need to interact with a Gym, but remember, you can only hold 1 Daily Raid Pass at a time, so you will not be able to stack them.

KANTO RAID DAY GOALS

We understand that not everybody is interested in a Raid Day focused on 3 Pokémon that have each had their own Raid Day previously. However, fear not Trainers, as there are a lot of other goals to achieve during Kanto Raid Day. 

DEM SHINIES: In my humble opinion: The birds are some really good-looking shinies! If you didn’t get the luck to get the shiny birds from previous Raids or Raid Days, now is the time!

RARE CANDY: Rare Candy is becoming almost as important as that dust these days with specific Pokémon, so this is a great way to stock up on some! 

CANDY XL: Even more important than Rare Candy, Candy XL is required to level your Pokémon past level 40, and all the way to level 50. This is a great opportunity to acquire some.

TRADE FODDER: New players start this game every day, and none of them will have had a chance to catch Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres. Keeping a few on hand to trade new players is always a good thing, and helps give back to the community.

RAID DAY INFOGRAPHICS

ATTACK OF THE BIRDS

Yes, Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres have all been in Raids many times before, and yes, they have all also each had their own Raid Day before. However, the exclusive moves for each of them are all REALLY good, and having a couple more good IV ones is not a bad thing at all. Plus, you get 5 Raids for FREE. 

Always remember to obey your local health and safety mandates, and stay socially distanced! Stay safe, Fam!
