SOME KIND OF Mega CLOSING?

So far, the consensus is this isn’t so much a Mega Event, but a much needed Mega Break…and to be honest, some of us could really use it. All-in-all, go out, get you some Mega Raids in, enjoy yourselves but, don’t overdo it. We can’t help but think Mega Pidgeot will make its debut at some point or another. No need to rush it. Let us know what you think on Twitter or by joining our Discord! Stay safe out there!
