Adding new raid bosses for further generations

raidboss
speculation

#1

With gen 3 coming in the last quarter of this year, I hope that Ninantic will bring out new raid bosses as well.
Let’s say Metagross will be a gen 3 raid boss, people may get it with more way and increase the chance to get it similar to Tyranitar.


#2

I think possible future raids (from gen. III and others as well) are: Latios, Latias, Groudon, Kyogre, Rayquaza, maybe Regice, Registeel, or Regirock, Glalie, Dusclops, Feebas, and Vibrava.


#3

And Maybe Manectric and Hariyama


#4

Prediction of gen 3 raid bosses
Level 1: Feebas, Grovyle, Combusken, Marshtomp
Level 2: Medicham, Manectric, Swalot, Grumpig, Glalie
Level 3: Flygon, Altaria, Claydol, Banette, Walrein
Level 4: Gardevoir, Aggron, Salamance, Metagross
Level 5 (Normal): Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Latias, Latios
Level 5 (Ex): Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza

That’s actually quite good - like the list!


#6

If that happened on launch, it’d be awful. Would basically make every rare/desired Pokemon way too easy to obtain, leading to a generation burnout infinitely faster than Gen 2 (which is about half the size of Gen 3).


#7

Maybe it’s only available during events.


#8

This is what Ive come up with and calculated: (Azuril and Groudon/Kyogre are here for highest and lowest raid cp)

Assuming the stats found on PoGo Hub are accurate


#9

That’s a bit confusing. (As an example, I can see Azurill in every raid level) Would you mind listing out all gen 3 raid boss according to the stat?


#10

Ive done it just as comparison (Azurill ends up with lowest boss CP, and the weather legends witht the highest)

Ive put some bosses (like Milotic on both 3rd and 4th tier) because I wasnt sure where could they end up


#11

I’ve seen enough Dusclops. Rest are okay. :white_check_mark:


#12

The prediction was made before Halloween event that’s why you think Dusclops is not suitable for raids.


#13

Oh whoops! Sorry about that! Always gets confusing when old threads become new again. :sweat_smile:


#14

Limitations of raid bosses:

  1. Must not be evoluted by evolution items
  2. Must not be Pokemon in special cases (e.g. Ditto, Unown)
  3. Must not be mythical Pokemon (e.g. Manaphy, Victini)
  4. Must not be baby Pokemon (e.g. Pichu, Riolu)
  5. Must not be regional exclusive Pokemon

#15

I’ve corrected it into ‘Glalie’. Would now be better?


#16

Mythicals might actually be availible at events as raid bosses tho


#17

I think mythical Pokemon should only be hatched from eggs. It’s a reference to Pokemon anime.


#18

At least I can see the potential for replacing raid bosses. With the release of gen 3, I think Niantic may replace the raid boss for gen 3 Pokemon. Hopefully Niantic will follow my list of gen 3 raid bosses.

Special research
