Lugia Return to Raid Battles: Shiny Lugia?


#1

Lugia is returning to Pokemon GO, with a stronger “Sky Attack” than before.

But will we get Shiny Lugia?
Lugia catch Rate is 2% (was before atleast)


#2

Will it be in raids from tomorrow or from 17? some sites say 17 bit i hope tomorrow


#3

16th


#4

i’m in italy, i hope it’s the same for us :slight_smile:


#5

Usually for us in the UK we get it new raid Pokemon the day after Niantic says because they get released at 9pm our time


#6

And the answer: Yes.


#7

Shiny Lugia has been caught by someone on my local Discord


#8

Lugia mad hard…7-9 people i aint doing no 4 or 5s again.


#9

Yes, Shiny Lugia is here. I have recently have caught a Shiny Lugia. Did you know that if you get a Shiny Lugia in the raid, you’ll catch the Shiny 100% Guaranteed. No joke!!! Keep searching. :):sunglasses:


#10

100%?!?!??!


#11

Well, unless you miss all of your throws…


#12

Yes, so far everybody Ive seen claims to have caught it on the first ball, maybe they just didnt want people to complain if it flees


#13

i have seen. Thats pretty nice of Niantic. Should increase chance of seeing Shiny


#14

Shiny Lugia’s every where in my area today. Lots of players getting multiples. I only did 2 Lugia today which is poor by my standard for weekend play. No Shiny but did get a weather boosted 98%. First windy day all day we’ve since weather was included in the game.


#15

No-one on the Discord group got one (as of yet), but I did snag a 89% weather boosted Lugia so that was nice.


#16

One tip for lugia, DONT WAIT UNTIL IT ATTACKS!!
Due to how its attack animation works, you will be happy if you land a nice this way
Instead, wait until its down, and then just spin it and throw it when it can be excellent
Sure, there’s a slight chance it will attack (barely ever did that to me tho) but you will at least have almost guaranteed excellents/greats if it doesnt


#17

9 Lugia Raids today all weather boosted.
One of the kids has one, the wife’s got one and I got the best one :grinning:.


#18

What wheather boosts Lugia?


#19

Windy weather
