My first raid questions


#1

There is a raid starting by me soon, going by the screen shot will I be battling these two or what ?

EDIT: the guy on the right with 543 is mine


#2

Nope, the raid will automatically generate a Pokemon for you to battle with a very high CP. From the colour of the egg, it will be either a level 3 or level 4 raid.

I’m going to assume you’re a low level so I don’t think you’ll be able to solo the raid so you’ll need a few people there with you to win the battle.

Level 16 dude


#4

those 2 pokemon are defending the gym, they are not the raid.

in the left bottom corner i see a yellow egg, meaning it’s a level 3 or 4 raid.
Only when it hatches you’ll know what it’ll be.
if you tap the corner icon you’ll switch screen to see the egg and timer, which you can also see from outside the gym.

For you: level 3 or 4 are not soloable.
Higher level players can solo level 3
No-one can solo level 4.

Yeah so some level 3 raids can be done on your own, but not at your level I’m afraid. You need to be up around level 30. But if there are a few players doing the raid you should be ok depending on the Pokemon you are battling.

Thanks guys :smiley:

When the egg hatches, you will be able to see how many players have joined the lobby. Unless there are 2/3 minimum already in the lobby, it’s not worth your while using a raid pass to battle.

Look out for pink raid eggs, these are level one and two. Level one you should have no problem battling on your own, level two might be a bit harder but still doable.

If you go onto pokemongohub.net they have guides on battling different raid bosses and what Pokemon to use to counter them.

If you want to solo raids, stick to level 1 or 2. Anything more, you will need help. Join your local discord thread. Just show up at a level 5 raid and there will be somebody there that will help you get signed in.
