I have never got a legendaries in my home country. Where i live is too in the middle of nowhere. All 3 of my legendaries have been from elsewhere in the world
Across both towns i have total people of about 1000 ish. 8 play Pokemon go.
While 8 is normally fine for a legendary raid, my group are very low level average of just 28.25, with minimum amounts of meta Pokemon near maxed out on anyone. My level is 34, and I have basically every meta Pokemon at level 30 or higher with good moves. I am the only one in my group to do this.
