LAST UPDATE: It does work, shows you the different cp etc, however when you do catch it, it goes back to its original CP. Was a interesting topic to study however. You are still able to reroll the stats of the raid capture pokemon, but not the one you are given when caught. RIP!
Hey. I've just realised in a couple of videos & from personal glitches that sometimes you error out of the bonus catch or you restart your app and you are able to go back into the bonus challenge. However, the pokemons CP is different each time it does happen?
Does this mean we could restart the game and farm 100% perfect pokemon? I am going to try it out tomorrow to see if it works, but if it does.. this needs to be fixed because it defiantly can be exploited super easily
It'd be ultra interesting to see it work like that too. I'm suprised not really anyone else has noticed this either
Update: My theory is correct. It works.
To do this you need to make sure that you have enough time left on your raid timer. DO NOT do this whilst your raid timer is about to expire, because once it does expire, if you havent caught it, you wont be able to.
- Once in the bonus challenge, check the CP, make sure it isnt the max cp you can get (check pokemon go hubs list here)
- If you want a better CP, or if you are shiny hunting Magikarp, go ahead and restart your game.
- Click on the gym with the raid you want to farm, and wait for the Bonus Challenge to initiate.
- If the CP isnt what you desired or your sexy golden magikarp is not on the screen, repeat the steps 2-4.
A video of me doing it can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNoStF8qUBA&feature=youtu.be
I shall also be making a video on how to do it with visual steps also.
