Although Pokemon Go‘s Entei Raid is still underway, Pokemon Go‘s Raikou Raid starts tomorrow afternoon. This means any trainer still looking to catch an Entei has over twenty-four hours to do so. Remember, you can still have a chance to catch a shiny Entei. So message your friends and head out to the nearest raid while time lasts. If it is cold or you are concerned about the pandemic, you can do raids remotely. At remote and normal raids, you can still invite up to five trainers per account. Only ten trainers can remote into any given raid. Like the Entei raid, the Raikou raid is easy to complete.
Raikou, the Legendary electric beast, is often considered the second strongest of the legendary beast trio. This is due to Raikou being weak to ground moves similar. Some would argue that Entei is superior due to being a fire type that is super effective against bug grass, ice, and steel. Raikou is only effective against water and flying types. In Pokemon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, Raikou is typically the hardest to catch. Here is the information you need to know when taking on the Raikou Raid.
