Flavor of the Month - November 2018

The Ghost-Dragon, Giratina takes center stage with its Altered Forme until November 20th. The Renegade Pokemon is weak to Dragon, Ghost, Dark, Fairy, and Ice-type attacks, which includes many top-tier attackers. For those attending Deoxys EX Raids, consider our September and October 2018 Flavor of the Month to be active.

Flavor of the Month - September & October 2018

The mighty Mewtwo takes to traditional Tier 5 Raids this month and will be around till October 23rd. Use Pokemon with Dark, Ghost, and Bug-type moves to take on the powerful Pokemon, but tread carefully trainers. Mewtwo has been beefed up to be stronger than any time you've faced him before, and can still pack quite a punch.

It's a boy! And a girl! It's twins! Latias and Latios are topping gyms until June 5 (they switch regions on May 8), so you'll be using a lot of Dragon and Psychic counters. In addition to the "core" attackers marked below, you may also find yourself using some of these over the next month.

Flavor of the Month - March 2018

* Legacy Rock Throw Omastar only

What’s old is new again. With a buffed Sky Attack and the possibility of being shiny, Lugia is back! Since Lugia lacks double weaknesses and has a high Defense, it’s the beefiest Tier 5 boss to date. This time around, trainers are likely to have better counters than when Lugia first appeared. These are some of the Pokemon that will help carry you to victory for the next few weeks of Lugia.

Flavor of the Month - February 2018

Rayquaza’s arrival and its status as the new DPS champion caused a lot of excitement, and its double weakness to Ice also caused trainers to dust off Ice attackers they may have relegated to the shelf. Fittingly, we’re highlighting the Ice Pokemon that most trainers have probably powered up a bit to take on this latest legendary boss.
