How many Lugia raids are enough?

Given the small usefulness of Lugia in the game how many of them are you going after? I expect I will do the one free raid a day for him in hopes of Rare Candy but it seems like multiples of these are the most likely to visit the professor. If I am looking this wrong where or why should I keep an army of them?

I just got home from a trip so not sure how my area has been faring. I have a lot of passes...but I'm not going to lead any groups or drive too far. I already have a 3177 and a 3122 Lugia, however, I will take a shiny and a bit more candy.

I'll do one or two a day for the rare candy and the shot at a shiny.

Im trying to get one good one for each model. So far, I have a good Shiny but am looking for a good non.

Encountering shiny Lugia is great for the candy boost due to pineap.

I already got shiny and a 96% AND I just ran out of premium rares today and won't be buying any more any soon so I'll probably just do the free daily one until its over.

Don't know, I'll do as many as I can. Got 3 out of 4 so far, want a shiny. Never had a chance to raid Lugia before, I think he's an awesome mon. 100% IV would be nice, too :D

Personally, I think Lugia is one of the best mons in the game. His relatively low CP makes people underrate him, but he has great STAB moves to go along with his huge bulk.

As others have said, I'll do 1-2 per day for the rare candy, Lugia candy, and chance at a shiny, and when Lugia is gone again, I'll TM my best (or shiny) one to ES/SA, and power it up to go alongside my already powered ES/FS version.

I've done 25 Lugia raids and caught 3 shinies, but have yet to catch a really good one. I did see a 2053 (15/14/15), but it ran. :(

I'll probably go out for one more day of raiding since my friend still needs a shiny.

Since I maxed a Lugia back in October already I don't have much of a need to raid it. I'll spend my daily pass on them and raid harder towards the end if I haven't seen a shiny yet.

For me, it's one a day. Now that I have my shiny, I am not going to specifically hunt for more Lugia but since it's the best source of rare candy it's worth to spend my free raid pass on (that, or a Tyranitar which are always nice).

I'd go after at least 1... got no legendaries yet. Still can't find people in my area to raid with. The group is silent when there's a raid here, or it's usually just 1 person and if more don't come then nobody comes.

I've got enough Lugia's - including a Shiny. I've got a 96 and a 93, to go with my old 87 that I've powered up (thinking it was going to be the best Lugia I would ever get... argh. What a waste of Rare Candies!!). My daughter has a Shiny and a Regular Lugia.

Once my wife has her Shiny Lugia, I'm out of the Lugia raids.
