Rayquaza...

So I *finally* got a Rayquaza after trading with someone I got to Best Friends with. Unfortunately it wasn’t Lucky, and came out 10/15/8, level 20, 2013 CP.

Right now my team for Giratina is:
SC Gengar
Salamence 98
Dragonite x2 (another that needs powering up)
SB Mewtwo
B/C Tyranitar.

Should I bother investing in this Rayquaza? I could use better dragon types for my raid team but 10 attack IV seems a little underwhelming and I only have the resources to take it to level 27.

I would just use the Rayquaza as a place/way to store extra rare candy. Max revives are plentiful. You could always in-battle max revive your primo battle party and half dragon, half good/great counters isn't bad

Traded rayquaza a few weeks a go, got my first rayquaza ever, 93%, 13 atk nonlucky, not complaining here, was going through a similar thought process assuming it wasnt good.

ITs still a rayquaza, the highest neutral DPS (baring the trash that is deoxys), IV's arent really as important as people make them out to be on anything other than defensive ones for glass cannons, and thats still 10 IV's, its not terrible.

Rayquaza is infinitely useful, one of the few Legends I've maxed multiple of. That said, it IS positioned for a comeback, as it doesn't have a Shiny currently. You current team looks great. I'd stick with that and hope for a Ray return soon. That said, if you do choose to max Ray, you will also get a lot of use out of it during the next month, so it's very justifiable to do so.

Thanks! I think for now I’ll use it as-is for a B team should I need to re-enter and slowly dump rare candy into it for its eventual return, hopefully I get a good one then. Shiny Rayquaza is really cool looking, so that’d be nice

Agree, with the caveat that I suspect Palkia and Dialga are coming after Giratina (if not immediately after), so it should be months, not month.

I have 3, the level 35 one is the only one on the main team. Tyranitar wasn’t listed in the top counters but it has really good TDO so I have them on my B-Team
