5. Forces of Nature trio

Personally, I’ve nothing in opposition to Landorus, Thundurus, and Tornadus. Whereas they don’t seem to be precisely essentially the most attention-grabbing Pokémon on account of them being apparent reskins of one another, these genie-esque Legendaries have been of little or no curiosity to the neighborhood in comparison with Unova’s different choices of Reshiram, Zekrom, Kyurem (not less than at first), and even the Swords of Justice trio.

4. Mega Blastoise

Mega Blastoise raids have been annoying tough in two methods. First, it was the tankiest Mega Pokémon by far, which meant that extra trainers have been wanted and that it could take fairly some time to take down, decreasing the quantity of Mega Vitality earned. Second, curiosity in Mega Raids was and is low in comparison with Tier 5 Legendary raids, which meant that even getting sufficient folks to affix was, particularly towards the top of Mega Blastoise’s overlong keep in Pokémon GO, fairly tough.

3. Darkrai the second time

Niantic shot themselves within the foot right here. They introduced Origin Forme Giratina with a Shiny launch for the primary half of October and teased a “shock” raid boss for the Halloween occasion. Seeing as Origin Forme Giratina was one of the vital coveted Legendaries within the sport, the truth that the “shock” boss was Darkrai, which had already had its Shiny launched earlier within the yr, left Pokémon GO trainers questioning why Niantic obtained them hyped for no cause.

2. Heatran

Heatran’s first keep in January 2020 was terrific. It had been gone from raids for a very long time and we lastly noticed its Shiny launch in Pokémon GO. Then, after a month-long keep, it… got here again once more for an additional three weeks, just some months later. Why? The world might by no means know.

1. Kyurem

Then comes essentially the most baffling choice within the historical past of Legendary raids in Pokémon GO. When the dragons of Unova — Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem — have been launched, they every had an roughly three-week run in raids. Throughout Kyurem’s run, Distant Raid Invitations have been launched. Niantic promised that those that missed Reshiram and Zekrom on account of Invitations being delayed would have one other likelihood quickly. Then… in December, they simply featured Kyurem once more. This time for a whole month. Who might this have been for? Was it simply squeezing in an Ice-type Pokémon to theme the raids for December? After an thrilling autumn of 1 and two week stays for a wide range of bosses, being left with Kyurem for a whole month and 5 raid hours is sufficient to completely shut down curiosity in Tier 5 raids for a month.
