Hi peeps, you maybe able to help.
So I got this for my daughter for Xmas who loves pokemon the issue is i missed out on pokemon when i was younger so I have no idea.

Now she's come out of mount moon and into carelion (probably spelled wrong) now she cant go anywhere.
She doesn't have the facility to cut wood and she missed the boat thing but got the ticket. I have just let her get on with it but its got to a point where she can't do much. Any suggestions

Only just stumbled across the thread.

I only play PoGo for collecting the Pokémon, not a big raider or anything... I only raid when an event/research insists on it.

On a FB group which I lurk, I see people talking about Ex-Raid which are invitation only... what actually Is an ex-Raid?
EX Raid passes are only handed out at eligible gyms when battling any level raid bosses. Usually the gym will tell you if they are ex gyms or not.

If you battle them regularly at these gyms, then the chances of gaining a ex raid pass increases.

As you mentioned, its an invitation only where you get a chance to battle the EX raid boss , which is currently a Deoxy.

Previously, its been Mewtwo and EX passes were the only chance you have to battle and catch it.

When people are invited to an ex raid, theres a specific 45 mins window where you can battle the raid boss and usually those who are invite arriving 5-10 mins before the alloted time and if there is a large group, people tend to arrange themselves into teams, otherwise everyone just jumps in.

Like the Community events, its a good way to know other trainers in the area and get to know each other.

Hope this helps

This sounds like Lets Go Pikachu/ Eevee on the Switch?

If so, might get more help on that specific thread, but my boys have this too but not really sure where they're at

Some good info there thanks. I’d need to try and blag an invite from someone on the FB groups as like I said, I rarely raid... but MewTwo is the only Mon from Gen 1 I need to complete Gen 1.

My next problem is I don’t actually have a clue what Pokémon/attacks are best against raid bosses. I’ve just watched a vid where someone solo’d A deoxy... I can barely beat lvl3 boss on. My own:laugh:

Unfortunately you've missed out on getting Mewtwo via EX-Raids, the only way you can obtain one now is through trading. As it's a Legendary it'll cost a lot of stardust so you'll want to be Ultra or Best Friends with the person you're trading with.

In regards to raids, Just use google to find out the best counters to use, there's plenty of sites. You can't usually solo bosses above lvl3. Whilst it is possible to beat some level 4's under the correct conditions, it's not usually the case. Apart from the latest Doxey form it's never previously been possible to solo an EX Boss.

Don't be too worried about EX Passes as eventually that Pokemon should appear in raids for a very limited period, though we are talking ages from now.

Seems like Kyogre and Groudon are proving popular as not seen people in the local group so active for some time now!

Need a few more before they leave

Thought I'd revive this post to say I'm done with Mesprit !

Caught about 4 now on each of our 3 accounts.

So hard to catch and they are pretty useless

Rather do Ttar raids currently

How's everyone else doing ?

Caught a few for both my accounts too. Deceptively close, so hard to get even great throws. Still plugging away

0 out of 3, I thought I was throwing at least good or greats but nothing seemed to register. So I traded for one and haven't tried since.

Finally got a few decent decent Magikarp and Magmar after the New Year event but can't decide which to evolve. Any help gratefully received!

Magikarp:
94 IV 116 CP
84 / 211
91 / 138

Magmar
84 / 1400
88 / 1945
91 / 1214
91 / 741 (Magby)

The ones in bold are the 'mon I'm leaning towards evolving.

Magikarp are fairly common near my workplace so I could slowly level up the lower CP one. My current Gyarados is only IV67 so it'll soon catch-up. Only problem is I don't have much Stardust and don't play enough to accumulate the 100k+ I'll need to max it out any time soon.

Magmar: I was all set to evolve my IV84 Magmar that I've raised from an egg before the Red event, now I can't pick who gets to continue the journey and who gets melted down into candy.

Its quite hard to advise. For me I generally only level up high IV pokemons (above 90%) and only the ones that are useful in raids.

I remember reading somewhere that there isn't that much difference between IVs damage wise so if you're short on stardust just evolve the one with the highest CP as that will be the cheapest to max.
