  9. Floatzel is a Tier 3 Raid Boss in Pokémon GO (16082 Combat Power). Its best counters are strong Electric-types such as Raikou, Electivire, and Magnezone. Floatzel is also weak to Grass-type moves, so Roserade, Sceptile, Venusaur, and Kantonian Exeggutor, are also featured in its counter list. The following CP values are possible when caught in a post-raid encounter: 1323- 1396 CP for a regular Level 20 encounter 1655- 1745 CP for a Rainy weather boosted encounter (Level 25) Floatzel Base Stats Attack: 221 Defense: 114 Stamina: 198 Max CP: 2443 Floatzel Raid Guide Floatzel is a very easy Tier 3 solo even with a team of counters at level 20. So, even if you don’t have a full team yet, it’ll be very cheap to build one. Floatzel Raid Counters Floatzel Weakness Grass Electric Boosted by Rainy Supreme Counters at Level 30 – Ordered by TTW – No Boosts Raikou Thunder Shock Electric Wild Charge Electric Electivire Thunder Shock Electric Wild Charge Electric Roserade Razor Leaf Grass Grass Knot Grass Zapdos Thunder Shock Electric Thunderbolt Electric Magnezone Spark Electric Wild Charge Electric Sceptile Bullet Seed Grass Frenzy Plant Grass Luxray Spark Electric Wild Charge Electric Venusaur Vine Whip Grass Frenzy Plant Grass Breloom Bullet Seed Grass Grass Knot Grass Other Viable Counters Mewtwo Confusion Psychic Thunderbolt Electric Exeggutor Bullet Seed Grass Solar Beam Grass Tangrowth Vine Whip Grass Solar Beam Grass Exeggutor (Alola) Bullet Seed Grass Solar Beam Grass Jolteon Thunder Shock Electric Thunderbolt Electric Victreebel Razor Leaf Grass Leaf Blade Grass *Italics indicates Legacy.

The only question is, should you do it? Unless you need to add it to your Dex, probably not. The post Floatzel Raid Guide appeared first on Pokemon GO Hub. View the full article

  15. Until May 27th at 1 PM PDT, Uxie will be the Tier 5 Raid Boss in the Aisa Pacific Region. To help you build your best possible team of counters for this third of the Lake Guardian trio, we’ve put together a Heat Map. What’s a Heat Map? Most Raid Boss counter lists assume that you have maxed out versions of each of the Pokémon on it, but in reality, the majority of people do not. With our Uxie Heat Map, however, you can identify whether a lower level Pokémon will do more damage to the Raid Boss than a higher level one, due to it having a better and more effective moveset. An excellent example of this is how a level 25 Giratina (Origin Forme) with Shadow Claw and Shadow Ball will do more damage to an Uxie Raid Boss than a level 40 Giratina (Origin Forme) with Shadow Claw and Ominous Wind (given the same amount of time). There are several different methods for ranking Raid Boss counters, but the one we’ve selected to use is TTW, which stands for ‘Time-To-Win.’ This metric tells you which Pokémon would potentially beat the Raid Boss in the shortest amount of time, so if you’re short of Trainers, this will give you the best chance of beating Uxie before the time runs out. Not only that, but doing more damage can mean more Premier Balls with which to try and catch the Raid Boss! So to supplement our Uxie Raid Guide, here’s the Heat Map that we’ve made. Below, we’ll explain how to read and use the Heat Map to get the most out of your Raid squads: Uxie Heat Map Uxie Heat Map(Shoutouts go to Pokebattler.com for the data, Redditor u/Rayunge for his guidance in compiling the data, and GOHub Artist OrangeHeart for putting the data into infographic form) *This data assumes that you don’t know the moveset of the Raid Boss, that no moves will be weather boosted, and that you aren’t getting a friend damage bonus, so basically, almost the worst case scenario; unless the weather boosts the Raid Boss’ moves, things can only get easier. How to Use Our Heat Maps As detailed at the bottom of the graphic, to use a Pokémon GO Hub Heat Map, you first need to identify which of the listed Pokémon you have, whether they have the specified moveset (If not, you can of course use some TMs) and what level they are. As a rough guide: If your Pokémon is fully powered up (and you’re at Trainer Level 38 or above), it’s at Level 40. If it costs around 8000 Stardust to power up, it’s at about level 35. If it costs around 5000 Stardust to power up, it’s at about level 30. If it costs around 4000 Stardust to power up, it’s at about level 25. If it costs around 2500 Stardust to power up, it’s at about level 20. Try to identify your 12 best counters so that you can fill two Battle Parties because if Uxie defeats your first Party and you don’t want to use Max Revives, you’ll then have your next-best-optimized one ready to go straight back into battle. Once you know which of these Pokémon you have and roughly what level they are, it’s time to put them in order of best to worst; The numbers in the grid represent how long that counter, at that level, with that moveset would take to beat the raid boss if the counter had unlimited HP. So the lower (and greener) the number, the better. When you’ve ordered your Pokémon from best to worst, you can make a couple of battle parties so that you’re ready for every encounter you have with the Raid Boss. Checking the TTW of Other Counters If you need to check the TTW of a potential counter that isn’t listed in the Heat Map, here’s a quick rundown of how to do this: Visit the Raid Counters section of Pokebattler.com Scroll down until you find the Custom Raid section Choose the Raid Boss you’re trying to counter and the level of the counter you’re trying to find the TTW for. Leave the Weather set to ‘Extreme’ and the Friend bonus set to ‘Not Friends’ – this provides you with a (near) worst case scenario. Click ‘Find Best Raider’ and a list of counters will populate. At the top of the list of counters, there will be two small icons. One allows you to choose the metric (TTW, Estimator, etc.), while the other allows you to choose whether to group the counters by species or display all of their movesets singularly. Choose TTW on one and Single on the other. Find the potential counter you’re looking for in the list (there’s a ‘More’ button if it doesn’t appear the top 24) and compare it to the rest of your potential counters. Remember to check that you’re looking at the same moveset as your Pokémon has (or check which one has the lowest TTW and TM to that). If you need any further help on this, feel free to contact me using the links below. Best of luck in your battles with Uxie, and if you have any feedback, suggestions or changes you’d like to see in our future Raid Boss Heat Maps, please Tweet @GoHubQoncept or join us on the GO Hub Discord and tag @Qoncept with your comments.

  16. Until May 27th at 1 PM PDT, Mesprit will be the Tier 5 Raid Boss in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India.

  20. This week’s News Roundup sees a significant release of new content and events. The announcement of a Raid Week Event, including a Special Lapras Raid Day; the release of most of the remaining Sinnoh Pokémon; Blaziken getting the exclusive Community Day move Blast Burn and a new move Blake Kick. The announcement of the dates for Yokohama Go Fest, and two new Pokémon Mobile Games; the full worldwide release of Ingress Portal Nomination; and two mini-events for May 18th & 19th. It looks like Niantic has started to kick off an event packed summer. New Pokémon and Lures May 17th saw the release of the final wave of New Sinnoh Pokemon. The new list of Pokémon includes the following families: Cherubi, Burmy, Shellos, Hippopotas, and Gibble. Additionally, three new lures were introduced: Glacial, Magnetic, and Mossy. These lures attract certain Pokémon Types, plus they are the only method to evolve into the newly released Glaceon, Leafeon, Magnezon, and Probopass. This brings the remaining non-legendary or mythical Pokémon to Mime Jr. and Rotom. Lastly, a new Ground Charge Move – Earth Power was released. This move is a 2 Bar Charge Move with 100 Base Power. Side Note: the Eevee naming trick continues with Glaceon and Leafeon. Linnea -> Leafeon and Rea -> Glaceon. Extraordinary Raid Week It was announced that an Extraordinary Raid Week will take place May 21st – 28th, which will consist of three separate events. First off is the release of Shiny Bronzor. This Psychic Steel Pokémon has been somewhat rare, and increased spawns will help many finally evolve into Bronzong. Second is a shake-up of Raid Bosses; this list includes many fan-favorite Shiny Pokémon. Third and possibly most exciting is the announcement of a Lapras Raid Day! This event will operate the same as the Legendary Bird and Gengar Raid Days and take place on May 26th in the Asia Pacific Region and May 25th in the rest of the World. Lapras caught during the Raid Window will have the Legacy Moves Ice Shard and Ice Beam, plus Shiny Lapras was just released at Sentosa Safari Zone. Check out our Lapras Raid Counters Guide for help preparing for this special event. Lastly are the two Bonuses running during the event: 2x Raid Stardust and XP Blaziken CD Move Announced It was announced that Blaziken would follow the other Fire Starters and get access to the Exclusive CD Move Blast Burn. This powerful Fire move is the most powerful one available to Blaziken. It was also announced that starting on Community Day Blaziken will also gain access to Blaze Kick via TM. This is the signature move for Blaziken in the Main Series Games, and while not quite as good as Blast Burn, it is better than Overheat. Pikachu Outbreak & Yokohama Go Fest Niantic announced that Yokohama Go Fest will take place during Pikachu Outbreak this year! These events will take place August 6-12. Go Fest will require a ticket that will be available in a similar method to Chicago and Dortmund. Both Pikachu Outbreak and Yokohama Go Fest were huge successes last year, so this year should be no exception. Pokémon Rumble The announcement of Pokémon Rumble coming to mobile happened on May 15th came with its release in the Australian Google Play Store. Pokémon Rumble Rush is a free-to-start game in which you discover new islands and the various Pokémon that inhabit them. Each island also has its own Super Bosses that offer items to power up your Pokémon. This game joins Rumble Games for Wii, 3DS, and Wii U. DeNA Pokémon Game DeNA, a big player in the gaming world, has announced a new Pokémon mobile game in their financial report! This new mobile game will be a partnership between The Pokémon Company and DeNA. According to the financial report made available by DeNA, the game should be released this fiscal year, which lasts until March 2020. DeNa – pronounced D-N-A is a Japanese developer company that has previously teamed up with Nintendo for games such as Super Mario Run, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Fire Emblem: Heroes, and the upcoming Mario Kart Tour. Ingress Prime Portal Nominations Ingress Portal Nomination is now available to Agents across the globe! This feature uses the newly introduced Ingress Prime scanner, and after months of testing, has finally rolled out worldwide. This is exciting news for Pokémon Go because this Portal Nomination system is the same one used for PokéStop nomination; therefore, most new Ingress Portals appear in Pokémon Go. This means PokéStop nomination may be released worldwide sooner rather than later. Long Night of the Museums Announcement Another Mini Event, Long Night of the Museums, was announced for May 18th in Hamburg, Germany. This event features 4-hour lures, 2x Stardust, 50+ extra PokéStops, and increased Finneon spawns. VivaCalleSJ A second Mini Event, VivaCalleSJ, will take place May 19th in San Jose, California. This event will feature a Niantic Scavenger Hunt. This event in the past has included increased stops and spawns.

  24. Trainers! May is heating up with the start of Torchic Community Day! Below is our ever so handy CD Guide to get you the most out of this fiery day with event times, recommended items, exclusive moves, visuals and more! Torchic Community Day Guide Torchic Community Day Event Time Recommended Items for Advanced Players Community Day Box Torchic CP and IV & 100% Search String Shiny Torchic, Combusken, and Blaziken General Event Tips and Tricks Torchic Community Day Times Following Bagon CD, this event will have the same time pattern of happening from 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm in your local timezone on May 19th, 2019. Start and end times are not based on any specific time zone, I repeat, 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm your LOCAL time. Event Bonuses: 3-hour Lure Modules Do not set your lure until you see your first Torchic appear after 3 pm; otherwise, it will not last the entire 3 hours! **SEE more details below about the new, Special Lures (Glacial, Magnetic, Mossy) and their use during Community Day.** 3x Catch Stardust Gaining triple Stardust is a HUGE incentive to go out and catch them all! Be sure to have your Star Pieces running and your bag fully stocked! If you see any evolved forms of Pokémon, catch them too! 3x Stardust Chart for May Community Day Base Stardust Earned Community Day Bonus x3 +Star Piece Bonus +Weather Bonus Base Stage Evolution 100 300 450 562 2nd Stage Evolution 300 900 1350 1687 3rd Stage Evolution 500 1500 2250 2812 Here is an infographic overview of the event: Firechic…I mean, Torchic, is only boosted by Sunny weather, so lucky for most, it’s already blazing hot outside and boosted hot wings may be in your future. Blaziken’s Exclusive Move: Blast Burn w/ a side of TM’d Blaze Kick If you evolve Torchic all the way to Blaziken between 3:00 pm and 7:00 pm, it will learn the exclusive move Blast Burn. However, starting on Community Day, and anytime thereafter, you will be able to TM Blaziken’s signature charge move Blaze Kick. It’s a no brainer that you will want to hold on to Blast Burn since the recent nerfing of Blaze Kick. May it R.I.P. However, the option is still there to add Blaze Kick, via TMs after Community Day, if you wish. Make sure you do not have any connection or GPS issues while evolving, or else it might not get the move! Blast Burn fires up Blaziken in the standings of one of the best, if not the best depending on who you ask, Fire-type attackers along with Moltres and others… Be on the lookout for a full meta-analysis from GO Hub’s Meta-Master himself, Kratos, to be published REAL soon! Item Recommendations for Torchic Community Day Below is a checklist of items to have on hand before that three-hour grind: Poké Balls: Though they raise the catch rate on Community Day, and its little attack sequence is the cutest thing around, these Pokémon can still be feisty when it comes to getting them into the ball. Depending on how many spawns you usually find yourself with, you will need more than 100 Poké Balls and, if possible, that many Ultra Balls. Always Ultra Ball a shiny, they can run! Star Pieces: STARDUST, STARDUST, STARDUST! With this month’s bonus being 3x Catch Stardust, load up on your Star Pieces and keep them running the entire three-hours if you can. Nothing is more precious than that glittery powder these days and events seem to be one of the best ways to collect it! Berries: Razz, Pinap, and Golden Razz Berries are the essential berries to bring with you to these events. Razzes can help you grab the higher level, non-shiny, stubborn Torchic that do not want to be caught, while Pinaps help you maximize your candy gain from this event. Golden Razz should be used for shiny since you do not want them to get away! Because they should be shiny exclusive, you shouldn’t need to stock up on more than 20 (if you get lucky), though many of us have way too many from raids. Other items Lucky Eggs: Whether you are trying to hit lvl 40, double it, or even TRIPLE it, having a Lucky Egg running, if you have extra can’t hurt. However, if you are running low, you may wish to save it for the next XP event. Incense: To help you get more spawns and additional chances at shiny. Lures: They last 3 hours, use them! SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT LURES: A Niantic Representative has confirmed that the new Special Lures (Glacial, Magnetic, and Mossy) will last three hours if set during Community Day. However, we do want to note…although setting these exciting new lures for a longer lasting time would be helpful to you and your Community Day Attendees, we recommend you don’t choose PokéStops that don’t get the most action during your CD hours. These lures will affect your Torchic spawns. Community Day Box Item Quantity Ultra Balls 30 Lucky Eggs 3 Super Incubator 2 Star Pieces 4 Analysis Special Total Worth 789 Coins Saved Per Box 309 % Saved 39.16% I would definitely consider this box a step up from its predecessor, Bagon Day Box. Several of the same items can be found in this CD box but what I consider to be the upgrade is the addition of four Star Pieces versus the lone Lure Module you got last month. If you are on a budget, go for it! If you are able to splurge, I’d hit up one of the Extraordinary Raid Week Boxes, and you can find their analysis here. Torchic Search Strings Here is the search string you will want to copy and paste into the search bar when looking for possible 100% Torchic! 255&cp15,cp31,cp48,cp64,cp81,cp98,cp114,cp131,cp147,cp164,cp180,cp197,cp213,cp230,cp246,cp263,cp279,cp296,cp312,cp329,cp343,cp359,cp375,cp390,cp406,cp421,cp437,cp453,cp468,cp484,cp500,cp515,cp531,cp546,cp562,cp578,cp593,cp609,cp624,cp640,cp656,cp671,cp687,cp703,cp718,cp734,cp750,cp765,cp781,cp796,cp812,cp828,cp843,cp859,cp875,cp890,cp906,cp921,cp937,cp945,cp953,cp960,cp968,cp976,cp984,cp992,cp1000,cp1007,cp1015 You can also use our search string generator to make a string of your own or change ‘cp’ to whatever it needs to be for your country’s language. Level 30 Torchic CP Range 734 – 937 Level 35 (weather boosted) Torchic CP Range 812 – 1015 Shiny Torchic Family The shiny Torchic family is one of those shiny family that may make you look twice, so be on the lookout for that little shiny symbol. Although the colors of Torchic itself are reversed, it still looks like what this Trainer would consider “normal” for a baby chicken. Combusken and Blaziken take on a richer hue of red-orange in their shiny forms compared to their normal forms. To help with identification, below are our comparison tables. Normal on the left and shiny on the right. Regular Shiny General Torchic Community Day Tips and Tricks DRESS FOR THE WEATHER. It’s May; things are getting either getting very hot or very cold in the regions of the world! Take sunscreen and water, wear protective clothing, and plan accordingly for your event, spending some time indoors if you can or need to. If you want the event quests, do not complete quests from any PokéStop before the event. Vice Versa, if you hear a stop has a quest you want (cough, Spinda), then do not complete the event quest during event hours, it will not give you a quest after the event. Clear your box space and make sure you have the items you need. The worst thing in the world is that ‘You Pokémon Box is Full’ message amid a lure party of event Pokémon. Depending on how many spawns you usually see, you may need to clear up a lot of space in your bag to hold all these little dragons. Be patient about errors and set lures after the event has started. There will always be errors. Taking server load off with the staggered time helps with these errors but does not make them impossible to get. Catch shinies BEFORE 6 pm!!! If you get a shiny at 5:59, throw a ball as fast as you can, because if you catch it after 6, it will no longer be shiny. Make use of your items, and time yourself to reapply them every half hour, you want to get the most out of those bonuses! Most of all, have some fun. Hang out with friends. Trade when the event is over. Eat some good food. (May I recommend the hot chicken?) The opportunities are endless! The post Torchic Community Day Guide appeared first on Pokemon GO Hub.

  25. It appears that in light of Extraordinary Raid Week, Niantic has given us a great selection of boxes, including an Ultra Box featuring a whopping 20 Raid Passes. These are easily some of the best boxes as of late, and in this Box Analysis, we will go in-depth with just how good these boxes are. Box Analysis Items Special Great Ultra Raid Passes 4 6 20 Egg Incubators 2 – – Super Incubators – 3 4 Star Pieces 2 – 5 Lure Modules – – 4 Lucky Eggs – 3 – Incense – 2 – Ultra Balls – – – Total Price 480 780 1480 Analysis Special Great Ultra Total Worth 800 1515 3302 Coins Saved Per Box 320 735 1822 Coins Saved from Incubators and Raid Passes 220 420 1320 % Saved 40% 48.5% 55.2% % Saved from Incubators and Raid Passes 31.4% 35% 47.1% As usual, Lucky Eggs and Incense are priced at 63 coins each, to give us a better picture of how these boxes worth compared to buying these items in bulk. Star Pieces are 50 a piece to reflect their bulk price as well. At first glance, we can see that these boxes have some better % savings compared to boxes of the past, and there is a substantial increase in the number of raid passes in each box, especially notable in the Ultra Box. With the Adventure Box satisfying needs for Egg Incubators, it is nice to have boxes with a lot of raid passes. Making these boxes even better is the plethora of raid events that will be happening this month. There is not much to say in this box analysis about each box individually, only that these are great boxes to restock your raid pass supply. For free to play players wondering how many coins it takes to get their hands on a box, we suggest you check out the Coin Hoarder’s Guide. Like usual, we are not sure when these boxes are going away, but boxes typically last until the end or start of a new event. Adventure Box The Adventure Box seems like it is here to stay, but it still gets its own place in the analysis! If you have not been following boxes closely and you are not sure what an Adventure Box is, it is aimed at players who want to ‘Adventure’ and focuses on egg hatching! Because of that, these boxes focus on an increased amount of incubators but feature no raid passes. Items Quantity Super Incubator 13 Star Piece 5 Egg Incubator 4 Lure Module 4 Analysis Adventure Total Worth 3850 Coins Saved Per Box 2370 Coins Saved from Incubators 1720 % Saved 61.6% % Saved from Incubators 53.75% Overall from the Adventure Box Analysis, the % saved is amazing, and if you are itching for incubators, this box alone will let you hatch 51 eggs altogether, 12 in the normal and 39 in the supers. If you are not into raiding but enjoy hatching eggs, this box is the one for you. That concludes this Box Analysis, and overall, these boxes are worth picking up at least one! What do you say, are you going to grab one? The post Box Analysis May 2019: Raid Passes Galore! appeared first on Pokemon GO Hub. View the full article
