Niantic's Pokémon GO Raid battle challenge is over with Trainers managing to defeat Rayquaza more than Kyogre and Groudon combined. That means special rewards have now unlocked for Trainers around the world. "Trainers, The dust has settled on our legendary week of Raid Battles, and the ancient Legendary Pokémon Rayquaza has proven victorious!" announces The Pokémon GO team. There has also been a shakeup in Raid bosses for Tiers 2-4.

  • Raid bosses that prefer windy weather appearing more in Raid battles
