In Pokemon GO, tonight is a slew of a Genesect Raid Hour: August 2022

This is the first time that Genesect will be available with the Chill Drive Drive, but it will be Shiny-capable during this raid rotation. Let''s get a look at tonight''s raid hour.

  • Use this rare raiding opportunity: The fact of the matter is that no matter how much Niantic prioritizes in-person exploration in, Remote Raid Invites and Passes have dramatically changed the game''''s raiding landscape. This summer has had an underwhelming set of raids, in my opinion, leaving many Trainers just casually remoting to raids here and there. However, Chill Drive Genesect gets a simultaneous Shiny release and overall release tomorrow, making it the first new Shiny Tier Five raid in quite a long stretch of time. All of this is to say that tonight''''s Raid Hour has a far higher chance of drawing in-person raiders than anything we''''ve seen in quite some time. If you want to use some of those in-person Premium Battle Passes you''''ve stored up, why not get out there and play?
  • Mega Evolution: As a dual Metal/Bug-type Pokemon, Genesect is doubly weak to Fire-type Pokemon. You can exploit this double weakness by Mega Evolving a Fire-type counter. The overall strongest counter to Genesect is Mega Charizard Y, but Mega Houndoom with Fire-type moves only also ranks high.

The rest of the Raid Hours for the month of August 2022 are:

  • August 17th, 2022 at 6 AM- 7 PM: Chill Drive Genesect
  • August 24th, 2022 at 6 AM- 7 PM: Zacian
  • August 31st, 2022 at 6 AM- 7 PM: Zamazenta
