'Pokemon Go' is finally fixing Raid Battles

'Pokemon Go' is finally fixing Raid Battles”

Along with a total overhaul of the gym battle system, Raid Battles were also introduced into the game, which gave players the ability to cooperate in real time in order to take down Raid Bosses. And the special battles will now start at a time where the hosting Gym usually sees the most activity. The only way to get hold of the legendary Pokemon Mewtwo, EX Raiding is a process that has up until this point been buggy and relatively disorganized, but new changes from developer Niantic should be working to improve the system for all players.

Those trainers who have already completed a high number of regular Raid Battles are also more likely to be invited to an EX Raid, as a thank you for their dedication.

Players with a high-level gym badge at a particular gym or with a large number of raid battles completed overall are more likely to receive invitations, and EX Raid battle times will now "take into account popular Raid Battle times at that Gym", according to the post.

A lot of the game's features bring inherent frustration - missing an EX raid battle, getting lousy potions or gearing up to fight raid bosses only for them to run away, for example - so these changes should iron out these irritations and put the focus back on the task at hand, catching 'em all. If an EX Raid is canceled, players will receive Stardust and Premium Raid Passes as a consolation. The reason we made a decision to have EX Raid Battles primarily take place at Gyms located in parks and at sponsored locations is to ensure the locations are easily accessible to Trainers in the area. As far as these specific locations, they were chosen to make sure they're easier to get to. With the implementation of these features, we'll be removing the field-test label and considering this the official launch of the EX Raid Battle feature. In addition, Fast and Charged Technical Machines will now drop at an increased rates when players defeat a Tier 3 (or higher) battle, and Stardust will be granted to all participants whether the Raid Battle was successfully completed or not.

All raids will now receive the raid-exclusive Golden Razz Berry, which greatly increases your next catch chance.

The addition of Stardust rewards for participating in a Raid Battle will help Trainers continue to power up the Pokémon they need to take on even more powerful Raid Bosses.

"We want Trainers to walk away from Raid Battles feeling like they've earned some fantastic rewards, even if the Raid Boss flees", the developer said.

But perhaps the best news is that Magikarp will return to Tier 1 Raid Battles.

Pokémon GO is available on iOS and Android.
