Mega Garchomp Raid Day Info:
Mega Garchomp’s Raid Day debut is on Saturday, November 11 2023, from 2 PM to 5 PM Local time throughout the world. Players can look to plan out a get-together to team up and hit the Mega Raids at their local gyms for the event.
As players would know, Mega Evolution in Pokemon GO brings with it many unique bonuses and more and so Mega Garchomp will be bringing out some worthwhile bonuses with it, such as boosts to Dragon and Ground Type moves, a boost to the catch-rate and the candy gathering rate of Dragon and Ground Type Pokemon, and much more.
There are also a few Event Bonuses for Garchomp’s Raid Day that you’d want to know about.
Remote Raid Pass Limits will be increased on Raid Day from 12 PM onwards to accommodate 10 Remote Raid Passes for each player.
Moreover, players will be able to get 5 free Daily Raid Passes instead of the usual 1 Per Day on Raid Day by spinning Gym Discs.
Also, The Shiny Version of Garchomp will also be available from Mega Raids and will have an increased chance to be so.
This is the perfect time and chance for players to get Mega Garchomp for their Pokemon roster. They will be able to obtain all the items that’ll allow them to clear and participate in multiple raids during Raid Day between 2 PM and 5 PM. Mega Garchomp will be a formidable foe however, so players will have to prepare a strong team, recommendedly one that has Ice Type Pokemon as Garchomp is super weak to Ice Attacks. The 170 Base Attack Stat For Mega Garchomp is very scary, and it might pose some one-hit K.O.s as if it’s completely normal, so think up about what to bring to Mega Garchomp Raids. After you acquire it, you can do the same to your opponents.
Gather up plenty of Mega Energy by doing as many Mega Garchomp Raids as you can and you might even be lucky enough to grab a Shiny Garchomp.
