Burn Genesect Raid Hour: Tips for Hunting Shiny Genesect in Pokémon GO

Today is Burn Drive Genesect Raid Hour in Pokémon GO, where players have the opportunity to battle and catch a ruby red Shiny Genesect. From 6 PM – 7 PM on Wednesday, September 20th, Genesect will be appearing in Tier Five Raids all over the game, making it an ideal time to go on a hunt. Here are some tips to help you make the most of this event.

Genesect is a dual Steel/Bug-type Pokémon, which means it is weak to Fire-types. Using powerful Fire-type Pokémon, such as Mega Charizard Y and Mega Blaziken, will greatly increase your chances of defeating this Mythical Pokémon quickly. Team up with other Trainers to ensure coordinated attacks and maximize your chances of success.

When searching for the perfect Genesect with the best stats, look out for a Burn Drive Genesect with 100% IV. In normal weather conditions, it will have a Combat Power (CP) of 1916, while in boosted conditions, it will have a CP of 2395.

To catch Genesect, use the Circle Lock Technique to consistently land Great or Excellent throws. Combine this with Golden Razz Berries to improve your chances of capturing it. If you encounter a Shiny Genesect, it is guaranteed to be caught, so consider using a Pinap Berry to earn extra Candy.

There are several top counters to consider when battling Genesect. Mega Blaziken, Mega Charizard Y, Reshiram, and Shadow Moltres are among the most effective Pokémon to use in this raid. Other powerful Pokémon include Apex Shadow Ho-Oh, Mega Charizard X, Shadow Entei, and Heatran.

These tips should help you on your quest to catch a Shiny Genesect during Burn Drive Genesect Raid Hour in Pokémon GO. Stay up to date with all Pokémon GO news and updates by checking back on Bleeding Cool regularly.
