Everything You Need to Know About Primal Groudon Raid Hour in Pokemon GO

Niantic is giving Pokemon GO players a sneak peek of the upcoming GO Fest event with the Primal Groudon Raid Hour. This event allows trainers to acquire Primal Groudon and increases its spawn rate in raid locations. Here's everything you need to know to make the most of this event.

To participate in the Raid Hour, you'll need to stock up on Premium Raid Passes. While you can also join raids remotely, the price of Remote Raid Passes has increased, encouraging players to go out and play the game in-person.

It's important to gather healing items before taking part in multiple Primal Groudon raids. The creature's strong Charged moves can easily defeat your team, so having Max Potions, Super Potions, Max Revives, and Revives will help keep your Pokemon in fighting shape.

If you're a fan of Shiny Pokemon, you're in luck. The more Primal Groudon raids you complete, the higher your chances of encountering a Shiny Groudon. The odds of encountering a shiny variant of this creature are approximately 1 in 20 encounters.

In addition, collecting Primal Groudon Energy during the raids will be useful for carrying out a Primal Reversion on your Groudon or a shiny variant.

When it comes to countering Primal Groudon, be prepared for a tough battle. This Pokemon has a high Combat Power (CP) and is weak against Ground and Water types. To maximize your chances of defeating Primal Groudon, consider using Water-type creatures like Mega Swampert, Primal Kyogre, Kyogre, Mega Gyarados, or Mega Blastoise in your team.

Keep in mind that Primal Groudon is best tackled with a group. Attempting to defeat it alone would be extremely challenging, so gather a team of at least 4 to 5 trainers to increase your chances of success.
