How to Prepare for Primal Kyogre Raids in Pokémon GO Fest Global 2023

The highly anticipated 2023 Pokémon GO Fest Global is finally here, and trainers have a chance to catch rare Legendary Pokémon during this exciting event. One of the most sought-after Pokémon is Primal Kyogre, which will be available in Primal Raids. Whether or not you have a paid ticket to GO Fest, this is the perfect opportunity to add this rare Pokémon to your roster. But before you embark on your Primal Raid, it's essential to be fully prepared.

Primal Raids in Pokémon GO are known to be incredibly challenging, so it's crucial to gather a group of trainers to maximize your chances of success. Primal Pokémon, including Primal Kyogre, can have a CP of over 90,000, so bring your strongest Pokémon to the raid. If there aren't many trainers in your raid lobby, you can also invite friends using Remote Raid Passes to increase your odds. Additionally, make sure to prepare your team beforehand to avoid wasting time in the lobby.

To effectively counter Primal Kyogre, focus on using Pokémon with Grass and Electric-type moves. These are its weaknesses, and exploiting them will give you an advantage. Since Primal Kyogre is a Legendary Pokémon, it's important to bring out your most powerful Pokémon to stand a chance against it. Here are some top counters to consider:

– Mega Sceptile with Bullet Seed and Frenzy Plant
– Kartana with Razor Leaf and Leaf Blade
– Mega Rayquaza with Dragon Tail and Dragon Ascent
– Mega Venusaur with Vine Whip and Frenzy Plant
– Shadow Raikou with Thunder Shock and Wild Charge
– Xurkitree with Spark and Discharge
– Shadow Magnezone with Spark and Wild Charge
– Zarude with Vine Whip and Power Whip
– Shadow Electrivire with Thunder Shock and Wild Charge
– Mega Gallade with Lock Kick and Leaf Blade
– Shaymin with Hidden Power and Grass Knot
– Shadow Zapdos with Thunder Shock and Thunderbolt
– Shadow Luxray with Spark and Wild Charge

For dedicated trainers, catching a Shiny Primal Kyogre is a possibility during the Primal Kyogre raids. However, keep in mind that Shiny Pokémon are rare, and it may take multiple raids before encountering one. Stock up on potions and revives to keep your team in top shape throughout the Global Pokémon GO Fest experience.

Remember, Primal Kyogre and Primal Groudon will only be available in Primal Raids for a limited time, so don't miss your chance to catch these powerful Pokémon!
