Trainers, the next EX Raids are scheduled to go live on January 8 and January 9, and according to Niantic Support, Regiggas should be the featured EX Raid Boss.
The Legendary Pokemon Regiggas could be spawning on January 8 and January 9 in EX Raids as said by Niantic support on their official Twitter account, and according to rumors, this might be the last EX Raid featuring Regiggas and a new Legendary Pokemon will be taking over. There is no word which Pokemon might be the next EX Raid Boss, but according to rumors, we might see the début of the “Original One” Arceus.
Arceus has been added to the GM file, including all 18 forms/types and if you would like to take a look at all of Arceus’ forms, please see this link.
Previously, the Pokemon Company announced that Regigigas will be featured in EX Raid Battles only until January 7, 2020, (check out the latest post and the removed references about Regigigas). This means that a new Pokemon should be taking over EX Raids, but The Pokemon Company and Niantic Support are not given timely information, and that’s why they’ve ended up sharing the wrong info many times.
Here is an answer by Niantic Support to which Pokemon will be featured during the next EX Raids.
That being said, let’s assume that Regiggas will be staying with us for a longer time, so let’s take a look at the list of best counters against Regigigas below.
Regigigas Best Counters
- Lucario with Counter/Aura Sphere
- Machamp with Counter/Dynamic Punch
- Breloom with Counter/Dynamic Punch
- Hariyama with Counter/Dynamic Punch
- Toxicroak with Counter and Dynamic Punch
Good luck Trainers!
