Many Pokemon players hoped that the raid system would be much more interesting with mega raids, but it seems that this system is slowly becoming boring for players. This is proved by an analysis of a Pokemon Go player, proving that raid activity is decreasing from week to week.
The Raid system should make the game very interesting, there should be a lot of interaction, but it seems that Niantic and Pokemon Go need to change something to attract players to enjoy Raids again.
Here are some statements from Pokemon Go players who are unhappy and say they might return to the game if Niantic and Pokemon Go change a lot of things.
The wild spawns are boring, the bonuses are boring, mega raids are useless, the rest of the raids out are useless.
I’m enjoying being able to take a step back. I’m in Louisiana, so the fact that we have yet another hurricane coming makes not going out to play a much smarter idea anyway.
I noticed shortly after Genesect departed, the interest in raids sort of died off.
I am part of 2 local, quite big (50+ players), WhatsApp groups and can also report a huge decrease in raids being done. The groups were even more active during lock down with remote raids than they are since Megas were introduced. Not many player complain but they definitely don’t have any interest in them.
Even very active player with 30+ raids per week took Megas as the chance to take a break. Niantic will have a very hard time to get them back to there former level of involvement with the game.
Long story short. I really hope they make changes soon before people start to quit permanently!
Raids died hard here in my city after the first 5 days. Even the casuals figured it out. You can’t keep what you “earn”
What is your situation? Are you interested in being in a Raid and would you like to see some changes?
