How to Defeat Primal Groudon Pokemon Go?
Trainers, Primal Raids are now live in Pokemon Go and you now have a chance to battle and catch Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre.
The very first Primal Raids in Pokemon Go are going live on February 18-19, 2023 from 10 AM-6 PM during the Pokemon Go Go Tour Hoenn Las Vegas event. Both Primals will be available to battle and catch, so let’s see what are the best counters and how to beat Primal Gorudon in Primal Raids.
“Encounter Primal Kyogre and Primal Groudon in Primal Raids during specific periods, beginning with Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn – Las Vegas. Primal Raids are similar to normal Raid Battles, but the Pokémon you challenge will be more powerful than those you may have encountered previously.
Trainers will also have opportunities during both Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn – Las Vegas and Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn – Global to complete Primal Surge Field Research, which may lead to increased opportunities to encounter Primal Kyogre or Primal Groudon in raids.
Ruby vs. Sapphire Challenge
As the earth and sea clash, which side will you stand with? All Trainers will be able to pick between a Ruby and a Sapphire badge. The team you pick will shape certain in-person Pokémon encounters!
Each hour, you can complete special Field Research on behalf of your team. Depending on which team completes more Field Research, all Trainers will see increased Primal Raids for either Primal Kyogre (Sapphire) or Primal Groudon (Ruby)—plus an increased chance of encountering additional wild Pokémon!
The badge Trainers pick at Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn – Las Vegas will carry over to the global event the following weekend.”
