Pokémon GO Offers Free Box for Shiny Tornadus Raid Error, Mistakenly Cites Thundurus on X

Trainers, there was an issue with Shiny Tornadus in Pokémon GO raids earlier this week. The Shiny form wasn’t available, disappointing many players. To apologize, Niantic and Pokémon GO are offering a Free Box as compensation. But if you used more than one Premium Raid Pass, you might not be too thrilled with what’s inside.

The Tornadus Raid Day didn’t go as smoothly as expected. Players used their Remote Raid Passes and other items hoping for a Shiny Tornadus, but it was missing from the game. Niantic and Pokémon GO have admitted to this mistake and announced compensation for those affected in the coming days. The day has come, and the compensation may not meet everyone’s expectations.

The Free Box is available in Pokémon GO until February 28, 2025. But there’s a bit of confusion. It was initially mentioned as compensation for a Therian Thundurus Raid, which hasn’t even happened yet. The Therian Thundurus Raid Hour is actually starting today, and we hope they won’t mess it up this time.

Just a heads-up! This Free Box is meant for trainers who participated in Tornadus raids while the Shiny version was turned off. If that includes you, don’t forget to claim your box.
