Pokemon Go battling Mega Latios and Mega Latias Raids doesn’t count towards completing ‘Battle in a Mega Raid’ tasks

Trainers, Mega Latios, and Mega Latias are the current Mega Raid Bosses in Pokemon Go, but it seems that battling them doesn’t count towards completing the “Battle in a Mega Raid” task. Why? Well, they forgot to make some changes to the code and players are not happy about it.

Mega Latios and Mega Latias run as Tier 6 Raids, not the usual Tier 4. They all seem to have forgotten to update this code, so someone has to remind them. Let me explain to make it clearer.

The code enables communication between the two features, in our case, Mega Raid and Special Research. When someone completes a task, it is automatically completed in the Special Research tab. Now, the Tier 6 Raids code does not match the ‘Battle in a Mega Raid’ code, due to Mega Latios and Mega Latias being Tier 6 and not Tier 4 as written in the code.

Does Mega Latias/Latios raids not count as a Mega Raid?

See now, challenging and battling Mega Evolutions in Pokemon Go is not easy at all, as it requires a bit more time and skills. We are talking about Mega Pokemon that are not easy to beat at all. And when you realize that this happened because of their mistake, and you can’t complete a certain step of a Special Research and can’t progress? Priceless.

Niantic and Pokemon Go must address it because it’s a serious issue. We will let you know if we hear anything.
