Shiny Rayquaza Coming to Pokémon GO

Exciting news for Pokémon GO players: Shiny Rayquaza will be making its debut soon! Details have been posted to the official site:

Rayquaza is said to have lived for hundreds of millions of years in the ozone layer, descending only to put the clash between Kyogre and Groudon to rest. Seeing as the Sea Basin Pokémon and the Continent Pokémon have both been active recently, it’s no surprise that this normally reclusive Pokémon has reappeared in their place!

Date + Time

  • Rayquaza will appear in five-star raids from Wednesday, July 31, 2019, at 1 p.m. until Monday, September 2, 2019, at 1 p.m. PDT (GMT −7)


  • If your luck soars sky-high, you may encounter a Shiny Rayquaza!

Encountering a shiny is not a guarantee, so you’ll want to raid as much as possible during the event! What shiny Pokémon would you like to see next in GO? Leave your answer in the comments!
