- One lucky Pokemon GO player had an amazing encounter with a shiny legendary Pokemon during their first Remote Raid, even though paying for passes doesn’t guarantee rare encounters.
- Despite criticism, Niantic is keeping Pokemon GO active with events like Pokemon GO Fest and regular Community Days, giving players many chances to catch shiny Pokemon.
- The player’s lucky encounter with a shiny Xerneas at Pokemon GO Fest in London highlights the excitement and anticipation for upcoming events in New York and globally, where more players will share their experiences online.
One player of Niantic’s Pokemon GO shares their incredible experience of encountering a shiny legendary Pokemon during the first-ever Remote Raid they joined in the mobile game. Even though fans have to pay to get Remote Raids passes in Pokemon GO, this does not guarantee that they will encounter rare shiny pocket creatures, and this one player was very lucky to have done so.
Despite all the criticism and community issues Pokemon GO is currently facing, Niantic does not seem to be slowing down in its activities for the mobile game. Pokemon GO Fest 2023 is in full swing this month, with the London and Osaka legs already over, while the New York and global activities are slated for the latter part of August. What’s more, the game continues to host its regular Community Days and special events, giving players a lot of chances to encounter and catch rare Pokemon, especially beautiful shiny ones.
On Reddit, user Stonerthrowaway710 posted about the lucky encounter they had with a legendary Pokemon in the first Remote Raid they participated in for Pokemon GO. In the screenshot they shared, it showcased their encounter with a shiny version of Xerneas, the game mascot of the Nintendo 3DS title Pokemon X. According to the Redditor, they had decided to try their “hand at Remote Raids for the first time,” which means their first ever experience with the feature turned out to be incredibly worth it. They also mentioned that they were able to get into the Remote Raid during the London leg of Pokemon GO Fest, making their purchase for tickets and passes worth their prices.
Fellow players of Pokemon GO seemed to be very happy for the original poster, especially since encountering shiny Pokemon is already incredibly rare in the mobile title. Others wondered how they were able to encounter Xerneas, given that the legendary was not available in the game yet. However, one pointed out that Stonerthrowaway710 stated they were at London’s Pokemon GO Fest, and these types of events often give participants earlier access to Pokemon that will make its way into the game later on.
With the New York and global Pokemon GO Fest legs happening really soon, players should expect to see more interesting pocket creature encounters to be posted online by the fan base. Even though some players may not have the type of luck in Pokemon GO as this one, there will always be one or another who will happily share their experience with the rest of the game’s community.
Pokemon GO is available for Android and iOS.
