Shiny Entei is Coming to Pokemon GO raids on July 14


Trainers have managed to complete all of the GO Fest Dortmund challenges and unlock shiny Entei and a special Entei Raid Day event taking place on July 14th! The unlock flow was a surprisingly smooth experience, with almost two days left to spare. I guess we can all take a deep breath and relax now, at least before Yokohama happens and destroys us with 25 million research tasks per team!

The following unlocks will be available from July 9th until July 16th (1 pm PDT):

  • 3× Catch XP
  • 1-hour Lucky Eggs
  • 3× Hatch XP
  • 2× Raid XP

His majesty, Entei, will finally revisit the raiding scene with a fresh coat of paint. You can learn more about Entei’s move sets and counters on our Database website.

Raids Featuring Entei will only be available in a three hour window on July 14th, but they will benefit from double raid XP and triple catch XP. The exact time will still be announced, but we assume it will be similar to Raikou: 4-7pm local time. The shiny Entei rate should be similar to previous raid day bosses, somewhere in the 1 in 20 range.

This event overlaps with Armored Mewtwo raids that take place from July 10th through July 31st, which means that during the Entei Raid day, every egg blocked gym will first spawn the previous raid boss and an Entei afterwards. In reality, it’s likely you will do at least one or two Mewtwo Raids during the Entei raid event.
