How does Raid Day work with Proto-Kyogre?

Here's how to get Proto-Kyogre: If you have collected enough energy, you can trigger Kyogre's protomorphosis and thereby receive Proto-Kyogre. The protomorphosis behaves like a mega-evolution. If you successfully defeat a Proto-Kyogre, you will face a regular Kyogre at the end of the raid.

How much energy do I need for protomorphosis? To trigger the first Protomorphosis you need 400 Proto-Energy.

What bonuses are there in the event? During the raid day, the following bonuses will be active in the game:

  • An increased chance of encountering Kyogre in its Shiny variant
  • 5 additional Raid Passes when you spin the discs of Arenas
  • Remote Raid Pass limit increased to 20 (from Saturday, March 16, 2024 at 5:00 p.m. to Sunday, March 17, 2024 at 8:00 p.m.)

What is the best way to proceed on raid day? Due to the increased number of raid passes, the following process is recommended to use the raid day effectively:

  • Challenge and defeat Proto-Kyogre
  • Rotate the arena disc from the arena to get a new pass
  • Go to the next arena and repeat the process

What is the fastest way to defeat Proto-Kyogre? Proto-Kyogre is Water-type. This makes Electric and Grass-type attackers very effective against this Pokémon. If you're still looking for good attackers for the fight, take a look at our Proto-Kyogre counter guide.

If you are there with your friends to complete the raids, you should also use the team play function. This can give you an additional attack advantage.

Is Proto-Kyogre worth it? Proto-Kyogre is the absolute top water-type attacker for raids and arenas. So it's very worthwhile for you if you fight regularly. The optimal attack combination here is Cascade as a quick attack and Origin Wave as a charging attack. However, Origin Surge requires you to use a Top Loaded TM to obtain it.

What's in the optional ticket? You can also purchase an optional ticket for the raid day in the shop. This costs $5 (so it will probably cost €5) and offers you the following benefits:

  • 8 additional raid passes when rotating arenas
  • Increased chance of receiving special candies XL
  • 50% more experience from raids
  • Double stardust through raids

What do you think about the raid day? Will you take part and secure the rare Proto-Energy for Kyogre? Or have you already had enough and are you on the hunt for a Shiny Kyogre?
