Pokémon GO in association with Niantic Labs Inc. has announced that Rayquaza will be returning to 5-Star Raids starting Wednesday, July 31st, 2019. Along with this news, comes the announcement that everyone has been waiting for. Shiny Rayquaza will be available!

Trainers with teams consisting of high-level Ice-Type Pokémon should be able to duo Rayquaza fairly easily. Pokémon we would recommend in the battle are Mamoswine with Powder Snow/Avalanche, Glaceon with Frost Breath/Avalanche, and Weavile with Ice Shard/Avalance. Here is our Rayquaza Raid Guide.

Shiny Rayquaza is one of the more appealing shiny variants in the game. With its black body and bright yellow and pink highlights, this is a shiny you will not want to miss out on!

We cannot express enough how excited we are that Shiny Rayquaza is finally making its debut in Pokémon GO. To say it is a staff favorite would be a massive understatement. Aside from just plain looking really cool, Rayquaza is also still one of the most useful Pokémon in the game. We hope you all share in our excitement over Shiny Ray.
