In need of a few additions to your Pokédex? If you missed out on Regirock, Regice, and Registeel before, you’ll have another opportunity to capture them in Raids! Starting Friday, November 1st, at 1 p.m. and running until November 4th at 1 p.m. PT, you’ll have your chance to get ’em when battling in five-star Raids.

To help you in battle, Niantic is adding Pokémon in the wild that’ll make it easier to defeat the powerful ‘mon. Geodude, Magnemite, Swinub, Aron, and Spheal will all be more frequently seen around your maps, so make sure to take advantage of their availability!

Aerodactyl, Shuckle, Sneasel, Skarmory, Snorunt, and Beldum will also be hatching more from Eggs, giving you another leg up on the event.

If you’re lucky, you might also come across a Shiny Skarmory, Shiny Regirock, Shiny Regice, or Shiny Registeel.

As a bonus during this period of time, you’ll receive 2× Incubator effectiveness.

And that’s not all! Niantic is throwing in another crazy-big Pokémon. Sinnoh region’s very own Regigigas is being introduced through Colossal Discovery — a Special Research story event — giving you a chance to acquire the beast. Purchasing the newly introduced Special Research Tickets (that cost a whopping $7.99 a piece) will open a variety of tasks for you to complete in order to earn Regigigas. Doing so means you’ll obtain the Pokémon before it’s added to EX Raids in November.

Is it worth it? That’s up to you to decide — how badly do you want Regigigas?

You can read up on all the details regarding the Raids, the overall event, and the new tickets by checking out Niantic’s recent Colossal Discovery update page.
