Wednesday 11th November 2020, Lugia will be the featured Rad Boss during Raid hour which will occur at 6pm Local Time. And remember, you can invite up to 10 remote raiders to the battles (A maximum of 5 per account).
To take down this Raid Boss, you will need a minimum of 3 High Level accounts and ideally maxed out counters and a Mega Gengar (ideally weather boosted). But we recommend a minimum of 4 or 5 players take down the raid boss to avoid disappointment. Like with any Raid, we recommend that you do the raid in good time in order to give you the best chance of taking it down, if you need to do it more than once.
Lugia is weak to Dark, Electric, Ghost, Ice and Ground type Pokemons.
Lugia has a new Charged Move of Aeroblast, which is a flying type move. This move has its uses in PVP within the Master League and at the time of writing puts Lugia at rank 8. It also is ranked 15 in the Ultra League. All in all, it is one of the top metas in these two leagues.
Aeroblast is classed as a Legacy move, which means that if you already have a 100% Lugia (Shiny or otherwise), you will need to use an Elite Charged TM to get access to this move. At present, Elite TM’s are only available as a reward in PVP and via a Community Day box.
