As per information provided by Pokeminers, Regidrago was only partially developed on its release, which resulted in issues with its circle and model. However, it is expected that those problems will be or are resolved. During the launch, certain important settings were missing, such as camera and collision settings, appropriate model and scaling for Regidrago, and PVP camera settings.

PokeMiners also reported that Niantic updated Hoopa’s assets instead of Regidrago’s just an hour before the event began. Furthermore, there were temporary problems with Elite Raids, which made it impossible to join them and disappeared entirely shortly after. Additionally, there were some unusual problems with the Primal Raid music.

On March 10, 2023, the official Niantic Support Twitter account apologized, stating they had fixed a problem preventing trainers from participating in Elite Raids. To compensate for the inconvenience caused, they announced that an extra day of Elite Raids would be added on March 12 for players in the GMT +13 timezone. They expressed gratitude for the fans’ understanding.

But it appears that only players in the timezone mentioned earlier will be given the time extension, even though those in other regions also experienced peculiar problems with the Elite Raids.
