This weekend is GO Fest 2021, a two-day celebration centered on capturing on the first day and raiding on the second day. You may still purchase a $4.99 GO Fest ticket, or a geographic version, for the two-day occasion, which includes additional perks. Let’s talk about the Raid bosses discovered in the Kanto region and how you can defeat them!

Kanto Region Raid Bosses

Although each initially introduced raid boss will be present for this occasion throughout the day, this guide will focus on bosses from the Kanto region. Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, and Mewtwo are among those who fall into this category. Keep in mind that you can only Mega Evolve one Pokémon at a time to assist you with all of these raids. Your Mega Pokémon will have an 8-hour lifespan once it has evolved.

Fascinated by anything horror and true crime. Crazy for open-world, MMORPGs - her first introduction to gaming was Metal Slug, Dragon Warrior, and Ragnarok Online. Played all GTAs and is anxiously waiting for the 6th installment. Inseparable from her fluffy furbaby, Teemo!
