Kanto Starter Raid Battles

Event Duration & Details

Event DurationFebruary 27th - March 2nd, 2020

Alongside the special Mewtwo raid event, you'll be able to encounter the first 2 evolutionary forms of Kanto starters all across the Wild Area. Unlike Mewtwo, the Kanto starters are catchable! It's worth noting that there is currently no other way to obtain Bulbasaur and Squirtle in game, so make sure to get them!

Not A Guaranteed Catch

It seems that even when playing alone or as the host of a given raid battle, you will not always necessarily catch the starters. Go into the raid battles with this mindset to avoid disappointment!

Get Hidden Abilities


▲Hidden Ability: Rain Dish (The Pokémon gradually regains HP in rain.)!!

The Kanto starters appearing in the Wild Area also have a chance to have their Hidden Ability! This is an extremely rare opportunity, so it's worth spending some extra time to get these.

Relatively Low Spawn Rate

Since there are several raid battle events going on at the same time, it's currently somewhat difficult to target Kanto starters specifically. Keep this in mind if you run out of Watts.

Rewards List

Charmander Line Drops Flame Orb


▲Items received: Exp Candy M x2, Exp Candy L x3, Dynamax Candy x1, Flame Orb, Pomeg Berry x2!!

Charmander and Charmeleon have been confirmed to drop the rare Flame Orb item, in addition to the usual Berries and Exp Candy. It's not a 100% chance, but it's certainly faster than grinding out the Pokemon tournament!

EV Decreasing Berries Drop


▲Items received: Tamato Berry x3, TRs: Scald, Surf, Hydro Pump!!

By doing Kanto starter raids, you will be able to obtain large quantities of EV decreasing berries! Since you can't really procure these berries in large quantities usually, this is a great opportunity to stock up!
