Rayquaza returns to raids for a limited time!


A Special Raid Weekend featuring Rayquaza will be happening during the first-ever Weather Week event! Rayquaza, the Sky High Pokémon, is known to feed on water and particles in the atmosphere. Sounds like it’ll be eating well during this rainy and windy event!

Date + Time

Saturday, March 27, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. to Sunday, March 28, 2021, at 8:00 p.m. local time


  • Rayquaza will be appearing in five-star raids alongside Therian Forme Thundurus.
  • Rayquaza encountered and caught during this time will know the attack Hurricane.

Rayquaza is known to only seldomly descend to the ground, so you won’t want to miss out on this chance to catch this Legendary Pokémon while it’s drawn in by Weather Week!
