Pokemon Go: "A Colossal Discovery" Ticketed Event Announced, Regigigas Coming to EX Raids, Regi Trio Coming to Raids
Niantic just announced a small mountain of Regi-Related content that's set to drop in November, including the release of the Regi Trio in raids, the release of Regigigas in EX raids, and the release of the first ever Ticketed Event: A Colossal Discovery.
A Colossal Discovery
Perhaps the most exciting news in this update is for our first Ticketed Event; a feature that dataminers discovered in the game's data as early as September
Here is what we know about the Ticketed Event thus far:
A Colossal Discovery Release
Regigigas Coming to EX Raids
In conjunction with its availability in "A Colossal Discovery", Regigigas will become available to all players when it becomes our next EX Raid Boss starting this November.
Regigigas will replace Mewtwo in this capacity, becoming our 3rd unique species to join EX raids, counting all four versions of Deoxys as one Pokemon. This prospect should be far easier than it has in the past, as players have recently reported that updates to the game have generated more EX-eligible gyms than we've had since the system's inception.
We will have an analysis of Regigigas ready as we draw closer to its release, though hopefully it will see a moveset improvement before then.
The Regi Trio Returns to Raids
Regirock, Regice, and Registeel, are going to be making their return to raids this November in honor of the new ticketed system and the release of their Trio Master, Regigigas.
Regi-Trio Raid Rotation
It has been confirmed that The Regi Trio will need to be captured in order to complete the "A Colossal Discovery" ticketed event, so if you don't have the full trio yet and want to get Regigigas as soon as possible, plan on capturing them during this brief time period!
It has also been confirmed that all three members of the Trio will be availabe in their shiny formes, and that Shiny Skarmory will also be available during this period!
To cap all of this off, we also have 2x Incubator Effectiveness for the duration of this event, as well as an increase in specific Pokemon appearing in the wild and hatching from eggs.
