How to beat Legendary Pokemon Rayquaza
Pokemon Go fans can now battle Legendary Pocket Monster Rayquaza.
The latest Legendary Raid was introduced as part of the most recent Gen 3 update. Rayquaza will be available to battle until March 16, so there’s plenty of time to capture it.
And the good news is that the Legendary Pocket Monster is relatively easy to defeat.
Rayquaza has a low defence and is weak against Pokemon with ice moves.
With this in mind, Pokemon Go trainers can use Jynx to do some serious damage.
Hardcore Pokemon Go fans might also want to consider the likes of Lapras, Walrein and Articuno, which all have double ice movesets.

Other new Gen 3 Pokemon from the Hoenn region include Salamence, Altaria, Metagross and lots more.
And in an unusual move, players will only encounter Gen 3 Pokemon until February 13.
“Alongside several Flying and Dragon-type Pokemon appearing in Pokemon Go for the first time, the Legendary Pokemon Rayquaza will descend from the ozone layer and become available in Raid Battles for a limited time,” reads a Niantic post.
“In celebration, Pokemon originally discovered in the Hoenn region will take over wild encounters until February 13.
“Don’t miss this unique opportunity to catch powerful Pokemon such as Salamence, Altaria, Metagross, and more!”
And that’s not all Niantic has in store for Pokemon Go.
Fans can also expect new Raid battles and different Pokemon to hatch from eggs. That’s on top of new in-store boxes, and a special Lure module bonus.
“With all of these Pokemon to catch and power up, it’s important to stock up on supplies,” Niantic continues. “Starting February 9, new special boxes–which include Raid Passes, Incubators, and Star Pieces–will be available in the in-game store until February 23.
“In addition, Lure Modules will remain activated for six hours until February 23! These items will be perfect aids in your Pokemon Go adventure.”
