Palkia to debut in Pokémon GO over next month

As the Hoenn event comes to an end, Niantic has announced the next Legendary Raid Boss will be a new face to Pokémon GO. Palkia, a Water/Dragon type, is the next Sinnoh Legendary to try to capture.

A new arrival to raids will test your strength in 2019! The Water- and Dragon-type Spatial Pokémon, Palkia, will join Raid Battles across the world from January 29 at 1:00 p.m. PST to February 28 at 1:00 p.m. PST!

With the ability to warp the very fabric of space and enough power to take on Giratina, Palkia is a Pokémon that shouldn’t be underestimated. Be sure to assemble a team that includes Dragon- and Fairy-type Pokémon to take down this Legendary Pokémon before its special attacks overwhelm your team!

Palkia is set to be a strong Pokémon for Raids, but better as a Dragon-type attacker than Water – it cannot have both Fast and Charge Water-type attacks. As for trying to beat it, the likes of Rayquaza, Dragonite, Salamence, Latias and Latios are recommended – as well as itself! If it carries Draco Meteor as a Charge attack, you may want to use a Fairy-type such as Togekiss and Gardevoir.

Are you keen on Palkia, or impatient for Dialga?
