Pokemon GO’s April Community Day may have just wrapped up, but it’s never too soon to dive headfirst into the next event for the mobile AR game. This week, players have another chance to takedown Latios and this time around there should be a shiny variant to collect, as well. So finish organizing your shiny Bagons and get ready for some Legendary Raids.

Latios isn’t the most powerful dragon-type in the current Pokemon GO metagame, but it is definitely still an important part of my rosters thanks to its dragon- and physic-type combination. Even if players already have enough copies of this Legendary, the added motivation of finding a shiny version is definitely going to be enough to make this week’s raid event very popular.

Be sure to consult our previous Latios counter guide before heading out to raid this week.
