    Nothing prepares you when you see the Rayquaza you're about to catch appear with black scales and a burst of sparkling light. Woohoo!

    Thankfully, Niantic made it so that one's a guaranteed catch (shiny legendaries are). But you still have to throw the ball at it!

    And remember to use a regular Pinap.

    Finally snagged a Sinnoh Stone from the weekly research reward. Dumped it, a bunch of stardust, and a charged TM into my shiny Piloswine and now I have a good shiny Powder Snow/Avalanche Mamoswine. I'll be hunting more Swinub for candy to buff my boy up even more.

    I do feel bad there was a sweet older woman at the raid that didn't get the deoxys her second time missing the catch. I didn't think it was that hard to catch, but I've been f'ing lucky so I kept my mouth shut.

    Wow, EX mons aren’t guaranteed catches????

    I feel like all my M2s and Deoxii were all first-ball catches...

    In my experience, about 1/2 to 2/3 of the EX raid participants end up with the Pokemon, maybe a bit more. They are generous but its not a sure thing.

    What if you miss all your throws real bad

    Then the legendary leaves!

    There's at least one tale of a dude showing off the shiny legendary and trashing his rolls until the last, and then completely flubbing that last throw.

    So Pinaps (or if you're having trouble, Nanabs) are your friend against shiny legendaries.

    I didn't realize that shinies had a guaranteed catch until I was running around with those folks last week and someone mentioned it, but from what they were saying it sounded like it was just on the first throw. Is that not the case?

    Nope, they will not run unless you run out of balls, period.

    There's still loads of urban legends about this game that refuse to die. I ran into some people who STILL think that alternating between golden razz and nanabs will somehow boost your chances of catching a legendary.

    Apparently we're getting three weeks of special bonus stuff, starting Sept. 2. Best guesses from the vague teaser:

    Week one: Pokemon never in eggs before will appear in eggs, probably including Corsola and Heracross.
    Week two: Deoxys in raids.
    Week three: Worldwide appearance of Gen 1 regionals, along with the first wave of Gen 5.
