Although there are eight different Pokemon coming in tier five raids in Pokemon GO in February 2022 (a staggering eleven if you count the different Forms of Deoxys as different species!), Mega Raids aren’t getting the same treatment. While we’ve seen some newer Mega Evolutions lately, it looks like the February 2022 Mega Raid Rotation will be more about earning Mega Enery for Megas that have already been unlocked. Can I say “Mega” one more time in this intro? Let’s get into the Mega details.
Niantic announced the following details about Mega Raids in February 2022 during the official Pokemon GO Blog. This will include:
- From Tuesday February 1, 2022 at 10 a.m. to Tuesday February 15, 2022 at 10am: Mega Houndoom
- From Tuesday February 15, 2022 at 10 a.m. to Tuesday March 1, 2022 at 10am: Mega Ampharos
Outside of Mega Raids, Niantic notes:
Every Monday in February, a one-time purchase bundle containing a Remote Raid Pass and other items will be available in the Shop for 1 PokéCoin.
If that’s not enough, there will be plenty to do in level five raids. Here’s a program I wrote in my Shiny Deoxys announcement, pulling the details from the blog post:
