Autumn has fallen in the northern hemisphere. It's a perfect time to get outside and enjoy nature. Clean up your yard, take a hike, go on a picknick, or simply go fishing if time allows! And what's the point of fishing if not aiming for the big one? Well, how would you like to add a 21 footer to your fish-stories, because soon it will be the perfect time to go out and hook a Gyarados!

  • Mega Gyarados will take over gyms and be available in raids in high numbers
  • Players will be able to obtain up to 5 additional raid passes by spinning Gyms
  • Gyarados encountered after raids will have enhanced odds of being shiny

Shiny Gyarados is definitely a classic, so that alone is great incentive to raid for. While Mega Gyarados itself isn't the best Mega, it does have outstanding role compression and is an amazing budget option with outstanding time on the field, so having one ready to go is definitely a big help!
