We're now in the ramp-up period for Pokemon Go Tour: Hoenn, and while the hype for Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre is very real, it seems like we're forgetting about someone, aren't we? That's right, Rayquaza is making its grand return as well! While Mega Rayquaza may still be somewhere on the distant horizon, it's always good to see the original Legendary Dragon rise, especially when it has a new move to sport as well!
