After a rocky start in a 3-Star Limited Time Raid, a Pokemon Go player prevailed at Water Festival 2022 with some insane shiny luck.
Pokemon Go Raids are what some players would consider mobile monster collector endgame content. These high-level battles require multiple trainers to team up against powerful Pokémon.
Also, raids are often the only way to encounter the shiny versions of certain Pokemon. And since the odds aren’t in players’ favor, Trainers typically have to complete numerous raids to find the Shiny they’re looking for.
And with the rocky nature of wireless internet, losing your connection on a heist can be damaging. However, one player got lucky and was blessed with a Shiny by Pokemon Go even after turbulent connectivity.
The player catches Shiny Drip Lapras after a raid crash
During the Pokemon Go Water Festival 2022, players can finally face Lapras with a scarf, also known as Drip Lapras. The catch is that you can only encounter this costumed Pokemon by participating in three-star raids.
Three-star raids aren’t too difficult, and some players can even complete them solo. However, Reddit user CKozoil14 had no intention of fighting connectivity issues along with the sleek Lapras.
The user reported that it took 10 minutes to get into the raid, followed by a barrage of network error messages. CKozoil14 also stated that the Pokemon went missing when trying to catch it, but the Shiny Fly with Lapras was found in its storage box.
CK was lucky for several reasons. After completing a raid, you have a slim chance of finding a Shiny. Even if you find one, you’ll have a limited number of Premier Balls that you can use to catch it. Raid bosses often have a low catch rate, making each throw very important.
It can be disappointing and frustrating not catching a raid boss, especially a shiny one. All the more it would be a loss due to technical difficulties.
Luckily, CKozoil14 has caught on and has an amazing shiny hunting history to go along with his purple dripping lapras.
