The new Shiny Rayquaza introduction includes video promotion, new artwork, hilarious user reactions


The PokemonGoApp Twitter account released a series of tweets that promoted curiosity and intrigue for Trainers. However, the prompts give way to a series of clues that introduces back Rayquaza as a level 5 raid boss but includes a shiny variant this release.

Niantic, not to outdo itself, also released a video promotion on Twitter that includes an HD video of shiny Rayquaza rushing out of the Earth’s atmosphere back down to Earth. Does this remind anyone of Shenron from Dragonball Z?

While we’re extremely excited for this promotion, other Pokémon trainers hilariously react in all fashions on Twitter to the announcement:

User @PeloPoGO shared fantastic phone backgrounds for extra shiny luck at the raids:

And finally, the new artwork has us rethinking our design choices for ourselves. Anyone down to redecorate for the shiny effect? We think this is frame worthy.

  1. Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite
    a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take
    care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!
