The cover monster from Pokémon Pearl, Palkia, has started being noticed in Raid Battles all over the world. This means that a new Legendary Pokémon has just been added to this popular mobile game.
How to catch Palkia
We will be able to see this new Pokémon until the end of next month. Palkia just made its debut and it will appear as a Raid Boss until the 28th of February. So that will give players around a month to capture it. Following Giratina, Cresselia and Heatran, Palkia is the fourth Generation 4 Legendary Pokémon that appeared in Pokémon Go until the present time.
If you want to know how to catch Palkia, this is what you have to do. You need to find other players and create a team together in real life. Then you need to locate a Gym that is hosting a Palkia Raid and go there to battle it. After that, in case your team manages to defeat the Legendary Pokémon, you will get some Premiere Balls and, of course, you will be given the opportunity to capture Palkia.
Tips about catching Palkia
As a quick reminder, Palkia is a dual Water and Dragon-type Pokémon. This means that the creature will only take neutral damage from Ice attacks. If you want to have the best chances against it when you battle it, you should use other Dragon-types. Some of the Pokémon that you could use are Rayquaza and Dragonite. Still, be very careful, as the company has warned that Palkia will also have its own Dragon-type Fast Attack.
We haven’t heard anything else from Niantic regarding other Gen 4 Legendaries, so we don’t know when others will debut in Pokémon Go yet. In the meantime, players are also looking forward to the next Community Day, which takes place on the 16th of February.
