While there’s no official word on what will replace the Groudon Raid, the evidence points towards an appearance by Gen 3 Legendary Kyogre.
The first clues came courtesy of a recent update, which removed the Dragon Tail attack from its move set.
“We can’t confirm yet, but updates like these (CP and move nerfs) usually come prior to the release of that particular Pokemon,” reads a post on the Pokemon Go Hub.
Another update has since been discovered by The Silph Road Reddit, which appears to have added Kyogre art assets.
This almost certainly points towards a Kyogre release date in the coming days and weeks.
“In an upcoming update to Pokemon GO, we will end support for Apple devices not capable of upgrading to iOS 11, such as iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c models,” Niantic explains.
“This change is a result of improvements to Pokemon GO that push the application beyond the capabilities of the operating systems on such devices.
“This change will take effect on 02/28/2018. After that date, Trainers using affected devices may no longer be able to access their Pokemon GO accounts from that device, or use their PokéCoins or other items in their Bags.”
It’s likely the change has something to do with the new and improved AR features in Pokemon Go.
The new augmented reality AR+ features are only available on devices running iOS 11. This includes the iPhone 6S and newer models.
As part of the new update, Pokemon will be more accurately positioned based on their surroundings, while their size will increase or decrease depending on how close you are.
