Apparently there was a video posted and quickly removed by a normally reliable source that stated that Deoxys is switching to Defense Forme on March 25. Just when I was thinking it was about time for it to switch too...

Well I guess at least with Defense Deoxys people can't just solo them.
Yeah but its gone from

You can solo it

to

You will need a minimum of 4 but more likely 6 or 7

Even when it was Mewtwo you could do an ex raid with fewer - Pokebattler is saying my teams will do between 25 and 29 % of all damage so when your saying 4 people its really 4 people at level 40 with great counters (outside of luck or weather bonuses)

check your pokedex. mine shows all 4 forms.
That's probably unintentional and will be patched out. They messed up a few things in the Pokedex recently, like the normal versions of Pokemon with Alolan forms not showing up.

In other cases, the alternate forms aren't visible until caught, like with Castform or Giratina.

Already missing the fighting event, it was a sweet steady income of nearly 5 rare candies per day.

Now when powering up my legendaries, I'm pretty much limited to solo raiding until meetup events. Despite now being able to solo most 3* raids in non-weather boosted conditions, I keep getting shit loot. Kind of losing interest until the next batch of mons are out of the Disney vault.

Niantic needs to stop with this multi T5 raid spawns. There was this last T5 egg at 6:30 and more then 20 peoples show up expecting Rayguaza and it hatched Dialga. You can hear the roar of disappointment. At least we're having fun as one guy yell 'I'm saving this shit for tomorrow, aint wasting Pass for shitty Dialga' LOL

They really need to add more party slots for raids. Five isn’t enough when you probably want to plan teams for up to five T3 bosses, maybe some T4, and then one-to-two teams for each T5 boss. It’s very obnoxious having to constantly reconfigure things before various raids.

They either need to do single T5s or tell you what the egg will hatch into. The current situation just complicates the already bad coordination process.
 
Just did 1 Rayquaza today at an ex gym to try to get a pass for defense Deoxys.

Like 30 people showed up to raid. Dialga has pretty much killed interest the past week so this was a nice surprise.

Ended up getting a 93% so not bad.

Also got a 5th shiny Growlithe on my way out of the raid.

Dialga is a beast in the pvp meta though. A dragon that’s strong against the other dragons.
