A Pokémon Go trainer shared a personal tip that allowed him to overcome “95%” of the raids available in the mobile game.
Pokémon Go offers plenty of content that trainers can participate in, alone or in groups.
Raiding is one of the most popular activities in the game, although many players struggle to take on difficult raids like Boreas in his Totemic form< a i=2> when they have no other players to help them.
However, a trainer sent a message to the community to inform them that there is a fairly simple tip for raiding that may help some fans overcome “95%< /span>” of those they meet.
Pokémon Go fan shares simple raiding tip
A post on the Pokémon Go subreddit gained popularity among the community after a fan shared some rather blunt advice.
The OP titled the thread, “Announcement: You can do about 95% of the raids in this game with 4 decent level players.”
He explained, “The number of raids that are avoided with 4 people level 35+ is incredible. Do you really think you need 6 people to raid a Boreas? I just had a lobby of 4 level 40+ players. It happens all the time.”The trainer ended the post by calling some fans “weak” for leaving raids early.
Although blunt, many players agreed with the OP’s advice and shared their own experiences with others leaving doable raids.
“I had 2 other people join a Gobbler raid, only to leave it before it started,” said one fan. “I was like ‘don’t go, I can do it solo!’ I tried to communicate that it was doable for the 3 of us by getting ready, but they didn’t get the trick.”
In the same vein, many people have blamed the lack of easy communication tools for this specific problem.
“I understand the need to limit free communication for in-game safety, but there could be a wheel or drop-down menu of some comments just for basic things like that,” one player suggested. Another agreed and said, “Yeah like basic emoticons, hello, flex, hi or others.”
Others have said that the reason it’s hard to find other decent level raiders is the price of Raid Passes. “Blame raid passes. They are so expensive to be a crucial part of the game in my opinion.”
While it’s certainly true that many players overestimate the difficulty of certain raids, it’s also true that there are more limiting factors at play than level alone.
