Pokémon Go fans have criticized Niantic for a lack of Dragon Raids during the Lunar New Year’s Unleashed Dragons event.
Pokémon Go’s Lunar New Year 2024 event concluded on February 11, 2024, with the event marking the debut of Generation 7’s Normal/Dragon type, Draieul.
Draïeul debuted as a 3-star Raid target alongside previously released Dragon-types like Druddigon and Turtonator.
However, some fans spoke out strongly against Niantic after the event, with many claiming that it was extremely difficult to find a 3-star Draïeul Raid.
Pokémon Go fans frustrated by lack of Draïeul Raids
A post on the TheSilphRoad subreddit gained traction within the community after a trainer created a thread asking, “Why are there so few Draïeul Raids?”»
The original poster explained: “I don’t understand why Niantic decided to ‘launch’ so few Draïeul Raids. I live in a city with 15-20 arenas and I can only see 1-2 Draïeul per day.»
To support their point, the trainer also claimed that the wait times shown by third-party apps were also “incredibly long”, which he said suggested that other trainers were also having trouble finding Raids. Draïeul.
“Shouldn’t it be in Niantic’s best interest to have more raids and make some money from people logging in remotely? “, asked the trainer to the community.
Many trainers have also expressed frustration with the rarity of Draïeul Raids. “I have only seen 0 Draïeul Raids,” said one trainer, while another said: “I was just in Tokyo where there are so many arenas and I only saw 2 Draïeul Raids.»
Some players have argued that the 3-star Raid pool is simply too diluted to find many Draïeul Raids. “It doesn’t help that the pool is diluted by a billion Dark Raids that no one wants, and even among the 3 stars they added Drattak as a ‘bonus’.”»
With the Lunar New Year 2024 event coming to an end, let’s hope lucky trainers were able to catch a Draughton while there was still time.
