Note that Carnivine and Chatot are apparently regionals. So is Pachirisu. 

And Shinx may not be in the game yet; Luxio is hatching from 10k eggs, but it's unclear if Shinx is available.

Not yet. Garchomp will eventually be quite good as a similar to Dragonite generalist/dragon. The legendary dragons will be great. Rhyperior, Electivore and Tangrowth all have potential to be good depending on moveset. Gallade will probably be a good fighting type against certain other types. Porygon-Z might be an excellent normal type, and Togekiss might be a really good defender in gyms due to how well it obliterates Machamp. 

That said, most of Gen 4 is going to be dominated by a combination of Machamps, Tyranitars with dark moves, MewTwo with shadow ball and dragons.

I thought Shadow Ball was gone for Mewtwo?

It's not available to get any more, but older Mewtwos with shadow ball still have it. They are going to be one of the best ghost attackers in the game, and even after Giratina gets released will likely be the strongest ghost attacker.

I burned a bunch of charge move change doohickeys trying to get Shadow Ball on one of my Mewtwos. Only to learn it's a "legacy" move. :bang:

Don’t feel bad. I only made it to 3 Ex-raids because I assumed I had time. One Mewtwo had Shadow Ball. I used all 19 TMs I had, trying to get Shadow Ball on the other 2, and got shut out. Other people reported it only took them one or two tries.

And to be truthful, the TMs had just been taking up bag space for some time. I'm only just now starting to get involved in higher tier raids where having good moves is at all meaningful.

Didn't end up catching any good ones. Evolved 3 shinies that were okay. Traded a few and got a couple of 85% luckies.

Traded long after the event was over and my wife got a non-lucky 100%.

Lol. After reading this, I just used my last remaining TM on my Machamp (89% IV). And it changed his charge move from Close Combat to Dynamic Punch. :cheers:

If I could recommend only one thing to players, it's to invest in a team - at least 6 - high IV, high leveled Machamps with Dynamic punch. 

  • They're not too hard to find candy for
  • They're not hard to do a tier 3 raid and get a good one
  • Cloudy is one of the most common weather types, so finding good IV/high level isn't too bad
  • They are the best generic gym attacker in the game
  • They allow duoing of a number of Tier 4 raids, including the most important one - Tyranitar
  • They're meta relevant for a surprisingly large amount of legendaries going forward

Super, super useful to have.

The rumour mill says that tomorrow, after Mewtwo disappears as raid boss, Niantic will re-balance the CPs of all your Pokémon. That weird half hour last week where the re-balancing happened for half an hour and then reverted to the status quo did great things for some Pokémon and just destroyed my Blisseys. All those hours of walking my Chansey for extra candy! My strongest Blissey dropped 500 CP in value. And all of my 666 collection vanished!

Last night I learned that people can share Ex-Raid passes with Ultra friends.  I'm pretty excited as there is finally going to be an ex raid during non-work hours (6pm Tuesday, barely not work hours) and one of my friends sent me an invite.
