What is the best way to counter Pokemon in the latest raids?


Currently, the A Very Slow Discovery event is taking place in Pokemon GO. On this occasion, Galarian Slowpoke and Mega Slowbro made their debut in the game. In addition, the players received many interesting attractions and a collector’s challenge.

There were also thematic raids. This time, you can get many “lazy” Pokemon from them, such as Slaking or Snorlax.
