Pokémon has announced the upcoming seven-star raid for March.
Following the pattern of other seven-star raids, this one features a fan-favourite starter.
Decidueye is coming to raids.
Decidueye, the evolved form of Rowlet, will be the target of this month’s raids.
Rowlet was one of players’ favourite starters from Generation 7, and it appeared again as a starter in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
Decidueye is usually a Grass-/Ghost-type, and it received a second typing in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
Hisuian Decidueye is Grass-/Fighting-type, but this isn’t the Pokémon that will appear in raids.
Instead, The Mightiest Decidueye will come with the Flying-tera type.
This is the same type that Rowlet and Dartrix have with the Grass-type before they evolve.
The first set of raids will take place on Friday, March 17, 2023, until Sunday, March 19, 2023.
Decidueye will appear again in raids on Friday, March 24, 2023, until Sunday, March 26, 2023.
The Pokémon Company has changed the rules of seven-star raids recently.
Previously, legendary Pokémon such as Miraidon, Koraidon, Chien-Pao, Wo-Chien, Ting-Lu, and Chi-Yu were not allowed to take part in raids.
However, since the Pikachu seven-star raid, these Pokémon are allowed in these difficult raids.
The Pikachu raid was different to other raids, not only for the use of legendaries.
While Pikachu is a starter Pokémon, it started out with the tera-barrier up, and it remained up for the entire battle.
The Pikachu also held its signature item, while other starters haven’t held an item.
Decidueye should see a return to the regular type of raids, where it doesn’t hold an item and has a limited barrier.
