If you lose all your pokemon on a raid, can you keep fighting it? Does it cost another raid pass?

Got a 4 star raid starting soon, and based on what I've seen I'll probably be taking it on solo. I really want that Snorlax or Tyranitar if it's one of those though!

You can keep going if you lose a raid battle, as long as the raid is still ongoing. The pass is good for the entire hour so you won't need to use another one.

I was just informed of a Tyranitar 4-star raid. I can't make it but some of my teammates are there now.

The 4 star raid went terribly. It was a Charizard, but there were only 2 of us and we couldn't get it below half health before we were either wiped out or ran out of time.

Looks like raid battle are useless for catching those Pokémon I'm missing. Finding enough people to take down a 29000cp Snorlax in the time limit is basically impossible.

On the plus side, I'm on 6 gyms right now, so I'll finally be able to buy an item expansion I've been working towards for over a year. Then I can get a Pokemon space expansion after that.

I got a charged TM and tried to use it to finally give me my Machamp a decent fighting move. He got Heavy Slam, so now he has 2 steel type moves >_<. At least future TMs should guarantee fighting moves now, as I nhave both of the only 2 non-fighting type moves he can have.

After that, maybe I'll try and get my Gyarados something better than Bite and Dragon Pulse. Or maybe I'll see if I can get my Porygon2 some Normal type moves.

Funny you mentioned those 3. I've used TMs on them.

My original Machamp had Stone Edge as a charge move. Use TM > Heavy Slam -_-
My Gyarados had Crunch as a charge move. Use TM > Hydro Pump -_- (wanted Outrage)
My new Porygon2 I got by using some Rare Candies had Charge Beam. Use TM > Hidden Power (Fire-type version) -_- it also has Solar Beam as charge. I'll be changing that too.

My Machamp had Submission, which was OK, but I was fishing for Dynamic Punch. I got Heavy Slam.

Gyarados has Bite and Submission, and my Porygon2 has the same moveset as yours did - Charge Beam and Solarbeam.

Why did you want Outrage on Gyarados? He's not a dragon type (he's Water/Flying), so Hydro Pump is significantly more powerful surely?

I stand corrected. Gamepress rates a Dragon Tail/Hydro Pump Gyarados on Defense as an A:
Hydro Pump is a high performing charge move that is incredibly effective offensively. Gyarados has the strongest Hydro Pump in the game, boasting a enormous 237 attack stat.

Oh wow! Get rid of the Bite and then I'll have an awesome attacker and defender.

I also did another 4 star raid tonight at the flagpole gym! It was a Rhydon, I had 2 Valor teammates come out and then 2 Mystics (5 of us) helped us win it. I caught it too but it didn't appraise too great. I used all my Rare Candies on my Chansey, just 2 more to a Blissey!

I have enough Chancy candies to evolve and power up a bit. Unfortunately, the one Chancy I got in an egg only appraised with 'above average' scores, so I was kinda hoping to get a better one before I evolved.

Then again, considering it's HP, it might not be necessary :lol:

I just got back from a Tyranitar raid!!!! We had 5 Valors and 4 Mystics. Took it down!

BUT.... didn't catch him. He's a wild one with the jumping and everything! (one of my teammates got him -- 100% perfect!!!!!!)

Continuing the raid log:

1. 4 STAR - Charizard - No catch
2. 2 STAR - Electabuzz - Catch
3. 2 STAR - Weezing - Catch
4. 2 STAR - Exeggutor - No catch
5. 1 STAR - Quilava - Catch
6. 2 STAR - Exeggutor - No catch
7. 1 STAR - Croconaw - Catch
8. 2 STAR - Weezing - Catch
9. 1 STAR - Quilava - No catch
10. 2 STAR - Electabuzz - Catch
11. 3 STAR - Machamp - Catch (w/ Dynamic Punch!)
12. 2 STAR - Muk - Catch
13. 2 STAR - Magmar - Catch
14. 4 STAR - Rhydon - Catch
15. 4 STAR - Tyranitar - No catch
16. 4 STAR - Snorlax - Catch
17. 3 STAR - Machamp - Catch


We had 9 people at the Tyranitar raid, 16 at the Snorlax raid (9 Valor, 1 Instinct, rest Mystic), and about 7 or 8 for the Machamp raid. No Tyranitar but a Snorlax, at least! Everyone has been so friendly toward each other too. We're creating an all-team text group to let each other know of major raids, but still keeping the Valor channel for us only.

How on earth are you getting 9 people at these raids? I live in a city of 8 million people and I've never had more than 2 of us at one.
