Great Balls are 1.5x better than Pokeballs, Ultra Balls are 2x, and Dusk Balls are 4x better at night only. If you want the best boost in catch rate though, switch to Lyrit as your partner. There's also a good guide on catch rates in the Guides subforum, too.

Clearly the Lapras fly.
Spoiler: show
They must have learned it from the one in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Explorers.

Thanks as always! I love the roamers.

Could we get raikou again next month as a special? I'd like to try getting the retros while the rate is still up.

I would loooooove it ! <3 Raikou is my favorite legendary c:
I would also love Togepi since next month is Easter, and Togepi look-like an egg :>

I'd rather something we cant catch ourselves personally, like most baby pokemon that have to be bred.

As someone with 3 active bells and 3 bells in my bag, I'm really not interested in raikoi

Raikou is a really nice idea, if we could add some Pokémon we can't summon (like Regigigas / some less "popular" legendary)
And Togepi for Easter is nice (even if i'd like Porygon / Tyrogue, but not really the best part of the year for it haha)

I'd love Raikou, Suicune, and Entei over the next three months! I definitely like when it's only two or three a month, too, so they aren't so difficult to find one of each, plus a shot at retros. The johto trio is especially difficult to hunt for retros despite their summons being available.

Why not putting 2 Classic-Rate Legendary (1% Pokéball without Lyrit / ML etc) with 1 Better-Rate Legendary (aka Celebi etc) ?
Like this people can catch some (Shiny) Legendary ?

seconding this. clear bells are available in the gp shop, and I'd rather have a chance at something we can't normally catch. Wild-caught babies is an adorable idea imo, since those of us with location/rp ocd could have the opportunity to meet young 'mon in fun locations.

I think a lot of people are pegging the roamers for the chance at the shiny rate, which is a nice thought....and it'd be great if we could apply that to starters as well. Maybe there could be a compromise where we get a roamer, starter type, and baby over the next couple months?

I like this ieda c:
and I like to have legendary as roamer since we get the chance to catch them without buying a summon item (which can be expensive and hard to get) and the for the boosted retro rate. You can just breed a Jigglypuff holding the other thing and using an everstone to get the good retro, which is something retro can't do ~

Why not:

( slash indicates pick one, not all of them)

Raikou, Pichu, Uxie/Dialga/Zapdos/Virizion

Entei, Magby, Mesperit/Palkia/Moltres/Terrakion

Suicune, Azurill, Azelf/Giratina/Articuno/Cobalion

etc

The reason I want roaming babies is the same as you wanting roaming Raikou.

I don't /want/ to breed it, and breeding a shiny retro isn't possible in most cases (need inscense + everstone/bp)

I want the opportunity to catch retro babies in the wild, with the increased shiny rate to maybe catch a shiny retro baby.

Entei/Suicune/Raikou, being actual roamers, are so hard to hunt, forget looking for retros. So having them as the monthly legendaries does actually make sense regardless of them being in the GP shop. I'm not going to complain if they're not next month but it would be nice to bring them in soon. Hopefully one at a time too. I like the idea of continuing as we have with a few different types per month (legendary, one time catch, etc). I would like to see fossils too.

Basically as Atsuaki just demonstrated, that's a nice compromise.
