Some general points of advice for fighting Team GO Rocket bosses: They stop attacking for a few seconds if you switch Pokémon. This means if you start the battle with a Pokémon other than your intended lead (preferably one that can comfortably take a few hits) and then immediately switch, you can get a couple of free fast attacks off. They also stop ...

TLDR: Chansey bad for attack. HP is not a good value to rank attackers on. Each Pokemon has different stats in their attack, defense and health (HP). I am not talking about IV here (that's a whole different story, read for example here ), but about the base stats for each Pokemon. A Chansey has a very high base stat for HP (currently only outranked by its ...

Its 97% stat is for a specific league, in your case it seems the 2500CP or Ultra League. Powering it above 2500CP makes it ineligible for that league. If you want to keep using it in PvP, do not power it up! In more general, the best IV changes per cup per Pokemon. Take for example Swampert, a Pokemon that is doing very well in each League, has a perfect PvP ...

No. Lucky Friends are a 1% chance of occurring per friend on each day you interact with them. You would typically expect to wait over 3 months after reaching Best Friends before going lucky with any individual trainer. If you interact with a Best Friend every day for 458 days (or with 458 Best Friends once, somehow), you still have a slightly higher than 1% ...

Every fast attack gives a specific amount of energy each time you use it. This amount depends only on the attack you're using and not on how much damage you do or any other factors. As far as I know, this information isn't available in-game anywhere, but fan sites such as Gamepress have them all catalogued - they list the values in the form of energy per ...

You are probably just leaning on the unlucky side. I too have experienced the oddities you mentioned around friendship interaction, but despite those issues I can say that lucky friends have not been disabled. In the last week, I have become lucky friends with two different trainers. Based on my experience, going months without becoming lucky friends is not ...

Now it is also opened up for the possibility to invite friends to a raid. That is if one of your friends is at the location of a raid and has entered the lobby, he/she can invite you to that raid. To accept the invite, you will have to use a remote raid pass. For an invitation like this, there are no limit on distance. See official info from Niantic

When it comes to rocket and leader battles, pokemon with fast charging charge attacks outshine all others. Rocket NPCs stop attacking for a second or two whenever either person swaps pokemon or unleashes a charged attack. Use these short periods of time to your advantage! With the right fast attack and charge attack, Sierra can only get 1-2 fast attacks in ...
