Pokémon Lake Trio are back on Pokémon Go for a limited time. You can find them in five-star raids starting September 14 through October 1, giving you a full month to try and add these three Pokémon to your collection. Each will be present in a different region and Azelf will spawn across the Americas and Greenland. We recommend teaming up with a few other instructors to help out. For these raids, what are your chances of catching a brilliant version of Azelf?
For the September 14 raids, this is the first time that Azelf and the other Lake Guardian Pokémon have their shining versions available in Pokémon Go. If you want to catch Azelf and get a shining version, we recommend teaming up with the trainers who live in the Azelf region and try to be invited to their battles. Like other raiding Pokémon in the game, Azelf has a 20 in XNUMX chance of being lucid after beating him in a Pokémon battle. Sure, there's always a chance another trainer might offer you to trade a brilliant version, but it's best to try and catch him after a raid battle.
While this is the first time that the bright version of Azelf has appeared, we can expect it to reappear in the future when it returns to five-star raids. However, it's been about a year since he was last featured in raids. Therefore, we recommend getting it now while the hype is still high for its glossy version before it becomes harder to capture in the future.
