Thoughts on the event

First and foremost the boosts on the event are nice. 2x Catch XP is always welcome especially over a 4 day period

The 2x transfer candy is useful especially if trainers have been grinding the recent Ed Sheeran event

Four raid hours and four spotlight hours are nice. Sableye spotlight is a huge chance to get lots of stardust given Sableye’s base catch stardust of 750

Beldum will be good for players looking to get candy/candy XL for Metagross: a solid pick in the master league, and pikachu and rattata both have medal challenges that these spotlights could help work towards

In terms of raids the legendary birds are a welcome addition, as every trainer should want to have their respective team colour bird caught and shiny!! 

Im not sure why Cobalion, Terrakion and Verizion are returning given they are fresh out of raids in November and really not very good to begin with but Heatran, Articuno and especially Registeel are very useful for PvP so the chance to stock candies for them is always welcome
