Thoughts on the event

The introduction of the Mega legendary Pokemon Latios and Latias is a positive step forward for the game and something fun for players to raid

Meowth is the Pokemon to catch from all the ones spawning in the wild given its base 500 stardust per catch

Lapras in 3 star raids is a nice pokemon to use a free raid pass or two on to build a good one for the battle league for anyone interested in PvP

The flying Pikachu will appeal to players who enjoy catching Pikachu of all variety.  Magikarp and Pikachu in the wild are also a good chance to work on the medals for catching the two of them respectively
