Thoughts on the event

This event is only a short two day one before part two starts

The Pokemon in Eggs are are decent selection, especially as mime Jr gives people around the globe chance to get Mr Mime.

The list of three star raids is a decent selection as many of them are useful for great league battles: especially Toxicroak and Drapion.

The selection of spawns in the wild isn’t especially outstanding for this event
