Niantic has finally revealed information surrounding Pokemon Go’s Regidrago Global Makeup event. Here’s everything fans need to know.

Pokemon Go fans will likely remember that Niantic’s first attempt at Regidrago’s Elite Raids on March 11, 2023, did not go very smoothly. The event was plagued with issues like frequent crashing and late assets.

Following some intense community backlash, Niantic issued an apology and said it was planning a way to “make it up to Trainers all over the world.” After weeks of silence, fans were wondering if the developer had simply forgotten about the makeup event altogether.
