Legendary Lunch Hour event raids are coming back to Pokémon Go this month.
Last month, developers Niantic unveiled a new event to encourage more players to take part in raids. Called the Legendary Lunch Hour event, it is made available during normal lunch hour, from 12:00 to 1:00 PM. During that time, the number of raids increases, allowing more players to be part of different raids.
Niantic launched a test for the event last month, on March 13. The developer plan to have a second test this month, on April 10, except this time players are offered a new kind of rewards. Five-star raids with Origin Forme Giratina will become more apparent.
Thanks for your feedback on our first Legendary Lunch Hour! We are excited to continue this experiment on April 10, when raids will be featuring Origin Forme Giratina! https://t.co/rmfev4ZRtq pic.twitter.com/4elcOSJ0qI

Giratina is a Legendary Pokémon that first appeared in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. A ghost and dragon type Pokémon, it is rumored to be the ruler of the distorted world. Giratina is said to be the God of all Pokémon’s opposite. He has two forms; his base form has him walking with legs, while his Origin Forme makes him look more like a serpent, and he simply floats.
Since he is a dragon and ghost Pokémon, the best Pokémon to face against Giratina in these raids are a dragon, ghost, fairy, and ice types.
The second Legendary Lunch Hour event will happen on April 10, between the hour of 12 and 1 PM.
