Use the chance for Liberlo

If you’ve played Pokémon Sword and Shield, i.e. the eighth generation, then Liberlo should look familiar to you. This is the second evolution of the fire starter Hopplo (evolves into Kicklero at level 16 and Liberlo at level 36).

It is possible that further starters will appear in the Crimson and Crimson Tera Raids in the future, here is an overview of the starting Pokémon from Sword and Shield:

Liberlo is not usually found in the Paldea region. So the two raid dates give you the only option so far for the fire rabbit, which you can of course breed with the help of Ditto and continue to exchange.

As with Charizard, this is a 7-star raid, which means: It should be tough again. In addition, Liberlo carries the Titan mark and can only be caught once per save. In the raid, the Pokemon will have the Tera-type Fight.
