I thought i'd share this with fellow Team Valor members as it's the first Legendary i've managed to catch since legendary raids we're released.

My cousin messaged me on Facebook to say the raid had just spawned up the road from where I worked, lucky I was due to finish 10 mins later. I checked the local Facebook group and various people who i didn't know said they would be meeting at 5:15. So i turned up and was the 4th there, people kept arriving and in the end we had 18 people, so easily won the raid.

I then managed to capture it on the 5th ball, so was pretty chuffed as the Moltres was: "Simply amazing with defence as it's strongest feature and stats the appraisal was blown away with"

To give some context theirs no gyms within a 30+ min walk of my house, so its difficult for me to do raids on an evening. I'd then spent 4+ hours in my towns local park last Saturday with a friend and no legendary raids spawned what so ever, however their is a few gyms near where I work which also never seem to have legendary raids on when i've finished work.

So essentially everything fell in to place for once allowing me to obtain a Moltres :)

Cheers to yours also, how many attempts did it take?

I've bumped in to people who have missed 8/8 Articunos, then you see others who have like 10 and it makes it seem like the game hands them out like candy!

I caught it in my second raid. 

Articuno have played the nastiest out of all of them for me.  I believe, cough, Articuno is biased toward Valor.  XD

You get that WC7FULL while you were there? Lol jk!

Good catch!  That’s the highest CP Pikachu I’ve seen so far.  So, if you evolve it, obviously = shiny Raichu.. makes me wonder if there’s gunna be a shiny pichu. The Ash cap pichu blew my mind. Probably because I never experienced a “hat event” in PoGO.

Hmm, perhaps I should try to hatch some Pichu there!

im trying to get multiple, so I'll have both shiny pikachu and raichu on me.

I see what's going on here ;)

I'd do the same, however i'd ruin my enjoyment of the game, even if I did it just for this event.

Nice Raichu though!

Yeah, I pretty much couldn't be bothered with the events in Europe and US.

I only bothered to go to Yokohama, to hunt Pikachus (and the shinies don't come by that easily. Haven't gotten a single one for my sis :( )
