The timing of Pokemon Go’s new Incarnate Forme Enamorus Raid Event has sparked outrage among players, presenting them with difficult decisions this Valentine’s Day.
Incarnate Forme Enamorus, debuting on February 14, 2024, has left many Pokemon Go trainers in a bind, as the event’s scheduled times clash with typical work hours and Valentine’s Day plans. With raids happening in-person only and no option for remote participation, the community’s frustration is palpable.
Players have taken to Reddit and social media to express their dismay over the event’s timing, with comments ranging from concerns over the inability to participate due to work commitments to criticisms of the event’s accessibility.
The consensus among the player base is clear: the timing is inconvenient, and the decision to exclude remote raids only exacerbates the issue.
The Elite Raid against Incarnate Forme Enamorus offers a unique challenge and the opportunity to catch this new Legendary Pokemon, alongside a chance at various Shiny Flying and Fairy-type Pokemon. However, the event’s exclusivity to in-person participation during limited hours has left many feeling left out.
One player lamented, “Noon to 6:30 on a Wednesday? People have to work,” highlighting the common sentiment among those unable to adjust their schedules.
Another added, “It’s so utterly impractical and needlessly restrictive. It doesn’t benefit players in any way whatsoever.”
Despite the backlash, some players offer a different perspective, emphasizing patience and prioritizing real-life commitments over the game: “In pogo nothing stays rare and everything comes back eventually so skipping this on Wednesday won’t affect me. I have real life to do.”
For those looking to participate, the battle against Incarnate Forme Enamorus requires careful planning and strong counters. Top contenders include Shadow Metagross with Bullet Punch and Meteor Mash, Mega Diancie with Rock Throw and Rock Slide, and Thundurus (Therian Form) with its signature move, Wildbolt Storm.
Given the event’s restrictions, players who can make it to the raids will need to leverage their best counters to overcome this challenging foe.
Yet, for many, the decision to engage with the event or prioritize Valentine’s Day plans and work commitments remains a tough one.
