Unlike Mega Evolutions, Primal Reversion restores a Pokémon’s true powers as it reverts back to its all-powerful form, and only two Pokémon have been discovered to be able to do it: Kyogre and Groudon.

In Pokémon GO, Primal Reversions work similarly to Mega Evolutions as the trainers need to collect enough Primal Energy to access the new forms. Primal Energy can be harvested through successfully defeating Primal Kyogre or Primal Groudon in a Primal Raid Battle or by completing specific research tasks.

FEATURED STORIES

Primal Kyogre and Primal Groudon will have their own unique bonuses once a trainer reverts them back to their primal form.

Primal Kyogre

  • When Primal Kyogre is in your party, Water-, Electric-, and Bug-type attacks will benefit from attack bonuses in raids.
  • When Primal Kyogre is your buddy, catching Water-, Electric-, and Bug-type Pokémon will grant you additional XP and Candy.

Primal Groudon

  • When Primal Groudon is in your party, Fire-, Grass-, and Ground-type attacks will benefit from attack bonuses in raids.
  • When Primal Groudon is your buddy, catching Fire-, Grass-, and Ground-type Pokémon will grant you additional XP and Candy.

Both Kyogre and Groudon’s Primal Level will increase the more times they revert to their primal forms, which also further improves their respective bonuses.

Moreover, both Primal Kyogre and Primal Groudon will have new featured attacks when encountered through Primal Raids.

  • Kyogre encountered in Primal Raids will know the Charged Attack Origin Pulse.
