This post talks about the latest API I have added to PoGoAPI.net, the Raid Exclusive Pokemon list.
What is the Raid Exclusive Pokemon List
Some Pokemon in Pokemon Go are Raid Exclusive and can only be caught by fighting raids. This means there is no other way to obtain them other than raiding.
Currently there are only two Pokemon which are raid exclusive however this may be increased in the future. As noted on the documentation this may need to change how the API is consumed if this changes as the format currently will not support this.
Getting the Raid Exclusive Pokemon names and ID’s
This API will let you easily get the list of current raid exclusive Pokemon and the raid tier they are in.
Returns a JSON dict with the keys being the Pokemon ID, the values are an array containing the Pokemon name, ID, and and level raid they can be found in.
Currently all raid exclusive pokemon are tied to a specific raid level. In the future the API might need to change if this changes.
The full documentation is available on the PoGoAPI.net documentation page.
If you have any questions about this API or suggestions for other API’s contact me here below or on Twitter!
