Rayquaza has returned to raids in Pokémon Go.
Known as the Sky High Pokémon, due to being a massive green dragon, you may also be able to catch a shiny, black, Rayquaza.
Like the legendary Pokémon it shares the Hoenn region with, including Groudon and Kyogre, Rayquaza will be available in five-star Raids, so, if you want to defeat this mighty dragon, you'll need to form a team of trainers.

Everything we know about Rayquaza
The members of this legendary trio are each a guardian of different elemental sphere. Groudon is the guardian of the lithosphere, so the land, Kyogre watches over the hydrosphere, the world's seas, and Rayquaza guards the atmosphere.
When Groudon and Kyogre clash, which they always seem to do, Rayquaza descends from the sky to stop their fight and help them return to their slumbers.
Since both Groudon and Kyogre have been making appearances in Pokémon Go recently, it only makes sense Rayquaza would eventually return.
