    UPDATE: It seems if you join a random lobby (not using a code), the rewards are only given out one time if you fail. You should only be doing this with your friends, don't join random raids and lose on purpose because odds are you wont get the rewards anyway!

      This explains why random Herba Mysticas were appearing in my bags! I kept thinking, "Wait... I don't remember getting one as a reward. Maybe I missed it..." Turns out I did get them, just off-screen. On another note, this is just sad that this is what it's come to in order to get the Pokemon you want. What a way to play the game by losing over and over on purpose because trying hard to win is less rewarding.

      Looks like they may have patched it. doing Charizard raids and doesn't seem to be giving me anything for the L

      I was going to say, I did some tests and it worked once but not every time. Does anyone know exactly how to trigger it? Like once per going online, or once ever, or once per raid (the latter surely isn't true as I've only done rando raids so never joined a raid twice)
      But anyway, I'm not trying to fail but 6*s are genuinely super difficult so about 4/5ths of the time I fail and it would be nice to get some bonus stuff.

      Hey Wolfe, small chance you’ll see this but if you do, I have a quick question. I’m making a competitive team, have studied the competition and am looking for a filler member. My choices are Ninetales or Froslass. They both hold synergy with my team but both under the right circumstances can hurt the team rather than help. Which do I go with? Ninetales or Froslass?

    JSYK You don't need to lose to farm the same raid over and over again, if the host saves before the den (autosave off) and then resets once you beat the raid and are returned to the overworld, the den will still exist. This way you can also tell what rewards you are getting. With the right strats, you can one-shot most bosses (using perserrker or iron hands, for example), which I think is even faster than losing.

    • Quicksilver
      Quicksilver Month ago +2

      Definitely is better,but the one hosting.the teraraid won't get the rewards 'cause after you beat the Pokémon should reset the game to restart it.

      Definitely faster. Azu and Iron Hands solo any 5 stars and with screech support they clown 6s too

  • MARM
    MARM 2 months ago +570

    I just hope this doesn't cause randoms to throw in actual raid attempts... Bc like if you're hosting a raid looking for group you want to win to get rewards, but your helpers get rewards regardless so they could just throw and that would suck...

      Trevor Schmid Month ago

      Tbf I've done this on accident. Seen someone's iron Hands right next to my Azumarill just thought it was might clicked ready up and was like fuuucckkk it doesn't let you back up and change if you misclick or are spamming A into oblivion because it takes ten years to load or to tell you "Unable to join"

      Leo D 2 months ago +1

      @scathee sure, but people should say that in their videos then, because it would still cause randoms to throw the raid to try this out, sure they would only throw a couple of them before realising it doesn't work but it would still inconvenience a bunch of people.

    Smurf 2 months ago +94

    Honestly this makes sense now. Last night I tried my first 6 star raid (by joining a random) and we got close but lost, and then I got a call from Jacq where the only response I could choose was "I won!" Thought that was really weird, but it would explain why that happened, the game thought I won. Thanks for clearing up that mystery!

      I was thinking something similar when I had items I shouldn't have. I noticed the other day I have a fair bit more Herba Mystica than I should. Like, double the amount of HM. This makes a lot of sense.

  • BigBadHyena

      @劉京澤 You only get the rewards if you use a code to join a raid. Losing random raids doesn't give you rewards, so it shouldn't be a problem.

    As much as I want terra shards to be more available, I really hope this gets patched. Anything that requires you to lose on purpose to get better rewards cannot be healthy for an online environment.

  • CamouflagedJune
    CamouflagedJune 2 months ago +53

    Thanks for posting! Yeah would def only really recommend with friends. Want to mention a few things I never dm’ed.
    Suicide Moves just don’t work at all in raids they won’t let you use them so Recoil Moves and Frail mons are good. (You can attack your Allie’s in Raids! Why? Idk but you can!)
    You lose more time if your mons are a higher level, my guess is that there is a certain stat the time loss from dying is but never tested that.
    And if playing with friends this bypasses the limited amount of 6* raids you would have access to in a way since we only get one per day. Hopefully this optimizes Farming for Raid materials!

    • Occulydian
      Occulydian 2 months ago +2

      I mean, you can also just advance a day on your switch and get more 6* raids that way as well.

  • AKcorey47
    AKcorey47 2 months ago +28

    I remember my friends getting a bunch of XP candies from us failing 5 star raids when we first unlocked them. Meanwhile I wasn't getting any. Now it makes sense. Surprised this took so long for the community to figure out. Or maybe it was a well kept secret

    • Meahendra
      Meahendra 2 months ago

      @scathee yeah the only real benefit of this is that you can grind one raid multiple times for its rewards.

    • AKcorey47
      AKcorey47 2 months ago

      @scathee I see

    • scathee
      scathee 2 months ago +11

      Tons of people have independently discovered it but found that just winning the raids with fully juiced up mons is faster than trying to lose over and over again.

  • Danger_Noodle
    Danger_Noodle 2 months ago +9

    What happens if the host disconnects? If disconnecting stops everyone from getting rewards then that could be considered a good defense against randoms trying to steal from the host by throwing.

  • PokeMaineEvent
    PokeMaineEvent 2 months ago +35

    Can confirm. My friends got like 15 ability patches from this and we split them lol

    • PokeMaineEvent
      PokeMaineEvent 2 months ago +1

      @Jack Staples yes it was the same rewards determined by the first raid. We were wondering why I (host) gif 1 ability patch but my friend got 15 (cuz we kept losing and retrying) it’s cuz of this. A friend who joined in much later got 4 because he only joined in the last 4 attempts

    • Jack Staples
      Jack Staples 2 months ago

      I'm wondering if the rewards are determined when the raid spawns

      @Simon Teesdale Yeah, I don't need the raid mons themselves anymore, I have what I need. Basically been using the glitch to farm money for vitamins/caps, realistically I only need 2-3 Patches because the raid mons have their hidden abilities. Need more capsules than anything lol

    • Simon Teesdale
      Simon Teesdale 2 months ago

      Sweet. Are you using the duplication glitch to get more without grinding?

  • Keith Hanson
    Keith Hanson 2 months ago +42

    So I think I accidentally benefited from this. I'm in a raid group using the perserrker strategy. And I would volunteer for the harder raids for that strategy (typically annihilape), so it would take 5 or 6 tries to win. Never would have guessed that beating my head against a wall would be worth it

    • exxlppm
      exxlppm 2 months ago

      I was unsure, but last night, I raided with my brother and a friend, we were failing 6 star raids, trying to find ability patches for perserker. After failing Corviknight a few times, we wanted to switch our strat, and needed to train new pokemon. I was looking at my mints and saw a few ability patches and was very confused; I thought it may have been a reward that I missed reading. It all makes sense now.

    • Saber
      Saber 2 months ago +3

      Well yeah obviously anyone who has ever failed a raid has accidentally benefited from this

  • Brian Peterson
    Brian Peterson 2 months ago +6

    You can attack allies and a higher level Pokemon fainting makes the timer go down more, so joining with a level 100 is actually the quickest way to do this

  • GatherEarth
    GatherEarth 2 months ago

    Seems like a lot of issues with multiplayer. This same strat for picnics gives joined players the sandwich powers and doesn’t use up herbs if the host restarts the game without saving! Loving the exploits!

  • Jose Dorda
    Jose Dorda 2 months ago +69

    Part of me isn't happy with this because a lot of of people are going to randomly join raid with the intention to fail, anyway, I was already planning of raiding mainly solo.

    • Wuerschtle
      Wuerschtle Month ago

      Honestly soloing raids is easier than with teammates, at least if youre playing with random teammates. The main reason is that the timer doesnt decrease if cpu teammates die, so as long as you die no more than once or twice, you can really take your sweet time.

    • 劉京澤
      劉京澤 2 months ago +1

      @Tractie I think AI is a bit better than in Sword and shield
      No more constant rock polish etc
      But there are times still struggle
      Once I try to clear a tera dragon kingambit with defiant ability
      AI kept sending intimidators
      Another time I tried to clear a Garganacl with of course purifying salt ability, my AI teammates kept on trying to burn or paralyze the garganacl for 4 consecutive turns

    • Tractie
      Tractie 2 months ago

      @Orez-Suke Yeah but even if you do Belly Drum strats, there is no guarentee you win 6 Star Raid, let alone 7 Star raid when your teammate AIs arrive with Umbreon, Driftloom and some other useless pokemon so you are forced to deal all of the dmg yourself which is almost impossible when your stats get reset every 5 turns so you have to belly drum again (without berry this time) and nobody else is healing you and also isn't attacking each time you are dead and waiting for you to respawn. Especially when you cannot use iron hands but only Azumarill due to the raid pokemon being ghost, psychic, bug, poison or fairy type.
      All I tried to say is that raids get muuuuuuuuch harder when you play with AIs because they can be very bad and that playing raids on your own might have some problems because of that
      I am fine, I've got some good pokemons specially trained for raids and I also have friends that I can raid with, so I am good. Thank you guys for all the help but I don't need any ^^'

  • Chris Miller
    Chris Miller 2 months ago +1

    I wish so badly that you could also get ability patches from 5 star raids. Even 1% would be so much better than slogging through 6 star raids

  • Cameron Burrows
    Cameron Burrows 2 months ago +3

    The best thing to do would have a group of 4 friends, each of you find a 6 star and go round the group losing so you all get your rewards equally rather than one or two getting nothing. Please no one do this in online matchmade raids.

    • Benjamin Gardner
      Benjamin Gardner 2 months ago +1

      People have already been doing this in online raids for several days. This isn't new information, but it's not exactly widely known yet either.

  • bhb -/
    bhb -/ 2 months ago

    I am almost certain this is always the case cause i remember trying to join a bunch of 5/6 stars and ended up losing all of them cause I didnt know the movepools. I checked my backpack and had 7+ herba mysticas. I thought it was a bug where they didnt show up on the rewards page from my successful raids

  • Whayron Ramon
    Whayron Ramon 2 months ago +1

    This method also works for Herbas Mysticas. The main raids that drop them are: Vaporeon, Blissey, Amoongus, Farigiraf, Dondozo and Cetitan.

  • Ruchy
    Ruchy 2 months ago +21

    I kept seeing XP candies being added to my inventory after losses, figured it was a 50% XP candy reward for consolation or something. Didn't realize I was potentially getting HM too.

  • Bluntizard

    Can your "allies" also hit you instead of the raid mon to increase the speed of this?

    • Obama
      Obama 2 months ago

      yes they can

  • Ian Varela
    Ian Varela Month ago +1

    Apparently if your mons are higher the level it takes more off the timer when it faints. So it's faster to do this with lvl 100 mons

  • Janimal
    Janimal 2 months ago

    This explains why I always had alot of XL candies and had 3 ability patches when I only saw 1 that I got from winning. That's insane but I feel like people will still try to win since you can still lose even when your trying really hard

  • Mr. Rogers
    Mr. Rogers 2 months ago +2

    Higher level Pokemon take the timer down more by each level. So 4 level 100 killing e/o will make it go faster

  • Dante
    Dante Month ago

    Fyi using higher level mons seems to help the timer go down faster. Friends and I are using lvl 80-100 electrodes against dens with aggressive mons and we can finish it in 2 minures or so. Level 1s were taking on average about 6 minutes.
    Also, self destruct and explosion doesn't seem to work. It displays "But it failed" probably to avoid griefing.

  • tolaut
    tolaut 2 months ago +3

    I disagree with you saying that this is the fastest method for tera shards. I've done quite a few Raids with the Perrserker strat and killing the Boss on move 2 is a lot faster than getting yourself knocked out a few times. But i get that this is a phenomenal option for people who don't want to got through the hassle of building a Perrserker for the strat.

    • Benjamin Gardner
      Benjamin Gardner 2 months ago +1

      @tolaut it was also a raid with 2 NPCs. Only players fainting decrease the time remaining. It's definitely going to be close once you optimize losing. This requires no setup and no time shenanigans though, making it very appealing.

    • tolaut
      tolaut 2 months ago

      @NolChannel which takes about 2min if you are in the rhythm of doing it. Wofle waited 4 minutes in the raid while waiting to fail. This is definitely slower. But i get the appeal - getting the exact same items can be cool if you are only out for herba mystica.

    • NolChannel
      NolChannel 2 months ago +1

      And then you need to back out of the console, update the time, travel to a new node, and re-think how to beat the next 'mon.
      No, this is definitely faster.

  • Taylor
    Taylor 2 months ago

    I did this with friends, my explosion did not kill my pokemon. It just acted like a normal attack with the self-feint not taking effect. Could have been a bug. Secondly, not sure how I feel about this for the rando scene. This will encourage throwing if you don't host.

  • Sei
    Sei 2 months ago

    I expected a lot more from your announcement earlier honestly
    Grinding shards was fine so far, you can get any tera type you want by just oneshotting 4*
    5* are a different beast, but frankly, being nicely prepared still manages this nicely, but I can see having 4 people do it like this could be faster - for 3 people. One person is going to get nothing.
    Another thing to note is, you throw away every raid mon - Though in most cases you probably dont need it, and only rare cases rly matter anyways.
    Overall, not worth it imo, without a full group its pretty much pointless, if I have two people who want to farm shards, i am better off clicking every 4-5* raid and defeat it instead (Plus forwarding time for next day raids)

  • Jack Mabal
    Jack Mabal 2 months ago

    That explains it! I was doing a bunch of 6 star raids the other day trying to get an ability patch. I failed the majority of them and the few I did win, I checked and didn’t get an ability patch. But somehow I got one in my bag. This 1000% works.

    good for joining raids but really bad for the people hosting, i was trying to host raids yesterday and lost most of them, it kinds stings knowing i didnt get anything for it when the random strangers i hosted did

  • Gerardo Leon
    Gerardo Leon 2 months ago +1

    To further complain about this, you get 4 shards for losing a 6 star raid, you’d get the same number of shards by wining solo 4 star raids in one attack

  • Nattentuk
    Nattentuk 2 months ago

    I see this being a gigantic problem because I can't trust randos to go through the whole raid with information like this out there. Hopefully it doesn't effect it too much.

    Glad to find out that all these raid battles that lag (not an internet issue on my part) so much for me that I can barely get two attacks in still end up giving me rewards apparently.

  • かわいい*  赤ちゃん! [クラマ]

    I feel so bad I have 5 star raids and I join some, but I try my best my Pokémon are about level 80 or higher and I try my best to use strong moves, but sometimes I feel so bad when everyone else is dying and they don't do enough damage.

      Homeless Pirate 2 months ago

      depends on what you are looking for and what mon is in the den, some of them drop multiple herbs (blissey and dodonga come to mind) so reset failing and getting 4 different herbs each rotation is definitely the best way for herb gathering.

    This happened to me last night while I was looking for an ability patch. I never got one in any of the raids I won and I was unaware I got it from a lost raid until I was going into my items to switch things around.
    I'm getting a kick out of realizing I was unaware that I had an ability patch, which I used to give my Skeledirge its hidden ability... unaware.

      There's an item dupe glitch, so you only need to grind for the first one.

    7:44 also since the HP is boosted for the raid Pokémon a good idea is to use a mon with Brave Bird or other moves with high recoil

    I’ve tried this in online random raids (didn’t throw we just lost naturally) and as far as I could tell I didn’t get any rewards for losing so it might only work through link code raids

  • Michel dAuteuil

    There's a much better farm with Dittos. A Ditto always transforms into the host, so the host can bring a LVL 1 anything that any buddies (even the AI) will curb stomp easily. The host can then quit the game without saving after to redo the raid. So everyone except the host can infinitely redo the raid and get the rewards with no effort. My friend and I amassed 20+ ability capsules and patches this way, not to mention a bunch of tera Shards and exp candies whenever we found a Ditto with good rewards.

    • Michel dAuteuil
      Michel dAuteuil 2 months ago

      @RNGesus yep, but you can reset the clock to the next day to reset your 6 star raid for the day. A bit tedious for sure, but once you find a good one it's very fast to grind out.

    • RNGesus
      RNGesus 2 months ago

      That will need a ditto though, which is a 1/50 roll (if evenly distributed),

  • Venty (Formerly 1yoshi79)
    Venty (Formerly 1yoshi79) 2 months ago +1

    This isn’t even the optimal way to farm high level raids though. Using an EV Trained iron hands or Gholdengo to buff your stats and then oneshotting the enemy boss is by far the best method.
    It’s even easier with 1-3 friends cause they can bring mons like Perrserker to taunt and debuff the boss with screech or metal sound, and then helping hand the DPS carry mon to ensure a guaranteed oneshot, skipping the shield and Terra phases altogether. This all occurs in 2-3 turns, whereas the method in this video takes 5-10 minutes and like 8-10 turns of just sitting around. Even when this strat is fully optimized, it won’t be as fast as the 2-3 turn one shot strat that 1-3 friends can easily do together.

    I’ve been wondering why people go into raids with Pokémon and I’m just looking at their choice like “you gotta be trolling bring this to this raid we’re gonna lose” and now it makes sense…. But this felt like it took longer than just beating the Mon up… this makes sense for a bunch of people who don’t have Mons that can take on the raid but it sucks for people actually tryna beat the raid or catch the pokemon

  • Euan Thompson
    Euan Thompson 2 months ago

    This is going to be a really variable thing. The last thing I want if I am trying to catch a raid Pokemon is to have someone join with level 1 just to get the rewards. I guess the thing here is do it with people you know until we have bots hosting or something.
    I do wish they had just made changing the type free or like 5 shards or something

  • DaVil

    A friend of mine does set-up strats and OHKOs 5 and 6 star bosses as long as his partners don't trigger a damage cap. That results two turn kills with Belly drum pkmn or 4 turn kills with Swords Dance/ Nasty plot pkmn. (Have to be strong enough though)

  • Raziel

  • dangerouslyirish

    As awesome as this exploit is... It's going to make hosting miserable. Bad enough it feels like some randoms barely have two braincells to rub together, but now more competent players are just going to want to take the dive for the easy items. I sincerely hope this is patched out.

  • DTWDuuvaaall
    DTWDuuvaaall 2 months ago

    Seems like the rewards are reduced for this, because I haven't gotten under 6 Tera shards from a 6 star raid yet and you only received 4. Maybe this is an intended feature to give partial rewards for any attempts?

  • Marshall
    Marshall 2 months ago +3

    This is fast, but probably not as fast as 5 or 6 star Ditto raids. Since Ditto always transforms into the host's mon, you could have them bring a Lvl 1 Sunkern or something and defeat the raid extremely quickly. Then the host can close the game before it auto-saves to prevent the raid from being removed and everyone else can go again. Obviously you can't rely on these raids spawning, but if they do they can be extremely lucrative for a group of friends.

    • RokuroKun

      Anthony Nguyen 2 months ago

      Can you not turn off autosave for online? Also does the raid ditto copy hp/stats like normal or is it just turning into whatever a raid version of that pokemon would be

    Oh....that would explain why i had an extra ability patch.
    This one time i was like "FINALLY ONE THAT I CAN CLONE FOR MONEY"
    And im sure i check all the rewards...then i notice i had 2 on the bag...and that was weird because if i had one from rewards previously i would have notice...
    Only thing that worries me is that people wont host 6 stars raids anymore because of this...

  • scathee
    scathee 2 months ago

    Hi Wolfey, a friend and I found this exploit earlier last week and played around with it.
    First and foremost, this ONLY worked when we directly connected with each other via Link Code. This did NOT work when we tried to lose random raids online with randoms.
    Secondly, self KO moves do not work, as we tested self destruct and explosion and both of them failed. Moves like Belly Drum or Filet Away that do a large % of your max health are the best for this.

  • Binging 4Hummels
    Binging 4Hummels 2 months ago

    More time comes off the timer when you die the higher level your pokemon is so if you bring a lvl100 and explode it goes much more quickly.

  • Dibble
    Dibble 2 months ago +3

    I mean i can see why they did this but at the same time if your a random hosting a raid and the other ppl threw, its really fustrating for the random bc they dont get the rewards. If everyone got something for losing this not moght not be as big of a issue, but now you would have ppl in random raids throwing so they get thier rewards faster while the host suffers. I feel like it should.go one way or the other, either everyone get rewards for losing or noone get rewards for losing. Or maybe this is a bug and noone is supposed to get anything for losing, i have no idea.

  • desa
    desa 2 months ago

    I guess a good setup would be having someone with Discharge and 3 people with Lv1 flying types to get killed by Discharge to defeat 3 Pokemon at once.
    The Discharge user could then use Explosion or something similar to get defeated or be weak enough for the Raid Battle Pokemon to defeat it.
    At the very least you'll have 3 Pokemon be defeafed instantly, optimally the 4th one as well.

    I want it be known.
    There's all ready people abusing this with Randoms.
    I just tried to do a 5-Star Ground Passimian with Randos.
    The guy brought Koriedon for seemingly no reason. Then did nothing for half the raid, maybe dragon clawing it, once, or cheering. But not attacking at all.
    Hope this is patched eventually.
    Pro tip;
    Don't lock in, until you vibe check your randos. I had *another* person use this exploit on me. Water Dragapult, so he locked in Armarouge. I was thinking; "Maybe he'll use shadow ball or thunderbolt, or something." Spammed flamethrower.
