A U.S. CBDC: Disaster, or An Idea Who’s Time Has Come?

The notion of a digital dollar for the United States has been increasingly in the news over the last month. Research into a potential Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) was called for by an executive order from President Biden in March, and it’s easy to see why: between efforts abroad from China to make moves in the space, to the increasing adoption rate of cryptocurrencies and other faster payments technologies, it’s clear to see that the technology has caught up to the vision, and implementation could offer significant advantages. However, not everyone thinks that a Federal Reserve-backed digital currency is

Pokemon Go Tapu Bulu Raid Guide: Best Counters, Weaknesses, Raid Hours, And More Tips

Niantic has announced the full slate of five-star raids for Pokemon Go in April, and trainers should prepare to face off against the third Alolan island guardian starting April 12.

Tapu Bulu, the game's third Legendary Pokemon hailing from the Alolan region, has been named as the latest Pokemon Go five-star raid, running from now until April 26. Tapu Bulu's time as the five-star raid Pokemon was announced along with the Pokemon Go April 2022 event schedule, which runs concurrently with the game's Season of Alola event introducing Pokemon Sun and Moon to the game.

Tapu Bulu is the third "Tapu" Pokemon to be introduced to Pokemon Go, with Tapu Koko and Tapu Lele already in the game and only Tapu Fini still to come. If you caught Tapu Koko and Tapu Lele you're on your way to completing the set, so if you're going to challenge the Tapu Bulu raid check out our tips below.

Tapu Bulu will be the featured five-star raid April 12-26, with two special Raid Hours planned during that time.

Tapu Bulu Raid Schedule

Tapu Bulu enters the five-star Raid ring starting April 12 at 10 AM local time, remaining there until 8 PM on April 26. Unfortunately the game does not follow any set schedules with its raid--there's no guarantee Tapu Bulu will be waiting for you--but the game constantly tells you who's around to raid, so just keep an eye out.

There is a glimmer of hope for those who need a Tapu Bulu appearance though: Pokemon Go's weekly Raid Hour on Wednesday night. Two of April's Raid Hour events--April 13 and 20 from 6 PM to 7 PM local time--will feature the Land Spirit Pokemon at nearly every Gym in the game. If you want a guaranteed shot at Tapu Bulu, gather your friends and head out after dinner on those two Wednesday nights.

Tapu Bulu Weaknesses And Counters

Tapu Bulu is a Grass- and Fairy-type Pokemon, a rare type duo in the world of Pokemon shared only by four other Pokemon: Generation V's Cottonee and Whimsicott, and Generation VII's Morelull and Shiinotic. While Tapu Bulu's typing is hard to find elsewhere, its five weaknesses should make building a team to counter it much easier to pin down.

Poison-type Pokemon are Tapu Bulu's Poke-Kryptonite, with Poison-type moves seeing increased effectiveness against both Grass and Fairy Pokemon. As such, Weezing, Nidoking/Nidoqueen, Muk, and Gengar will be invaluable in a fight with this island deity.

Fire-, Flying-, Ice-, and Steel-type moves are also extra effective against Tapu Bulu, so any mixture of Skarmory, Charizard--perhaps the Mega Charizard Y you caught in the current Mega Raid--Ho-Oh, Articuno, or Alolan Ninetales will be helpful in the battle ahead.

Types To Avoid

The Grass- and Fairy-type Tapu Bulu is resistant to seven Pokemon types, nearly half of the 18 types featured in Pokemon games, so there are plenty of Pokemon to avoid. Dark-, Dragon-, Electric-, Fighting-, Grass-, Ground-, and Water-type Pokemon will all be battling from behind against Tapu Bulu, so leave traditionally powerful Pokemon like Blastoise, Dragonite, Lucario, Umbreon, and Absol behind when challenging the raid.

There's still some time before Tapu Bulu joins the five-star raid roster, so get yourself ready by catching as many Grass-types as you can during the current Lush Jungle event, or take on the current five-star raid Tapu Lele if you haven't done so already.

Pokemon Go Thundurus Therian Forme Raid Guide: Best Counters, Weaknesses, Raid Hours, And More Tips

Niantic has announced the full slate of raids for Pokemon Go in April, and trainers will meet the second Therian Forme of a Unova-region legendary beginning April 5.

Thundurus Therian Forme is on its way to Pokemon Go once again, featuring as the five-star raid April 5-12. It follows Tornadus Therian Forme's run as the top raid which ran from March 15 to March 20. Thundurus Therian Forme's time as a five-star raid Pokemon was announced along with the Pokemon Go April 2022 event schedule, which runs concurrently with the game's Season of Alola event introducing Pokemon Sun and Moon to the game.

Thundurus Therian Forme is the second of three Therian Forme legendaries to rotate into the five-star raid scene, with the final member of the trio Landorus Therian Forme entering the arena April 26. If you caught Tornadus and plan on taking on Landorus, you might as well challenge the Thundurus raid as well, so check out our tips below.

Thundurus Therian Forme returns to Pokemon Go in mid-April.

Thundurus Therian Forme Raid Schedule

Thundurus Therian Forme enters the five-star Raid ring starting April 5 at 10 AM local time, remaining there until 8 PM on April 12. Unfortunately the game does not follow any set schedules with its raid--there's no guarantee Thundurus will be charging into a Gym for a battle--but the game constantly tells you who's around to raid, so just keep an eye out.

There is one hope for those who need a Thundurus Therian Forme appearance though: Pokemon Go's weekly Raid Hour on Wednesday nights. The Raid Hour event on April 6--running from 6 PM to 7 PM local time--will feature the Bolt Strike Pokemon at nearly every Gym in the game. If you want a guaranteed shot at Thundurus Therian Forme, gather your friends and head out after dinner on April 6.

Thundurus Therian Forme And Counters

Thundurus Therian Forme is an Electric- and Flying-type Pokemon, a combination that does not yield very many weaknesses. In fact, only two of Pokemon's 18 types will produce extra damage to this beast, so it's important to know what those are and plan accordingly.

Ice- and Rock-type Pokemon are the only two Pokemon types with moves that will deal extra damage to Thundurus Therian Forme. Unfortunately the only Pokemon in existence with that dual-typing, Generation VI's Aurorus, isn't in Pokemon Go yet, so you'll have to get creative with your team. Alolan Ninetales is a solid choice for this raid, as it's a powerful attacker with no weakness to Thundurus's attacks, while Beartic, Lycanroc, Sudowoodo, and two of the three Regis in Regirock and Regice will also make great choices.

Types To Avoid

Thundurus has triple the amount of resistances that it has weaknesses, meaning one-third of all Pokemon types will do reduced damage in the heat of battle. Bug-, Fighting-, Flying-, Grass-, Ground-, and Steel-type Pokemon are all weak against Thundurus's Electric- and Flying-type barrage, so do not bring any Pokemon or use any attacks of those types and you should be home free.

There's still some time before Thundurus Therian Forme joins the five-star raid roster, so get yourself ready by taking on the current five-star raid Tapu Lele or the Mega Charizard Y Mega Raid if you haven't done so already.
