Raid at Anaheim water tower yesterday afternoon. Voltswitch/thunder. 96IV. I'm over the moon!

I was 2 for 9 catching Raikou after battling raids until this morning... caught my third Raikou today, and it's 100% IV (1913 CP) with Volt Switch and Thunder. I'm well aware that Volt Switch offers slightly more DPS with STAB than Thundershock, but in all honesty I find that Thundershock is far better in battle. You can't currently assign legendaries to defend gyms, so because I can only use Raikou to attack with, I'll be using a TM to switch to Thundershock. It's much faster and allows for immediate dodging in between attacks. Anyway, best of luck with these beasts. Raikou has proven to be the toughest to catch thus far, at least for me. Cheers!

Raiding Raikou 5 times, got 12 balls each. I managed to catch 1, the other 5 ran away. This thing is really tough to catch
