Still the raids of beating Zeraora can prove to be a benefit to the players. Every 100,000 players that beat it after the initial 1,000,000, trainers will be receiving a piece of Armorite Ore. You are allowed to trade this ore for the special moves in the Dojo. So you will have to beat Zerora if you haven’t yet defeated it.
