The first day they released these things we went to a raid and by some miracle there were like 15 people there. We beat it but it ran away and after that I sort of took a break from the game thinking there was basically no way we'd ever get that many people together again (since we live in a pretty rural area and most raids have a total of zero people playing). I felt like I was sort of screwed as far as catching one of these.
About a week later I was on the way home from work and saw a bunch of people standing around staring at their phones on the sidewalk so I went over and saw that they were fighting a Moltres, we won but again I had it run away. Luckily a few of them turned me on to some Facebook messenger groups where they just all agree to meet at a certain raid at a certain time and they have no problem getting a sufficient amount of people.
You definitely have to turn off notifications for those types of groups (trust me, lol) but if I'm ever on my way home and in the mood to play I pop them up and see if there's anything going on nearby. It's really the only way to play at this point. I would think there are definitely some Facebook or Discord groups in your area.
