Quick Links

  • Five-Star Raids
  • Mega Raids

Pokemon Go offers players with Raids when adventuring within its app. Raids require Trainers to group up with others to take on extremely powerful and challenging Pokemon; rewarding you with the opportunity to catch and add that Pokemon to your team upon its defeat.

Each month, some of the Pokemon that are seen in Raids change; traditionally those that are stronger and appear in the higher tiered Raid Battles. For the month of June this year, Pokemon Go will be making several Legendary and Mega-Evolved Pokemon available in Raids; each of these Pokemon appearing during specific times throughout the month.
