Pokemon GO Raid Battles now available to Level 5 players and above

As Niantic promised, it was a matter of time before Raid Battles rolled out to the world. Now trainers level 5 and above can participate in Pokemon GO Raid Battles!

Once again, here’s a breakdown on how the co-op Raid Battles work.


What are Raid Battles? A Raid Battle is a cooperative gameplay experience that encourages you to work with other Trainers to defeat an extremely powerful Pokémon known as the Raid Boss.

How do you participate? Before a Raid Battle begins, a large Egg will appear atop the Gym with a countdown timer. When the countdown reaches zero, the Raid Boss will be revealed. You’ll need a Raid Pass, to battle the Raid Boss, and you can get one for free each day by visiting a Gym. You and up to 20 other Trainers can work together to defeat the Raid Boss.

What do you get if you defeat a Raid Boss? If you successfully defeat the Raid Boss within the three-minute time limit, you’ll have the chance to catch that Pokémon! In addition, you’ll receive a selection of rewards, which can include Rare Candies, Golden Razz Berries, and two types of Technical Machines—Fast TMs and Charged TMs.
