Hoopa Unbound returns to Elite Raids!

What are Elite Raids?

  • Elite Raids are a new, challenging variety of Raid Battles. They appear from special Raid Eggs that take 24 hours to hatch. Once the Raid Egg has hatched, a Raid Boss appears for 30 minutes—but take note that Elite Raid Bosses can only be battled in-person. Gather up your friends and prepare for an epic confrontation!
  • Defeat Hoopa Unbound, and you’ll earn an opportunity to catch it.
  • Remember, Trainers will not be able to participate in Elite Raids using Remote Raid Passes.

Elite Raids begin at the following times and will last 30 minutes:

  • 11:00 am local time
  • 2:00 pm local time
  • 5:00 pm local time

It is not confirmed when the Raid Eggs will begin appearing on top of Gyms. The previous wave of Elite Raids was 24 hours prior.

Bonus Spawns after completing an Elite Raid

During the last set of Elite Raids, Trainers received a 15-minute bonus of special spawns in the wild around the Gym the raid took place. Pokémon in the wild included Meinfoo, Wooloo, Noibat, and Rufflet. The Legendary Birds Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres were also appearing in the wild depending on the when the raid egg hatched (eg. 11 am, 2 pm, or 5 pm)

It’s not confirmed that this will happen this time around but its something to look out for.
