Legendary Raid Battles

Several Legendary Pokémon are coming to Raid Battles, and if you’re lucky, you could end up encountering a Shiny one!


This Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon is said to represent the crescent moon, but don’t let its graceful exterior lull you during battle. Psychic-type Pokémon are weak against Bug-, Ghost-, and Dark-type Pokémon, so be sure to have those ready!

  • When: May 27th at 1PM PT / 4PM ET / 9PM BST / 10PM CEST – May 28th at 5AM JST to May 28th 1PM PT / 4PM ET / 9PM BST / 10PM CEST – May 29th at 5AM JST


The Sea Basin Pokémon is said to have widened the seas and waged battle with Groudon. This Water-type Pokémon is weak against Grass- and Electric-type Pokémon. Can you earn this powerful creature’s trust and convince it to battle alongside you?

  • When: June 18th at 1PM PT / 4PM ET / 9PM BST / 10PM CEST – June 19th at 5AM JST to June 19th 1PM PT / 4PM ET / 9PM BST / 10PM CEST – June 20th at 5AM JST


Groudon is said to have dueled titanically with Kyogre before falling into a deep slumber. It’s a Ground-type Pokémon, so, Trainers, this means Water-, Grass-, and Ice-type Pokémon are your best bets for defeating this powerful opponent!

  • When: June 27th at 1PM PT / 4PM ET / 9PM BST / 10PM CEST – June 28th at 5AM JST to June 28th 1PM PT / 4PM ET / 9PM BST / 10PM CEST – June 29th at 5AM JST

Community Day

Niantic have announced that the new Community Day (on June 8th) will feature Slakoth. It will also feature the following bonuses:

  • 1/4 Egg Hatch Distance
  • 3-Hour Lures

According to the official Twitter account in Taiwan, Slaking will get the move Body Slam when evolved during the event (and up until 1 hour after it, as usual). That tweet has since been deleted, so it may be different in the actual event.

Here’s when the Community Day will take place: June 8th from 3PM to 6PM local time.

Here’s a short video promoting the Community Day:
