Each month, the Pokemon that appear in Pokemon Go Raids vary – here’s all you need to know about June’s Raids.
When exploring the app, Pokemon Go provides players with Raids. Raids involve Trainers to band together with others to take on very strong and tough Pokemon, with the potential to capture and add that Pokemon to your team upon its defeat.
Some of the Pokemon featured in Raids vary every month; typically, those that are stronger and appear in higher level Raid Battles. This June, Pokemon Go will make many Legendary and Mega-Evolved Pokemon accessible in Raids, with each of these Pokemon appearing at different periods throughout the month.
This month, three Legendary Pokemon will return to Five-Star Raids in Pokemon Go: Kyogra, Groudon, and Mewtwo. These Pokemon will be available in Raids on the days listed below, starting at 10 a.m. local time on each of these cycles.
