Raids are an important aspect of the Pokemon Go experience, and each month brings a new collection of Pokemon to battle and maybe catch, ranging from common 1-Stars to rare 5-Star Legendaries. Here is the current Raid Boss lineup for November 2021.
For Pokemon Go players, November is shaping up to be an exciting month. The Season of Mischief continues, the Festival of Lights will bring an end to the Halloween celebrations, and a special Community Day featuring Shinx will be held.
Trainers will be able to add the Swords of Justice trio Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion to their Pokedex, while the Legendary Psychic-type Cresselia will emerge in 5-Star Raids for the month’s second half.
It also looks that from now on, only one Mega-evolved Pokemon will appear in Mega Raids at a time, making it much more difficult to obtain the Mega Energy you require.
Schedule for Pokemon Go Raid Boss in November 2021
The Raids schedule for November has been published by Niantic, and there are some thrilling battles to be had! The return of Cresselia and the Legendary Swords of Justice trio in 5-Star Raids is particularly noteworthy.
This month, you’ll be able to find the following Pokemon in Raids:
|Mega Absol||October 22 – November 5|
|Mega Manectric||November 5 – November 16|
|Mega Lopunny||November 16 – December 1|
|Darkrai (with Sludge Bomb)||October 22 – November 5|
|Cobalion||November 5 – November 16|
|Terrakion||November 5 – November 16|
|Virizion||November 5 – November 16|

|Alolan Marowak||Banette||Drifblim (Halloween Mischief costume)||Lampent|
|Galarian Yamask||Murkrow||Phantump||Pumpkaboo (Average Size)||Yamask|
The Ghoulish Pals event has thrown a wrench into the Raid schedule, introducing new characters Phantump and Pumpkaboo, as well as Galarian Yamask, who can only be found during Halloween.
Mega Raids and 5-Star Raids will adhere to the aforementioned timetable, however 1-Star and 3-Star Raids are subject to vary at any time, especially during special events. Keep checking back for the most up-to-date Raid opportunities!

When are Raid Hours scheduled?
Niantic organises a unique Raid Hour every week in order to give players a higher chance of capturing the current 5-Star Raid Pokemon. All Raid-filled gyms will be 5-Star, meaning Darkrai will be 5-Star at the start of November.
Every Wednesday from 6 to 7 p.m., Raid Hours will take place, and you won’t have to worry about time zones because it will always be your local time. This is an excellent opportunity to go out and capture a Legendary.
What are Raid Battles in Pokemon Go?
When a Boss Pokemon takes over a Gym, Raid Battles commence. You can discover them by roaming around local Gyms and looking for eggs about to hatch or Boss Pokemon that are currently participating in a Raid.
Because these Pokemon are so powerful, it’s best if you partner up with a few other trainers to ensure a triumph. 1-Star, 3-Star, 5-Star, and Mega Raids are the four tiers. The combat becomes more difficult as the tier increases.
Raid Battles, on the other hand, are well worth the time and work it takes to finish. You’ll be able to catch the Pokemon you battle in addition to collecting special goods. These will be Legendaries that you can’t find anyplace else in 5-Star Raids.
How to get Raid Passes in Pokemon Go
A Raid Pass is required to participate in a Raid Battle. Each day, spin the Photo Disc at any Gym to win one Raid Pass. If you run out, a Premium Raid Pass can be purchased from the Shop.
Remote Raid Passes are now accessible in Go as well. These are perfect for trainers who are unable to leave the house, as they allow you to participate in any Raid Battle that is displayed on the Nearby screen or accessible through the Map View.
Remote Raid Passes can be purchased in the Shop or occasionally acquired as free gifts.
How to catch Pokemon in Raid Battles
You’ll be able to catch a Raid Boss if you fight it successfully. You’ll be given a certain number of Premier Balls to utilise, but catching it isn’t assured, especially if it’s a Legendary.
Here are some suggestions for increasing your Premier Balls:
- Assail the Raid boss with a large quantity of damage.
- The Raid boss takes a lot of damage from your crew.
- Controlling the Raid’s location in the gym.
- Raids with buddies are a lot of fun.
- Remember that Razz Berries, or even better, Golden Razz Berries, can be used to aid in the capture of Raid bosses. Having great pitches or spinning curveballs will also help your chances.
Now that you know everything there is to know about Raids and the creatures you can combat in Gyms this month, it’s time to go out and catch some Pokemon – maybe even a Legendary. Trainers, best of luck!
