Few things you’ll want to know about Pokémon GO’s biggest update
Experience Pokémon GO’s biggest update yet–Raid Battles in revamped Gyms! Here are a few things you’ll want to know:
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 will need a Raid Pass to battle the Raid Boss. You can get one free Raid Pass per 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 THE RAID BOSS?
If you successfully defeat the Raid Boss within the five-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.
