Pokemon Go Remote Raid Passes Are Now Available
Get ready to participate in Raids from home!
Earlier this month, Niantic, the developer of Pokemon Go, revealed new details about the game’s “raid from home” feature, which will allow players to participate in Raids remotely without actually leaving the house or being next to the Gym where the Raid is taking place.
Now, the game’s raid from home feature is available for all players who have reached at least Level 5 in Pokemon Go!
With this update, you can head into the in-game item shop and purchase a box containing “3 Remote Raid Passes” for 1 PokeCoin. Additional Remote Raid Passes can be purchased for 100 PokeCoins each, or in a bundle of three for 250 PokeCoins.
You’ll be able to use a Remote Raid Pass to participate in any Raid that you can see on the game’s “Nearby” screen, or on the in-game map that shows your current location and surroundings.
While up to 20 trainers can participate in a single Raid, Niantic said there will be a limit on the number of trainers who can participate in a raid using a Remote Raid Pass. For more details about how these Remote Raid Passes will affect gameplay, check out our previous coverage.
Finally, while you’re in the in-game Shop, make sure to grab this week’s 1 PokeCoin bundle. It contains 20 Ultra Balls, 15 Razz Berries, and 15 Pinap Berries. It will be available to purchase for a single PokeCoin until May 4 at 1 p.m. PT.
