Pokemon Go: Take on Darkrai, Virizion, and Altered Forme Giratina in Raids
Each pocket monster will be available to battle for a limited time.
Trainers, Pokemon Go is celebrating the release of Remote Raid Passes by adding three powerful Pokemon to Tier-5 Raids.
Remote Raid Passes are premium items that allow players to compete in Raids from home, without being near the Gym in the real-world where the Raid is taking place. Check out our previous coverage for more information.
To start, from now until May 5 at 1 p.m. PT, Darkrai will be available to challenge in Tier-5 Raids. This Dark-type Mythical Pokemon is from Gen IV of the Pokemon universe.
Then, from May 5 at 1 p.m. PT until May 12 at 1 p.m. PT, Altered Forme Giratina -- a Ghost- and Dragon-type Legendary Pokemon from Gen IV -- will make its appearance in Tier-5 Raids.
Finally, from May 12 at 1 p.m. PT until May 19 at 1 p.m. PT, Virizion will appear in Tier-5 Raids. This Grass- and Fighting-type Legendary Pokemon was introduced in Gen V of the Pokemon universe.
