Pokemon GO Legendary And Mega Raid Boss Schedule (January 2023)

Another year of raids starts here.

The second month of Mythical Wishes has arrived, which means we have our first month of content in Pokemon GO since ringing in the new year. So far, 2023 seems like an exciting year for raid bosses in general, and January alone has some interesting rotations of Legendary or Mega raid bosses.
