Prepare For Battle!
One of the most exciting things about Pokemon is participating in Raids! There are several tips and tricks that can give you an advantage when in a raid and we have a library of them for you to access here.
You may have noticed that just before a raid begins in Pokemon Go, there’s an egg placed above the gym. These eggs appear in a variety of colors and the raid egg color has meaning in Pokemon Go. This article covers the Pokemon Go raid egg color so you know what to expect as you prepare for battle. Of course, Niantic is constantly updating the game, so if anything changes we’ll be sure to update this article.
Pokemon Go Raid Egg Color
|Egg Color||Boss Tier|
|Pink||1 or 2|
|Yellow||3 or 4|
If you’ve checked out our Raid Boss list you already know that these raid bosses are classified by a star tier system so you know how difficult the coming battle will be. The egg color ties directly into this system by letting you know which star tier Pokemon is about to emerge. The higher the star tier the more difficult the raid boss will be. At present raids go up to tier 5, with legendary Pokemon appearing in tier 5 during the time periods in which they're available (they are only available one at a time). You can check out our Pokemon Go game hub for information on each of the legendary raid boss.
