Thanks to all of the hard work of Pokémon GO players over the last few days we have a brand-new raid day to look forward to. The Pokémon GO Raikou Raid Day has been confirmed, and it will be an excellent opportunity to catch this legendary thunder dog. This is all because of players doing so well in Chicago’s Pokémon GO Fest which has unlocked this special day. 

You just need to make sure you’re ready for this unique opportunity so you and your team can catch as many as possible. There’s even a small chance that you’ll be able to get a shiny Raikou, the rarest possible form. All you need to do is make sure you're ready to Pokémon GO. 

Pokémon GO Raikou Raid Day Start Time

The Pokémon GO Raikou Raid Day starts 4pm local time on Saturday, June 29th. This means that no matter where you are in the world, this is the time that you need to be visiting the gym around you to take part in this raid. The event last until 7pm local time, so you need to make the most of these few hours in order to build yourself an army of Raikou. 

You’ll be given five free Raid Passes to kick things off, but after that, you’ll have to revert to the Premium Raid Passes instead. You need these passes to be able to take part in a raid and to get the most out of them, the best thing to do is to find a lot of likeminded trainers. Then you can all venture about catching this legendary beast together. 

Now that you know everything about the Pokémon GO Raikou Raid Day, why not have a look at some of our other Pokémon GO guides by going to our Hub? Then, head on over to Prima Games on Twitter and give us a follow, you’ll never miss a thing in gaming again.
