Pokémon Go: Legendary Raid Hours

Pokemon Go banner

Until further notice, legendary raid hours have been suspended to support social distancing measures.

While legendary raids are still available in some gyms, once a week, they occupy virtually all gyms for an entire hour. These legendary raid hours offer players a chance to get together with a team and take on several of the current legendary raid bosses at once. How do they work and what are they currently offering? Read ahead to find out!

What are legendary raid hours?

A feature originally introduced in June 2019, Legendary Raid Hours is a weekly event in which virtually all gymnasiums are taken up by legendary raids. These raids are available throughout the hour and allow players to attempt multiple raids with the current legendary raid boss. Each Raid requires a Raid Pass, which you usually get one per day by spinning a Pokéstop, but there are also Battle Premium Passes for 100 Poké coins in the Poké store if you need them more after using your daily gift. These are still legendary raids, which means they require multiple players. Players are encouraged to team up for the hour so that they can move from one gymnasium to another until they have exhausted their raid passes or the time is over.


What is the next legendary raid hour?

Previously, legendary raid hours were held every Wednesday evening from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time. It is likely that they will take place at the same time.

What is the current legendary raid boss?

Currently, Thundurus and Cobalion are the legendary raid bosses, but will not be featured in another legendary raid hour at this time.
