Pokémon Go: Legendary Raid Hours

In Pokémon Go, Legendary Raids are still available at some Gyms, but once a week they take up virtually all Gyms for an entire hour. These Legendary Raid Hours offer players a chance to reunite with a team and face multiple current Legendary Raid Bosses in one go. How do they work and what do they currently offer?

What are Legendary Raid Hours in Pokémon Go?

A feature originally introduced in June 2019, Legendary Raid Times is a weekly event where virtually all Gyms are taken over by the current Legendary Raid Boss. Unlike normal raids, these raids last all the time. These are still legendary raids, meaning they require multiple players, so players are encouraged to team up for the hour so they can move from gym to gym until they’ve used up their raid passes or the hour is up. If it’s not safe in your area to coordinate with a squad, you can still participate using Remote Raid Passes and an Online Squad.
