Where Are Raid Battles in Pokémon Go

Raid Battles are multiplayer Gym Battles where multiple players take on a boss Pokémon who has taken over a Gym. Players have to combine their force to defeat the Pokémon. Once that is done, all players part of the Raid Battle get some lucrative rewards that help in-game progression. 

By taking part in Raid Battles in Pokémon Go, players also have a chance to catch the boss Pokémon that they defeat during the raid. 

Raid Battles in Pokémon Go are more difficult than the normal Gym Battles, and you will often need some good players to effectively complete them. 

There are four tiers of Raid Battles in Pokémon Go:

  • Tier 1 
  • Tier 3 
  • Tier 5
