Pokémon GO reintroduces Hoopa Unbound with new Elite Raids
An elite challenge for all trainers!
Pokémon GO has just announced a new type of raid for the game called “Elite Raids” via Twitter, here’s the full post below.
The first of the Elite raids will feature a chance to catch the mythical Psychic/Dark Pokémon, Hoopa Unbound. Here’s all the details from the Pokémon GO website.
Elite Raids are a new, challenging variety of Raid Battles. They appear from special Raid Eggs that take 24 hours to hatch. Once the Raid Egg has hatched, a Raid Boss appears for 30 minutes—but take note that Elite Raid Bosses can only be battled in-person. Gather up your friends and prepare for an epic confrontation!
Defeat Hoopa Unbound, and you’ll earn an opportunity to catch it.
Remember, Trainers will not be able to participate in Elite Raids using Remote Raid Passes.
Please note that the first of these raids will begin at 11:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m., or 5:00 p.m. local time on October 16th, 2022, depending on when their Raid Eggs appear.
While it is a shame that these raids can’t be participated in remotely it is cool that the 24 hour hatch time allows trainers a chance to prepare. Pokémon GO has also stated that there will be more elite raids in the future so who knows what other special Pokémon can get the spotlight?
