On May 6 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time, Tier-5 Raid battles featuring Altered Forme Giratina will appear more frequently at Gyms than normal.
It’s important to note that Altered Forme Giratina will be appearing in Tier-5 Raids from May 5 at 1 p.m. PT until May 12 at 1 p.m. PT. However, during this Raid Hour event on May 6, those Raids will appear more frequently than they normally do.
If you want to participate in one of these Raids, but you don’t want to (or can’t) leave the house, you can use a new Remote Raid Pass to participate in a Raid remotely. Remote Raid Passes are available in the in-game Item Shop for 100 PokeCoins each (around $1). With a Remote Raid Pass, you can join any Raid you can see on the in-game map or on the Nearby screen.
Next, a new one PokeCoin bundle has been added to the game’s Item Shop. From now until May 11 at 1 p.m. PT, you can purchase a bundle containing three Incense, 20 Poke Balls, 15 Razz Berries, and 10 Pinap Berries for just one PokeCoin.
After that time, a new one PokeCoin bundle will be added to the shop. Keep checking back with SuperParent, as we’ll make sure to let you know what’s included in next week’s bundle!
