Pokemon GO Spooky Legendary Raid Hours and new EX-Raid Bosses

Niantic announced new Spooky Legendary Raid Hours in October, and according to their announcement, a new EX Raid Boss will be taking over EX Raids. The feature will promote more frequent fights with the currently featured Legendary Pokemon. This is considered as a rare encounter in Pokemon GO, and trainers are looking forward to it.

Legendary Raid Hours start on October 2, 9, 16 from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM bringing more EX Raid bosses between October 23 and 30. Some of the schedules above may interfere with the Trainers’ schedule, and sadly Niantic cannot cater to each of them separately.

According to the official statement:


We’re excited to announce that there will be more Legendary Raid Hours taking place in October! For one hour every Wednesday evening, Raid Battles with the currently featured Legendary Pokémon will happen more frequently.

Date + Time

From 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in your local time zone on the following dates:

  • October 2, 9, and 16, 2019: Altered Forme Giratina
  • October 23 and 30, 2019: To Be Announced


  • There will be an increased number of five-star raids during the event hour.

As always, Trainers, be mindful of your surroundings and of others around you while playing Pokémon GO. Stay tuned for more updates.

Happy raiding!
