Trainers, Niantic and Pokemon Go will be giving free Remote Raid Pass to everyone, starting from October 5, 2020.
The free Remote Raid Pass will be available to everyone and starting from October 5, 2020, at 1 PM PDT until November 30, 2020, at 1 PM PST, you’ll get a free Remote Pass every Monday. That being said, you’ll get one free Remote Raid Pass per week.
Now, each of these free Remote Raid Pass (if my math is good you’ll get a total of nine) will be available only for a week and you must have less than three Remote Raid Passes to claim the weekly free Remote Raid Pass.
Here is the official announcement:
Enjoy a limited-time promotion for Remote Raid Passes! From Monday, October 5, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PDT (GMT −7) to Monday, November 30, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PST (GMT −8), there will be a free Remote Raid Pass available every Monday.
Each Remote Raid Pass will be available for only a week, so be sure to check the in-game shop each week to claim that week’s Remote Raid Pass before it’s gone.
As a reminder, you must have fewer than three Remote Raid Passes to claim the weekly free Remote Raid Pass.
With a Remote Raid Pass, you’ll be able to join any Raid Battle you can see in the RAID section of the Nearby screen or that you can tap on the map. Did you know that the faster you win a raid, the more rewards you’ll get? Be sure to battle in raids with your friends so you can win as fast as possible! No matter where your friends are, you can invite them to your raid lobby as long as they have a Remote Raid Pass.
Are you ready to raid with friends? Pick up a Remote Raid Pass, and let’s GO!
