Trainers, the next wave of Elite Raids in Pokemon Go starts this Sunday, and many players want to know what the next Elite Raid Boss is.
Elite Raids are a new type of Raid Battles introduced in Pokemon Go and the first Pokemon to appear in Elite Raids is Hoopa Unbound. The first wave of Elite Raids went live on October 16, 2022, and the next wave of Elite Raids is going live this Sunday, November 13, 2022.
Elite Raids take 24h to hatch and an Elite Raid Boss appears for 30 minutes. Elite Raids can only be battled in person, and players will not be able to participate in Elite Raids using Remote Raid Passes.
As we said above, the first Elite Raids went live on October 16, 2022, and we had a chance to battle and catch Hoopa Unbound. Now, according to the official Japanese Pokemon Go Twitter account, it seems like we’re getting Hoopa Unbound once again.
