Niantic can really be creative with the events that they put in Pokemon Go, but only when they want to.
Besides the obvious favorite events (hint: Community Days), the other fan-favorite event is the Raid Hour event. It is quite similar to the Spotlight Hour event, but the Raid Hour event is all about Raids (known also as Legendary Raid Hour) and Raid Bosses. March 2019 is when it all started. Every Wednesday in a month, for one hour, a Raid Hour is happening where players can find multiple five-star Raids. But this was in the testing phase still.
Later, when Niantic saw the feedback they got on Raid Hours, they decided to take this name (Raid Hour) and reschedule it to evenings instead of mornings or middays. Ever since this all was established, Raid Hour has become a staple event in Pokemon Go, where each Trainer is eager to get their hands on the Raid Bosses.
Raid Hour is known to be a “helper” to main events or even a Season. For this matter, Trainers might get an additional set of Raid Hour events, if there is a Legendary or a Mythical Pokemon involved.
