Pokemon Go Current Shadow Raid Bosses
Trainers, the Shadow Raids are live in Pokemon Go, and you can now battle and catch different Shadow Pokemon and their Shiny Forms from one-star and three-star Shadow Raids.
The Shadow Raids are a new addition to the game, and players are loving it. The Shadow Raid Bosses are very powerful, but you are the best of the best, and you can beat the Shadow Pokemon in no time.
For the debut of Shadow Raids, Team Go Rocket will be taking over Gyms with all sorts of Shadow Pokemon. Just like regular Raids, Trainers can team up to take down the Shadow Raid Bosses. Shadow Raids will also host One-Star, Three-Star Raids, and Five-star Shadow Raids. Shadow Mewtwo will be taking over Five-Star Shadow Raids on May 27, through May 28, 2023. Shadow Mewtwo can be shiny, so make sure to save the date and get yourself Shiny Shadow Mewtwo.
As time progresses and the more damage you deal to Shadow Raid Bosses, those Bosses will become enraged and will have boosts in attacks and defenses. This takes Shadow Raids to a whole new level.
As for purification, a feature not favorable among Trainers, Shadow Raid Bosses can be purified through Purified Gems (assembled through Shadow Shards). This new item can be very useful though. You can purify a Shadow Raid Boss, and lower the Shadow Boss’ attack and defense for a limited period.
If more than one Trainer uses Purified Gems in a battle, the effect stacks up, giving you more power to defeat the Shadow Raid Boss. The great thing is that if enough Purified Gems are used in a battle, then the angered Shadow Raid Boss will return to its normal stage, giving you more power and making the Shadow Raid Boss easier to defeat.
This is a Purified Gem.
Use this item during a Shadow Raid to temporarily lower the attack and defense of an enraged #ShadowRaid Boss.
You and your fellow Trainers can use more than one Purified Gem during a Shadow Raid. If used at the same time, their effects will stack. pic.twitter.com/Aos5tziU26
