Pokémon GO Trainers Urge For An Immediate Change To Raid Passes

One feature has always been problematic in Pokémon GO, and that feature is the Raid Pass.

When the pandemic hit back in 2020, the whole mechanic behind Raids was implemented beautifully, without any major mistakes. Trainers raided in harmony, everybody was content, and everybody had the Raid Boss they desired. However, that quickly turned to worse, when the pandemic was nearing its end.

Remote Raid Passes were slated, their cost went up, and that all sparked the dissatisfaction Trainers had with Pokémon GO’s maker, Niantic. Since this has become so big of a problem, Trainers are asking for some changes, which is more than understandable.

A Reddit user going by the name u/Bogshow has posted their story, where they entered a Primal Raid with eight people, but began the raid with only themselves. This prompted a response from other players, who said that they need to implement the feature that Rocket Radars have, where Trainers will not lose their RR’s until they win the battle. A smart move this would be if implemented in the future. Niantic, listen up.

Niantic really needs to make some changes to how Raid Passes work at the moment in the game.
