Pokémon GO Raid Hour Pokémon taking over in October 2023

To battle a Legendary Pokémon has always been something that could not be missed. Not by any chance.

Starting at first as an experiment back in 2019, Raid Hour events quickly took over Pokémon GO, with many Trainers asking for them to become permanent events in the game.

These events are where Trainers gather around together and try (and mostly succeed) to defeat a Five-Star Raid Boss, which is usually a powerful Legendary Pokémon. During Raid Hour events, the appearances of these types of Raids are incredibly increased, with multiple Five-Star Raids happening at the same time.

This means that Trainers have a lot of chances to go up against a Legendary Pokémon to see who is better. Plus, as a reward you might even catch the Pokémon.

Now, every month there is a different schedule for Raid Hour events, so for October 2023, here is with what Pokémon we will be dealing:

Raid Hour schedule for October 2023:

  • October 4, 2023 – Raikou, Entei, Suicune
  • October 11, 2023; October 18, 2023 – Guzzlord
  • October 25, 2023 – Darkrai

While it is not the best Raid Hour schedule, we will still get worthy Pokémon that can become a valuable asset in our Pokémon teams for upcoming battles.

  1. I wish Niantic would remember that their PAYING players are adults with jobs & 99.99% of jobs are Monday- Friday, and our bosses don’t let us take Pokémon breaks. Special, in person, events in the middle of the week are impossible for most of their players.
