Pokémon GO Raid Hours January 2024

Ever since Raid Hour rolled out in Pokémon GO in 2020, it’s been a real game-changer for players keen on catching Legendary, Mythical, and very rare Pokémon. Before this weekly event was in the picture, players had limited shots at showing off their Pokémon prowess and bagging those rewards. Thanks to Raid Hour, trainers have been getting their hands on rare Pokémon and a nice stash of Candy on the regular for a few years now.

The original plan was to schedule the Raid Hour during lunchtime, but it turns out that’s not the prime time for most Pokémon GO players. Taking this into account, Niantic shifted gears. Now, Raid Hour happens every Wednesday from 6 PM to 7 PM, a much more player-friendly window.

The best bit? Raid Hour brings out a specific Pokémon, usually of the legendary variety, and switches it up every week. The number of Gyms also gets a boost, so there are more raids to jump into.
