Pokemon Go Community ‘Celebrates’ First Year Since Remote Raid Pass Changes Announcement

Trainers, on this day, last year in 2023, Niantic and Pokemon Go made the biggest mistake that could be made, and that was the changes with Remote Raids Passes.

It’s been exactly one year since Niantic and Pokemon Go officially announced changes to Remote Raid Passes. These changes went into effect a week later, on April 6, 2023, and to this day the community disagrees with what they’ve done.

Niantic and Pokemon Go announced on March 30th, 2023 that they will be increasing the price and limit of Remote Raid Passes, and said that “These changes are designed to rebalance the game and ensure it’s enjoyed by Trainers for years to come.”

Here are all the changes that happened then:

Remote Raids Changes Pokemon Go

Pricing adjustments

  • The price of the Remote Raid Pass three-pack will increase to 525 PokeCoins.
  • The price of single Remote Raid Passes will increase to 195 PokeCoins.
  • A Premium Battle Pass three-pack will be added to the shop for the price of 250 PokeCoins.

Remote Raid participation limits

  • Trainers will be able to participate in a maximum of five Remote Raids per day.
  • This maximum may change and increase for special events.

Remote Raid Passes

  • Remote Raid Passes will be included in the pool of potential rewards for Research Breakthroughs.
  • Remote Raid Passes earned via Research Breakthroughs will still be subject to the existing inventory limit of three Remote Raid Passes per Trainer.
  • If a Trainer earns a Remote Raid Pass from a Research Breakthrough while at the three Remote Raid Pass limit, they will receive a Premium Battle Pass instead.
  • Purchases of Remote Raid Pass 3-Packs will still allow you to hold up to 5 Remote Raid Passes if you purchase it with 2 Remote Passes already in your inventory.

Candy XL

  • Trainers who participate in five-star raids in person will earn more Candy XL than before.

Pokemon Go players have also started a petition which has been signed by many. Unfortunately, this too failed to change their minds.

Some tried to do something we didn’t agree with and sent threats to the Pokemon Go Community Manager.


Eventually, the Pokemon Go community gave it a try and sent an open letter to Niantic, and thus the HearUsNiantic movement was born.

Unfortunately, a year has passed, and there has been no change, not even a response from them.

What is your opinion about this whole situation? Have you come to terms with these changes? We feel that this change has damaged the Pokemon Go community’s relationship with those in charge and it will never be the same.
