Pokémon GO Raid Hours schedule, the new Ultra Beasts to appear on May 29, 2024

What started as an experiment, turned out to be a staple Wednesday event every month. If you don’t know just by these few words what I am talking about, are you really a Trainer in Pokémon GO?

Many think that Raid Hours looked like they do today, when they were released back in 2019. What if I told you that it had a totally different name (Legendary Lunch Hour), and the duration of each Raid Hour was three hours? This version that we know today is called a Raid Hour event, with a duration of one hour.

Raid Hours usually take place every Wednesday, and they occur from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. local time. This makes it easier for us all because Niantic increases the appearance rates of each Legendary Pokémon, and we also get multiple chances to try and defeat the special Pokémon.

I have to say that May 2024 has the most exciting Raid Hours schedule, plus we will see two new Ultra Beasts coming into the game.

For those that don’t know, Ultra Beasts are extradimensional Pokémon that arrive into our paradise from Ultra Space through Ultra Wormholes. They also have very interesting appearances, and I dare to say the designs are out-of-this-world.

Many Pokémon are expecting us during May 2024 through Raid Hours, and I am excited to catch ’em all.
