Pokémon GO Tapu Bulu to appear in Gyms during Raid Hour Today April 17, 2024

You know what a Trainer does during Raid Hours? They go from Gym to Gym to battle the Pokémon that is the grand prize.

I speak that from experience though, don’t get me wrong. I put on my shoes and walk as long as I can, to try and find Gyms that are hosting the Five-Star Raid Battles. That only happens every Wednesday in the month, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. local time. What is interesting is that the Pokémon that are featured as Raid Bosses during Raid Hours are Legendary Pokémon i.e. tough to get in the wild. Well, impossible I should say, since they don’t appear in the wild, only in Raid Battles.

Now that I’ve created a picture in your mind of how a Raid Hour event looks like in Pokémon GO, on April 17, 2024, which is today, Trainers will have the chance to battle against Tapu Bulu, the Land Spirit Pokémon. Best to prepare for a battle beforehand, right?
