Raids featuring Blacephalon and Stakataka in Pokémon GO during May 2024

Whenever we get a new Pokémon in the game, I feel that ecstatic feeling that I get before meeting with Ultra Beasts or new Shiny Pokémon.

That feeling is back.

Every month Pokémon GO has a surge of new content updates, which are always amazing to participate in. Trainers almost always get something new, and for a moment, everybody is happy and full of good energy. Well, I think that the entire month of May in 2024 will be providing Trainers the good vibes, especially when it comes to raids.

Raids are happening in Gyms, and usually a Raid Boss takes over for some time, which is 45 minutes. Before seeing the Pokémon, there is an Egg on top of the eligible Gym with a timer, indicating the time the Egg needs to hatch. Once it is done hatching, Trainers can enter and try to defeat the powerful Pokémon, which is a Legendary Pokémon, or a Pokémon that can’t be found in the wild.

May 2024 is bringing two new Raid Bosses, and these Pokémon are known as Ultra Beasts. They are called Blacephalon and Stakataka. Nonetheless, let’s see what the Raid schedule is for May 2024.
