Trainers who decide to participate in Raid Battles will be eligible for the following rewards:
|Rare Candy||Golden Razz Berry||Charged TM||Fast TM|
- Opportunity to catch the Raid Boss in a de-powered, normal CP range state. However, the encounter features a high or perfect IV version of the Pokémon that was featured as a Raid Boss.
- Premier Balls are given to participating Trainers, so you won’t waste your own Balls on capture attempts.
- Raid Bosses are very difficult to capture and have a high run away rate – this is intentional and confirmed by Niantic to stay this way
- Golden Razz Berry is a stronger version of the commonly available Razz Berry, making capturing even more easier than using an ordinary Razz Berry. Golden Razz has an interesting hidden property: it restores your Pokémon motivation completely!
- Rare Candy is a special kind of Candy that is applicable to any Pokémon. Rare Candy enables you to power up any Pokémon, no matter of which Species it is.
- Technical Machines are special items which enable move rerolling. They come in two variants:
- Fast Technical Machine – for rerolling a Quick (Fast) Move on a Pokémon
- Charged Technical Machine – for rerolling a Charged Move on a Pokémon
