Ninatic has announced that Remote Raid Passes are coming to Pokémon GO, and we created a guide that helps you understand the Pokémon GO’s Remote Raiding Feature easily.
How it works ⚙️
In order to do Remote Raids, you need a Remote Raid Pass. Only one Remote Raid Pass will be required to join each raid, and you are able to hold up to 3 Remote Raid Passes at a time. If you are holding a Remote Raid Pass, you’ll be able to join any Raid Battle you can see on the Nearby screen or that you can tap on the map.
Twenty Trainers can join the same Raid Battle, with a limited number of Trainers using a Remote Raid Pass. You can get a Remote Raid Pass from the in-game store. Price is not yet known.
Remote Raid Passes look like this:
Launch information 🚀
At launch, Trainers battling in raids remotely will have the same attack power as Trainers who are able to battle at the raid location in person. At a later time, the attack power for Trainers battling remotely will be reduced. Afterward, a Trainer battling at the raid location in person will have higher attack power than a Trainer battling remotely.
Niantic will be making adjustments to this feature over time, including changes to the number of Trainers who can join remotely, the ability to invite friends to raids regardless of their location, and the mentioned adjustment to attack power for Trainers battling in a raid remotely.
Keep a look out for a 1 PokéCoin bundle that will feature Remote Raid Passes, coming soon to the shop! At launch, Remote Raid Passes will be available to buy individually at the special discounted price of 100 PokéCoins.
- Raid Battles that you complete with a Remote Raid Pass will count toward any raid-related research tasks or achievement medals.
