The Evolving Stars Event has just ended, and the upcoming Festival of Lights event starts October 14, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. local time, meaning Trainers are in a strange place – the old Raid Bosses are gone, and the new Festival of Lights bosses haven’t started appearing yet.
Here’s a complete list of currently available Raid Bosses in Pokémon GO. These battles are available from today, October 12, 2022, to October 14, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. local time.
Available from October 12, 2022, at 6:00 a.m. to October 14, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. local time.

What to raid?
- Xerneas is always a lovely addition to your PokéDex, and while it is not a top tier attacker, it can be quite difficult to obtain outside of events. Especially in its Shiny form, so be sure to snag one while you can.
- Alolan Vulpix (when evolved into A-Ninetales), Togetic (evolved into Togekiss) and Azumarill are all excellent PvP battles, so getting one if you already don’t have one is a must this Raiding cycle
- Jigglypuff, Spritze and Swirlix are available commonly enough through various events and occasional wild spawns, so we wouldn’t spend our passes here if there are better options
- Remember that during the Season of Light, you get up to two free Raid Passes per day by spinning Gym Photo Discs
