Trainers, the last Darkrai Raid Hour takes place today, October 30, from 6 PM to 7 PM local time. From 6 PM to 7 PM there will be an increased number of Raids featuring Darkrai. Darkrai leaves Pokemon GO raids after November 1 (1 p.m. PDT), making this one of the last chances to get it. Confirmation from New Zealand has already arrived on reddit, so there’s no missing out on this one.

Darkrai is one of the best Dark types in Pokemon GO to date (check Darkrai in the Meta Game article by Kratos) and we expect an excellent turnout for this Raid Hour. Combine that with the fact that you can get 12 Candy per catch (Silver / Regular Pinap) and you got yourself one lucrative raid hour.

Darkrai is quite difficult to defeat and to catch. Be sure to have a 6-7 players strong group if you are not using optimized counters. We had big problems with 5 mixed level players and non-optimal counters. In order not to waste time, prepare your team ahead.
