Pokémon GO Remote Raiding Roll Out Begins

Remote Raid Pass

Trainers, Remote Raiding has started rolling out in Pokémon GO! Currently, it’s a staged roll out, starting with Level 40 Trainers and continuing with lower level Trainers as Niantic tests servers for stability and throughput.

We have some early screenshots to share:

Dataminers have reported the following findings in their initial pass, just a few moments ago (usual disclaimers about data mining applies here as well – this information is not endorsed by Niantic and can change at any moment):

Remote raid ticket

template {
  template_id: "ITEM_REMOTE_RAID_TICKET"
  data {
    template_id: "ITEM_REMOTE_RAID_TICKET"
    item_settings {
      item_id: ITEM_REMOTE_RAID_TICKET
      item_type: ITEM_TYPE_RAID_TICKET
      category: ITEM_CATEGORY_RAID_TICKET
      drop_trainer_level: 5
    }
  }
}

Remote raid settings

Note that Remote Raids Minimal Player Level is just used to hides the feature from lower level players:

template {
  template_id: "RAID_CLIENT_SETTINGS"
  data {
    template_id: "RAID_CLIENT_SETTINGS"
    raid_settings {
      max_remote_raid_passes: 3
      remote_damage_modifier: 1.0
      remote_raids_min_player_level: 40
    }
  }
}

This confirms what Niantic shared earlier: 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.

It also seems that we will be able to have up to 3 Remote Raid Passes at one time, rather than infinitely stacking them.

Remote Raid Passes can be purchased at following costs:

  • 1 Remote Raid Pass ⭢ 100 PokéCoins
  • 3 Remote Raid Pass ⭢ 250 PokéCoins
