Niantic has announced that they will be removing Tier 2 and Tier 4 raids from Pokémon GO. Both tiers were in a weird place difficulty wise, and the removal should make it easier to balance rewards and raiding difficulty across the board. Here’s what Niantic shared via Twitter:
Trainers, we’ve made some changes to the raid tiers:
- There will no longer be two-star or four-star raids.
- Pokémon from two-star and four-star raids have been added to the tier below them, respectively.
- Rewards for one-star raids and three-star raids are increased to what two-star and four-star raids awarded, respectively.
We’ll be releasing a more detailed update on these changes soon. Thank you!
