Pokémon GO Teases a New Raid Boss on Social Media

Posted in

Update (14:00 GMT, November 29, 2020) — Niantic has shared an additional teaser tweet, with a 29 hours long timer. A propeller airplane can be seen in the background, with the number 677 written on the flag behind it. 677 is the Pokédex number for Espurr, a Psychic type from Generation 6.


Update (23:00 GMT, November 28, 2020) — Niantic has shared another teaser tweet, this time featuring a pink raid egg with a 44 hour long timer. It looks like the earlier 6 hour timer was just the amount of time until the next announcement. The new timer ends on 11 AM PST, Monday Nov 30 2020. See you then!

Pokémon GO social media suddenly posted a new teaser video hinting at a new raid boss. We don’t have much information about this new raid boss, but from the video we can see it has a 6 hour timer.

Could this be related to the new one star raid boss that Pokémon GO teased in their huge GO Beyond update blog?

There seems to be a mysterious Pokémon preparing to hatch from a one-star Raid Egg soon! We’re tracking the progress of this Egg on our social channels, and we might need your help to get it to hatch sooner!

There has been a lot of speculation online as to what this new Raid Egg could hatch into, we’ve seen a lot of different guesses! Could we finally meet Kecleon? Could it be Scatterbug from the Kalos region? Could it be one of Rotoms many forms? Or could it be something else?

A keen eye might notice a quick flash of the Psychic type background at the 2 second mark in the trailer! Could we be getting a special psychic type one star raid boss? There are a great many incredibly popular psychic types in game.

Given how huge this teaser is… could it be that we finally get access to a second Mew? Could it be a new Kalos Pokémon like Espurr? Wildly speculate in the comments, major hype time!
