During each Raid Hour, the featured Pokémon for the week will have a massively increased spawn rate in 5-Star Raids for one hour, which is always 18-19 PM local time. This means that no matter where you are in the world, Raid Time will always start at 18 p.m. for you. These Raid Hours will not only include these special Pokemon, but they will also appear much more frequently.
That's all there is to know about Raid Hours this month!
