One of the Pokémon featured for next week's Raid Hour is Zekrom. During Raid Hour, players around the world will see an increase in the number of Level 5 Raids, half of which will feature Zekrom: the Deep Black Pokémon!

Calendar

Raid Hour is held every Wednesday from 18-19pm local time. Zekrom Raid Hours will be held three times this month: December 1, December 8, and December 15. Each Raid Hour will take place between 18 p.m. and 19 p.m. local time. Being hosted in local time means that no matter where in the world you are, the raid time will start at exactly 18pm and you won't have to adjust to any time zones.

Zekrom

  • Type: Dragon, Electric
  • Weak against: Dragon, Fairy, Ground, Ice
  • Strong against: Fire, Grass, Flying, Electric, Steel, Water
  • Remarks
    • Dragon attacks deal heavy damage to Dragon Pokémon, so it's wise to use a Pokémon that can learn a Dragon attack but isn't a Dragon-type.
    • There are no types of Pokémon that are resistant to Zekrom, so you should focus on Pokémon that can deal as much damage as possible and avoid Pokémon that take extra damage.
