We've compiled a full list of Raid Hours coming to Pokemon GO this month, July 2022.

Raid Hours are weekly events trainers can take part in every Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., local time. During this hour, a single Pokemon is featured and becomes the primary Raid boss in Gyms throughout the game — a mirror of the popular Spotlight Hour.

Here's when trainers can take advantage and grab some powerful legendary Raid bosses.

Pokemon GO July 2022 Raid Hours: Full List

There are four Raid Hour events this July 2022. Each of these features one of Kanto's legendary bird trio — Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres — with a surprise cameo by Dialga.

  • July 6: Articuno
  • July 13: Zapdos
  • July 20: Moltres
  • July 27: Dialga

Articuno, the first of the birds, is an ice and flying-type which makes it especially weak to rock-types. In raids, it can have a CP threshold of 40165. The best counter choices for it would be Pokemon like Rampardos, Rhyperior, Mega Aerodactyl, and Tyranitar with all rock-type movesets.

Zapdos, an electric and flying-type, is the second in the trio and can have a Raid Boss CP threshold of 46418. It is particularly weak to ice and rock-types, making its most effective counter choices Rampardos, Abomasnow, Rhyperior, and Mamoswine.

Moltres is the last in the Kanto legendary bird trio and is a fire and flying-type. It can have a Raid Boss CP threshold of 45609. Like its trio siblings, it is also particularly weak to rock-types such as Rhyperior, Rampardos, Terrakion, and Tyranitar.

Dialga, the Sinnoh "God of Time," is the odd one out in this hour set. With a Boss CP threshold as high as 53394, this steel and dragon-type is best countered by fighting and ground-types such as Lucario, Machamp, Groudon, and Excadrill.
