Level 1-2 Raid Bosses should be relatively easy to defeat by yourself. Level 3 Bosses can be taken on if you are around Level 30 or above. But Level 4-5 Raid Bosses are nearly impossible to take on solo. You will need to gather a group to challenge these powerful Raid Bosses together.


This month, the Legendary flavor of the month are the Lake Guardians from Sinnoh. They will be available to catch starting from Thursday, May 2 all the way until Monday, May 27 at 4 p.m. ET.


In the Asia-Pacific regions, Uxie will be available to fight. Mesprit will be in Europe, Africa, India, and the Middle East, while Greenland and the Americas will get Azelf.


In anticipation for the Detective Pikachu movie, Niantic has also released all new shiny Pokemon and exclusive Detective Pikachu missions.
