Pokemon GO's many features can be difficult to keep track of — especially Raids. This mechanic features a rotating carousel of Pokemon that changes not only month to month, but also potentially by week and by the hour. With normal events, weekly spotlights, and more affecting the Raid pool, it's no wonder trainers may find themselves intimidated when embarking for the first time.

Fortunately, we're here to take the guess work out so you can focus on bringing your best team to the showdown. Below, you'll find our one-stop-shop for everything Raids in Pokemon GO this month, June 2022.

All Pokemon GO Raid Hours in June 2022

For the unaware, Raid Hours are the mirror image of Spotlight Hours — but for Raids. From 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., local time, every Wednesday, a single featured Pokemon will take over five-star Raids and Raids will appear more frequently across the region.

In June, there are five Raid Hour features:

  • June 1: Kyogre
  • June 8: Groudon
  • June 15: Groudon
  • June 22: Mewtwo (Shadow Ball)
  • June 29: Mewtwo (Psystrike)

More information about Raid Hours in June 2022, including explanations of each boss and suggestions on the best Raid team, can be found in our Raid Hour guide.
