Pokemon GO Raid Hour May 6 continues Niantic Labs' raiding-from-your-couch event.

Niantic Labs announced their remote-raiding event last week, much to the excitement of trainers everywhere under lockdown. With their ability to get outside and play the game temporarily on hold, Niantic stepped forward and introduced a new mechanic—Remote Raid Passes—to combat everyone's quarantine blues. This event announcement came with several powerful headliners, including Battle League powerhouse Altered Form Giratina.

Pokemon GO Raid Hour May 6 Features Altered Form Giratina

From 6 pm to 7 pm on May 6, Altered Form Giratina will take over gyms near you. This Pokemon will appear much more frequently, giving trainers the chance to encounter and catch it at a much higher rate. Who knows? Maybe a shiny will be waiting in their midst.

Altered Form Giratina is known to be nothing short of a beast in player versus player battles. It has a maximum CP of 3,379 and many have said its presence fundamentally shaped the state of the GO Battle League.

Trainers can purchase Remote Raid Passes from the in-game shop for to take part these raids all across their local area without ever having to leave the house. Each Remote Raid Pass comes at the cost of 100 PokeCoins or in a pack of three for 250 PokeCoins. These passes can be activated on the main map by tapping the raid finder and selecting your chosen raid from there.
