We've written a full list of Raid Hours for Pokemon GO this September 2022, including a brief explanation of all appropriate counters.

What is Pokémon GO Raid Hour?

Raid Hours are similar to Spotlight Hours: a weekly feature event that showcases a single Pokémon taking over the wild around trainers. Raid Hours follow the same format — once a week on the same day at the same time featuring a single Pokémon. However, instead of simply increasing the spawning rate of the Pokemon for an hour, that featured Pokémon becomes the primary Raid Boss until the event's end.

Raid Hours typically take place on Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. local time.

Pokemon GO Raid Hours September 2022

There are four Raid Hours in September 2022 with each full of unique surprises. Deoxys in all its many forms will kick off the month, and Yveltal will close it out.

  • Sept. 7 – Deoxys (Normal, Speed, Defense, and Attack Form)
  • Sept. 14 – Pokemon to be announced
  • Sept. 21 – Pokemon to be announced
  • Sept. 28 – Yveltal

Doexys is known as the DNA Pokémon. It's a powerful, Mythical Psychic-type Pokémon that can appear in four different formes: Attack, Defense, Speed and Normal. These formes may sport different moves, but their weaknesses and counters remain the same. It's weak to Bug, Ghost and Dark attacks, and resistant to Fighting and Psychic attacks. Solid counter options include Pheromosa, Chandelure, Genger and Dragapult.

Yveltal is known as the Destruction Pokémon. It's a combination Dark and Flying-type, so it is vulnerable to Rock, Electric, Ice and Fairy attacks. It's resistant to Ghost, Grass and Dark attacks, and extra resistant to Ground and Psychic attacks. Good counters include Darmanitan (Galarian Zen), Xurkitree, Thundurus, Zacian (Crowned Sword) and Zekrom.
