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

What is Pokemon GO Raid Hour?

Raid Hours are similar to Spotlight Hours, a weekly feature event that showcases a singular Pokemon 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 Pokemon. However, instead of simply increasing the spawning rate of the Pokemon for an hour, that featured Pokemon 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 June 2022

There are five Raid Hours in June 2022. Two of these feature the same Pokemon consecutively, which we've listed according to the dates below:

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

Kyogre is a pure water-type, meaning its weaknesses are grass and electric-types. Appropriate counter choices include Therian Thundurus, Zekrom, Attack Forme Deoxys, Electivire, Roserade, and Raikou. Trainers may want to steer clear of steel, fire, ice, and other water-types when facing this Pokemon.

Groudon is a pure ground-type with weaknesses to grass, water, and ice-types. Therefore, the best counter choices for this Pokemon would be Galarian Zen and Standard Darmanitan, Kyogre, and Roserade. Trainers should stay away from electric-types in particular for this fight. Ground-types and poison-types should be avoided, as well.

Mewtwo is a pure psychic-type with vulnerabilities to bug, dark, and ghost-types. The best counter choices here are Chandelure, Gengar, Darkrai, Volcarona, Zoroark, Weavile, Origin Forme Giratina, and Absol. Trainers shouldn't plan on bringing fighting or other psychic-types when facing Mewtwo.
