Elite Raids: Regidrago returns in global makeup event
We apologize for the inconvenience our dedicated Trainers experienced during the initial appearance of Regidrago in March. Due to technical issues that occurred during this event, we’re holding a special global event on Saturday, May 13, 2023. We’re also releasing a special bundle for Trainers in the GMT +13 time zone who were most impacted by these issues.
During this event, all Trainers will be able to access the Timed Research originally planned for the Regidrago and Regieleki Elite Raid Days—even those who already completed it! All other gameplay aspects will be the same as the previous event.
Thank you for your understanding, and we appreciate your continued passion for Pokémon GO!

What are Elite Raids?
- Elite Raids are a challenging variety of Raid Battle that appear from special Raid Eggs. Once the Raid Egg hatches, a Raid Boss will appear for 30 minutes—but take note that Elite Raid Bosses can only be battled in-person. Gather your friends and prepare for an epic confrontation!
- Defeat Regidrago in an Elite Raid, and you’ll earn an opportunity to catch it.
- Remember, Trainers will not be able to participate in Elite Raids using Remote Raid Passes.
