Pokemon Go Current Raids: Pokemon Go New Raid Bosses For Ultra Bonus Event

Pokemon Go current raids or Pokemon Go new raid bosses change constantly, making a list you read yesterday potentially outdated by the next. Pokemon Go raids typically change as new in-game events begin, and the currently running Pokemon Go Ultra Bonus event is no exception.

The Pokemon Go Ultra Bonus event means any and all random Pokemon spawns will be Gen 1 Pokemon from now until September 30 at the earliest, but that doesn’t necessarily carry on over into the Pokemon Go current raids rotation. Pokemon Go new raid bosses are now available, but it isn’t the full Kanto swap-out you might have expected.

Pokemon Go Current Raids: Pokemon Go New Raid Bosses For Ultra Bonus Event

The list of Pokemon Go new raid bosses and Pokemon Go current raids are as follows. * indicates potential shiny Pokemon:

1-Star Pokemon Go Current Raids

These can be easily tackled with a single trainer of just about any level and are a great way to earn EXP. The inclusion of Dratini should make obtaining the powerful Dragonite much easier than before.

  • Wailmer*
  • Meditite*
  • Makuhita*
  • Dratini*
  • Kabuto*
  • Omanyte*
  • Magikarp*
  • Bulbasaur*
  • Squirtle*

2-Star Pokemon Go Current Raids

These raids are a little tougher to handle, but should be easy pickings for a level 20+ trainer with some decently powerful counters.

  • Mawile*
  • Kirlia
  • Magmar*
  • Electrabuzz
  • Lickitung

3-Star Pokemon Go Current Raids

A test of strength and strategy for those between level 25-35 and more or less impossible for lower level trainers to take on single-handedly. You’ll need perfect and powerful counters to reliably solo these creatures. Machamp and Alakazam are meta picks and should be caught whenever possible.

  • Alolan Raichu
  • Aerodactyl*
  • Jolteon*
  • Scyther
  • Tangela
  • Hitmonlee
  • Hitmonchan
  • Onix
  • Machamp
  • Alakazam

4-Star Pokemon Go Current Raids

Essentially challenge mode for small groups of high leveled players, expect to need at least 3-4 Level 25+ players to take on these challenging foes. Aim to catch Golem and Tyranitar if you get the chance.

  • Alolan Marowak
  • Absol*
  • Tyranitar*
  • Snorlax
  • Lapras
  • Rhydon
  • Golem*

5-Star Pokemon Go Current Raids

Demanding a sizeable group of level 25+ trainers to defeat, these are difficult battles that reward nothing but legendary Pokemon that will boost the viability of just about any team. Low level players will notice a sharp increase in their team composition if they manage to join in and catch a Pokemon from this tier.

  • Regirock
  • Moltres* (until Sep. 20, 2018)
  • Zapdos* (until Sep. 20, 2018)
  • Articuno* (until Sep. 20, 2018)
  • Mewtwo (Sep. 20 – Oct. 23)
