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 45 minutes—but take note that Elite Raid Bosses can only be battled in-person. Gather your friends and prepare for an epic confrontation! Defeat Mega Rayquaza 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.

Free Timed Research will be available to Trainers during the event as well. Complete the research tasks to earn a Meteorite.

Unlike other Mega-Evolving Pokémon, Rayquaza can’t Mega Evolve with Mega Energy alone. Trainers hoping to Mega Evolve their Rayquaza will need to teach it the Charged Attack Dragon Ascent first. Dragon Ascent can only be learned by using Meteorites.

Prepare for the Elite Raids with Mega Rayquaza by stocking up on the essentials from the Pokémon GO Web Store. The Anniversary Box will be available during the event, which features three Remote Raid Passes, one Incubator, and three Premium Battle Passes for US$4.99 (or the equivalent pricing tier in your local currency). Make sure to check out this offer and other deals available on the web store.

Now even more Trainers can enjoy the web store. Trainers with Pokémon Trainer Club (PTC) accounts will now be able to log in to the Pokémon GO Web Store with the same credentials used to log in to Pokémon GO.
