Pokemon GO Raid Battles allow other trainers to join together and battle against extremely fierce Pokemon known as a Raid Boss at Gym Locations, for chance to receive Raid Rewards.
What Are Raid Battles?
Before the Raid Battle will start, all pokemon that are assigned in the gym will be returned to their trainer. Afterwards, a large Egg will appear at the tip top of the Gym with a Countdown Timer. Upon it reaching zero, the Pokemon GO Raid Boss will appear.
