Niantic are expanding the roster of Legendary Pokemon in Five-Star raids. The upcoming three Dragon Pokemon, Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem, are all from the Unova region in Pokemon Black Version and Pokemon White Version. Of course, they will roll out one by one, so be sure to stock up on all the stuff you’re going to need in time. We’re talking Remote Raid Passes, healing items, powerful Poke Balls, the works.

According to the announcement, the first one of the trio, Reshiram, is going to arrive to Pokemon Go’s five-star raids on Tuesday, May 26th, at 1:00 PM PDT. It will hang around until Tuesday, June 16, at 1:00 PM PDT. During that period, Raid Hour events featuring Reshiram are going to take place every Wednesday. During these time frames, Reshiram raids are going to happen more frequently. Here are the dates and times, so you can mark your calendars:

  • May 27, 2020, from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM local time
  • June 3, 2020, from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM local time
  • June 10, 2020, from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM local time

As for the other two Legendaries, Zekrom and Kyurem, they’ll be coming to the game at a later date; Nianitc will share further details in due time. Now, of course, COVID-19 is still a bit of an issue for everyone that wants to be out and about. That’s why you’ve got Remote Raid Passes for every trainer that’s Level 5 and above. When you use one of those, it lets you “join a Raid Battle that you can see on the Nearby screen or tap on the map.”

There are different ways to obtain Remote Passes in the game, and the easiest way is through the in-game shop. You can find them in the “Items” section of the store, and they cost 100 PokeCoins a pop. However, if you have more than three Passes in your Inventory already, you won’t be able to purchase more.
