The Pokemon GO Team has just announced that Legendary Raids will be coming to Pokemon GO every Wednesday evening in June! After collecting feedback from players about Legendary Raid Hours over the past few months, they have decided that even more Legendary Raids will be occurring this month.
Thanks for your feedback on our experimental Legendary Raid Hours! In the month of June, greater numbers of Raid Battles featuring Legendary Pokémon will appear every Wednesday evening from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in your local time zone. https://t.co/pX0VB7aBjA pic.twitter.com/Kt9gX8WU6V

For one hour every Wednesday evening, Raid Battles with the currently featured Legendary Pokemon will be appearing in greater numbers on your in-game map. The start time will always be relative to your local time, so no need to worry about time zones for these Legendary Raids.
On June 5 and June 12, between 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm you will be able to take on Cresselia, the Lunar Pokemon. On June 19 and June 26, between 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm, you will be able to take on Kyogre, the Sea Basin Pokemon. There will be an increased number of Raids for these Legendary Pokemon during these hours.
Once again, the Raids will occur as follows;
- Cresselia, the Lunar Pokémon—June 5 and 12, 2019 – 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm local time
- Kyogre, the Sea Basin Pokémon—June 19 and 26, 2019 – 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm local time
The new times will hopefully mean more people can take part in the Raids, and enjoy this fun Pokemon Go content.
