Pokemon Go developers have added a new item in the form of Remote Raid Passes. The new Remote Raid Passes will change the way players experience raids in Pokemon Go. In this guide, we will talk about how you can get Remote Raid Passes in Pokemon Go and how to use them.
Pokemon Go Remote Raid Passes
Remote Raid Passes are probably the biggest change to the game. They allow players to join raids without being inside a gym radius. To get Remote Raid Passes you first need to add some new items to your item bag. There are two ways you can do this. The first way is the Special Poke Coin Box which gets you three Remote Raid Passes in Go. The second way is to get Remote Raid Passes is to purchase them from the in-game Shop. One Raid Pass costs 100 Poke Coins or you can get a bundle of three passes for 250.
How to Use Remote Raid Passes
As I mentioned above, these passes will allow you to enter raids without being in the gym radius. Any nearby battles available on your screens can now be joined by using this new item in Pokemon Go.
Tap the lower right screen to see nearby Pokemon. Tab Raid at the top of the screen to find out what Raids are available for you to participate in Pokemon Go. At the time of this writing, 20 players can join a remote raid and they won’t have any difference in the power of their Pokemon. The changes made to the game are temporary, made due to the COVID 19 social distancing guidelines. Once these restrictions are lifted, the remote raids will allow fewer players to access the raid.
