Every Shadow Raid Boss in the October 2023 Team GO Rocket Takeover
The following Pokemon will be available to battle in Shadow Raids during the Team GO Rocket Takeover, which is running from 10 AM on October 26 until 8 PM on October 31, 2023:
|Pokemon||Raid Tier||Can it Be Shiny?|
(October 28 and 29 only)
Unfortunately, only Shadow Grimer and Shadow Lugia have the chance of being shiny. However, this is the first time in Pokemon GO history that shiny Shadow Lugia will be available to catch!
Just make sure you battle Shadow Lugia in the small window that it will be a Raid boss. Shadow Lugia is in Raids from 10 AM local time on October 28 until 8 PM local time on October 29, giving players just two days to catch one!
In addition to the Shadow Raid bosses, a selection of spooky Pokemon will also be available to battle in Pokemon GO Raids during this period. Find out all of the Halloween Raid bosses in Pokemon GO here!
