The Raid rotation in Pokemon GO changes at 10 AM local time. These Pokemon will rotate in and out of Raids at this time on the specified dates.

Every one of the standard Raid bosses this month can be shiny, which is excellent news for shiny hunters. However, the shiny version of Shadow Moltres has not yet come to Pokemon GO.

Also, if you are after any of the 5-Star Raid bosses, the best time to catch them is during the October 2023 Pokemon GO Raid Hours. This is because the number of Tier 5 Raids is greatly increased during these events.

Each of the 5-Star Raid bosses will be the featured Pokemon in at least one Raid Hour event this month!
