Every week, Pokemon GO holds a Raid Hour event which greatly increases the number of Tier 5 Raids taking place and there will be four of these events happening in April 2023.
Every Raid Hour in April 2023 takes place on a Wednesday from 6 PM to 7 PM local time. These are the dates and featured Legendary Pokemon in 5-Star Raids during the Raid Hours this month:
- April 5 – Lugia
- April 12 – Landorus (Incarnate Forme)
- April 19 – Tapu Bulu
- April 26 – Tapu Bulu
What makes the April 2023 Pokemon GO Raid Hours even more exciting is that the shiny versions of all of the featured Legendary Pokemon will be available. This includes the shiny Tapu Bulu, which will be making its Pokemon GO debut this month!
The exact chance of catching shiny Legendary Pokemon in Pokemon GO is around 5%. This means that, on average, one out of every 20 shiny Legendary Pokemon you encounter will be shiny!
Also, don’t worry if you’re busy during any of these Raid Hours- these Legendaries will be available to catch for at least one week each. Make sure to check out the April 2023 Pokemon GO Mega and Legendary Raid schedule for more information!
In addition to these Legendary Pokemon, a brand-new Legendary is making its Pokemon GO debut in April. Find out the date and times for Regieleki Elite Raids so you don’t miss out on catching one!
