The Pokemon GO Twinkling Fantasy event has an especially exciting lineup of Raid bosses, including a brand-new Mega Pokemon!

If you want to catch ’em all, you’ll need to win some Raid battles. After all, Tier 1 and 3 Raid bosses are often Pokemon you won’t see very often in the wild. Plus, winning Raids is basically the only way to catch Legendaries!

Luckily, the offering of Pokemon from January 10 – 16, 2023, as part of the Twinkling Fantasy event is pretty exciting!

Before you use up a Raid Pass to battle any of these Pokemon, check the current wild Pokemon spawns. You won’t want to waste a Raid Pass on a Pokemon you can encounter in the wild!


Mawile, Druddigon, and Dedenne are the three different Pokemon that are available to battle in Raids during the Twinkling Fantasy event.

There is also a small chance to encounter the shiny version of all of these Pokemon after winning a Raid!
