The Pokemon GO Fest: Global event has a new selection of Raid bosses to battle – and players will certainly want to catch ’em all!

Every Raid boss during GO Fest Global is a rare or exciting Pokemon and includes costumed variants for the iconic Pikachu and Snorlax, Primal Pokemon, and the brand-new additions Carbink and Mega Rayquaza!

The following Pokemon will be Raid bosses during the 2023 Pokemon GO Fest Global:

  • Quartz Crown Pikachu
  • Pyrite Crown Pikachu
  • Malachite Crown Pikachu
  • Aquamarine Crown Pikachu
  • Goomy
  • Carbink
  • Cowboy Hat Snorlax
  • Primal Kyogre
  • Primal Groudon
  • Mega Rayquaza

While most of these bosses are in Raids for the whole of the event, Primal Groudon, Primal Kyogre, and Mega Rayquaza are only available at certain times.
