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.

With all of the Pokemon apart from the two Ultra Beasts, Kartana and Celesteela, having shiny versions in the game, it is a great month for Raiding.

The odds of encountering shiny Legendaries from Raids are 1 in 20, while the odds of encountering a shiny Pokemon after winning a Mega Raid are 1 in 64.

Additionally, September 2023 is also the first time that Kartana and Celesteela will be appearing in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. This is excellent news for players who missed out on catching them when they were exclusive to half of the world.
