Pokemon Go brings back Hoopa Unbound for a new raid type.

Pokemon Go introduced a new, more challenging type of raid battle called Elite Raids.

Unlike other types of raids, Elite Raid eggs will spawn in gyms 24 hours before the raid starts.

Elite raids are also much more challenging than other types of raids.

 The first Elite Raid boss will be Hoopa Unbound, which will begin appearing in gyms on October 16th

If your party manages to successfully defeat a powerful Mythical Pokémon, everyone who participated in the battle will get a chance to catch it.

Meanwhile, the Pokemon Go Festival of Lights celebration is going on until October 17th. As part of the event, you have the first chance to get Morelull and his evolved form, Shiinotic, into play.

October Pokemon Go Community Day is October 15th. You can see everything else happening in the game this month in our October events roundup.
