Pokemon Go Raids: Check Out These Changes to Raid Tiers and Rewards

Thursday, August 27th, 2020 12:56 pm

Two Raid Tiers have been removed.

Trainers, with the introduction of Mega Evolution and Mega Raids in Pokemon Go, some major changes have also been made to the game’s standard Raid system.

For one, the two-star and four-star Raid Tiers have been removed entirely. Going forward, you’ll only be able to participate in one-star, three-star, and five-star Raids, as well as the new Mega Raids.

According to the Niantic Support Twitter account, Pokemon that were previously featured in two-star and four-star Raids have been moved down one Tier. That means Pokemon from four-star Raids will now appear in three-star Raids, and Pokemon from two-star Raids will now be available to challenge in one-star Raids.

At the same time, the rewards you’ll receive for completing one-star and three-star Raids have been improved. When you complete a one-star Raid, you’ll now receive the rewards you would have previously received for completing a two-star Raid. Likewise, when you complete a three-star Raid, you’ll receive the rewards that were previously available from four-star Raids.

Even though the rewards for these levels have been improved, the difficulty level for one-star and three-star Raids hasn’t been increased.

In addition to these Tier changes, the team-contribution bonus has been removed from all Raids, and has been replaced by a speed bonus. With this change, the faster players complete a Raid, the more rewards they’ll receive.

Specifically, in one-star, three-star, and five-star Raids, the faster players complete a Raid, the more Premier Balls they’ll receive. In Mega Raids, the faster players complete a Raid, the more Mega Energy they’ll receive.
