With the introduction of Mega Raids, the following updates have been made to raids.
Changes to raid tiers
Raid tiers have been updated to only include only one-star raids, three-star raids, five-star raids, and Mega Raids. One-star raids and three-star raids now include a greater variety of Pokémon. The difficulty for one-star and three-star raids will remain the same as before, but the rewards have been increased to what two-star and four-star raids awarded, respectively.
Changes to raid bonuses
In addition to the raid-tier changes, a speed bonus is replacing the team-contribution bonus for all raids moving forward. The faster you defeat the Raid Boss, the more rewards everyone participating in the raid will receive! The Gym defender bonus is staying, so teams will still have something to compete for before the raid begins.
- In one-star, three-star, and five-star raids, the speed bonus will reward you additional Premier Balls.
- In Mega Raids, the speed bonus will reward you additional Mega Energy.
