The Season of Hidden Gems welcomed returning Pokémon to new five-star and Mega Raids, with the season also including Shadow Raids with Shadow Articuno appearing in June 2023. Unfortunately, recently Trainers have incurred a technical issue regarding Remote Raid Passes and, as such, cannot participate in five-star Raids featuring Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf.

This June, these legendary Pokémon from the Sinnoh region will appear in a special Global Raid event. So, we’ve opened up our PokéDex as we’ve detailed everything about the Global Raid event featuring Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf and updates on the Remote Raid Pass for Pokémon GO.

Pokémon GO Uxie, Mesprit & Azelf Global Raid: Event Schedule

Niantic announced via the official Pokémon GO blog and social media channels that a limited-time Global Raid event featuring the legendary Psychic-type Pokémon, Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf. This special Global Raid event will take place on 11th June 2023 between 11 am to 5 pm local time for Trainers globally.

This Global Raid event was made possible due to multiple reports of Trainers unsuccessfully being able to participate in their five-star Raids at the start of the Season of Hidden Gems on 1st June 2023. These reports detailed that many experienced technical difficulties implementing the Remote Raid Pass to access these five-star Raids.

Additionally, Niantic announced that the weekend of 10th to 11th June 2023, between 12 am and 11:59 pm local time, all Trainers could be a part of Remote Raids with the max cap at 15 Remote Raids daily. As such, these featured Pokémon will be appearing to Trainers in the following regions and territories, as previously confirmed by the developer:

  • Uxie: 11th June 2023 between 11 am to 5 pm local time (Asia-Pacific only)
  • Mesprit: 11th June 2023 between 11 am to 5 pm local time (Africa, Europe, India & Middle East only)
  • Azelf: 11th June 2023 between 11 am to 5 pm local time (The Americas and Greenland only)

Lastly, the developer issued a statement apologizing to the Pokémon GO community for the technical issues experienced while using Remote Raid Passes for the ongoing Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf Raids. This issue was reportedly confirmed to have occurred between 1st and 5th June 2023 between 10 am and 8 pm PST, and we will be issuing compensation shortly.
