Pokémon GO Raid Hours take place from 6 pm to 7 pm local time every Wednesday throughout the month. During this time, more Tier 5 Raids will spawn with a particular Pokémon.
This month, Niantic also has something special in store for trainers during Pokémon GO Raid Hours: Mega Raids! These Mega Raids during Raid Hours come following the major updates to Mega Evolution and Mega Raids just a few weeks ago.

  • 25th May: Tapu Lele
  • 25th May: Tapu Bulu

25th May will feature Tapu Fini, Tapu Koko, Tapu Lele, and Tapu Bulu in Raids all at the same time, presenting incredible opportunities to catch these rare Pokémon.

Unfortunately, none of the Tapu variations are available in Raids in their Shiny varieties. Mega Latias and Mega Latios, though, are available as Shinies for lucky trainers on 4th May. Now you know which Pokémon will be featured in Pokémon GO's May 2022 Raid Hours, so you can prepare and make the most of them this month.
