The tweet from Pokémon GO’s official account reveals that the Pokémon will leave raid battles on 18th September. Until then, Cresselia will be appearing in gyms at random for 5-star raiding.

Of course, you’ll need a team to raid alongside, but Pokémon GO’s new Remote Raid Passes make battling far easier, as it can now be done from a distance. Simply grab some Remote Raid Passes from the store, and you can raid as far as your app can see, allowing many players to stay home and still get their hands on a legendary.
For those looking to battle Cresselia, make sure you take your best Bug, Dark, and Ghost-type Pokémon into the fight for best results. All three typings are super-effective against Cresselia’s Psychic typing, but Fighting moves won’t affect the battle as much.

Some of the best Pokémon to counter Cresselia include Gengar, Darkrai, Chandelure, and Deoxys (Attack Form). Bear this in mind when selecting your team and Cresselia should be yours in no time.
As Pokémon GO developer Niantic reminds players in the tweet, it’s essential to be careful when raiding in the current pandemic. With that in mind, make use of Remote Raid Passes when necessary, and remember to raid battle in a socially-distanced manner.
