As part of its monthly events, Pokémon GO updates its list of raid bosses (or raids). These activities, which are available through raid passes and can be level 1, 3, 5, or Mega, allow us to face powerful Pokémon with other players in order to weaken them and later obtain them for our team or Pokédex.

Here’s our Pokémon GO guide and tips and tricks. We compiled a list of all the raid bosses that are available in Pokémon Go during the month of March 2021, organized by category.

How to participate in a raid?

A “raid pass” or a “premium raid pass” is required to participate in a raid. A day pass can be obtained by turning the photo disc in the gym or by purchasing a premium pass in the shop, which allows you to use the facility multiple times throughout the day. At any given time, you can only have one pass.


NOTE: Asterisks next to Pokémon names indicate that they are also available in their shiny or variocolor.
