Pokémon GO: Big Raid Update - with new graphics and trainer successes

Pokémon GO

Niantic releases updates for the raids in Pokémon Go. "Since we introduced raid battles in the summer of 2017, millions of trainers around the world have taken part in raid battles to defeat and catch powerful Pokémon," said the developers. After the introduction of the remote raid passes last year, players can now look forward to additional features. Also included are the trainer successes, which are supposed to put trainers of all levels in the spotlight for participating in a raid fight. "For example, trainers are shown at the end of a raid fight who did the most damage or caused a Pokémon to Mega Evolve because they made valuable contributions to the fight," add the developers.

You can also get into the limelight of the raid battle in Pokémon Go if, among other things, you use the last attack, participate from the greatest distance or use the most charging attacks among all participants. As soon as you have bagged the first success, you will receive a medal that you can upgrade from bronze to silver to gold. "You can even download your trainer success card with your avatar, for example to share it with your friends on social media," announce the developers. With the current update, the makers are also working on the graphics and user interface. Niantic promises a "completely new look" for the stadium in which the raid battles will take place.
