Niantic’s Pokemon GO is the mobile game of the Pokemon franchise where you can go out to collect Pokemon in your surroundings. It is an Augmented Reality (AR) game that uses the real-life GPS locations of the players to locate, capture, train, and battle the virtual Pokemon. The video game is the result of a collaboration between Niantic, Nintendo, and The Pokemon Company. Players can immerse themselves into the role of being a Trainer of Pokemon and catch all the Pokemon that they need. This guide will take you through red raid eggs and how they work in Pokemon GO.
What are the Red Raid Eggs in Pokémon Go
Pokemon Go brings new content for its players all the time, and this time it is in the form of some new type of eggs. This is a raid egg which is red in color, and you will be able to find them on top of Gyms in the game. They’ll take a long time to hatch, but they’re worth it.
Red Raid Eggs will give you powerful Pokemon if you’re willing to wait for them to hatch. You will need the help of your friends if you want to being them down.
These eggs are also known as Elite Raids in Pokémon Go, which are famously the most difficult challenges in the game. If you want to call in your friends for help, they will need to be close to you physically. You will not be able to use Remote Raid Passes for these raids, nor will you be able to recruit someone who is not close to the Gym you have found the Red Raid Egg at.
You will need to approach the egg in order to begin the battle. Beware and be prepared as some of these Pokemon battles are even more complex than 5-Star raids. They have almost 20K Health, and you will need to defeat them before you run out of tiem.
