Pokémon GO’s Remote Raid Passes Will Work in a Different Way Than the Fans are Used To

Niantic, the company behind the mobile game Pokémon Go, is changing how Remote Raids work due to the domination of the game’s experience by Raids played far away from Gyms. Gladly, we have information about the changes thanks to Polygon. Niantic is increasing the price of Remote Raid Passes, with a single pass now costing 195 PokéCoins (up from 100) and a three-pack pass priced at 525 PokéCoins (up from 300).

Players will be limited to a maximum of five Remote Raids per day, though this may change during special events. In-person raids are being incentivized by Niantic, with additional XL Candy rewards for players participating in five-star Raids. Players may still be able to earn a Remote Raid Pass from Research Breakthroughs. These changes are aimed at preventing Remote Raids from becoming a shortcut to play and restoring the intended balance of the game.

In the blog post related to the new changes, the Pokemon GO team wrote:

We plan to keep Remote Raid Passes as part of Pokémon GO. However, we believe this change is necessary for the long-term health of the game, and we do not make it lightly. We feel this is a necessary step toward our goal of preserving and improving the unique experience of playing Pokémon GO—a game we hope you continue to enjoy long into the future.

Pokemon GO is a mobile game that can be played on devices running either iOS or Android operating systems. This means that players can download and play the game on their smartphones and tablets, making it a highly accessible game.

The game was designed to be played on mobile devices, taking advantage of their built-in GPS and camera functions to create an immersive augmented reality experience. Players can explore the real world around them to find and catch different Pokemon, battle other trainers, and team up with other players to take on challenging raids.
