Following technical issues with Pokémon GO's Remote Raids at the beginning of this month, Niantic has announced that they will be refunding all Remote paid passes used by Trainers for Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf raids between June 1st, at 10:00am local time, and June 5th, at 8:00pm US Pacific Time, as well as giving impacted Trainers an additional Remote Raid Pass. As an apology gift to all Trainers, a special Global Raid Event will be held this Sunday June 11th between 11:00am and 5:00pm local time, with Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf each appearing in five-star raids in their respective regions.
Uxie will appear more frequently in raids in the Asia-Pacific region.
Mesprit will appear more frequently in raids in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and India.
Azelf will appear more frequently in raids in the Americas, and Greenland.
All three of these Mythical Pokémon can rarely be encountered in their Shiny variant as part of these raids. In conjunction with this bonus raid event, the Remote Raid limit will also be increased to 15 for all Trainers between June 10th at 12:00am and June 11th at 11:59pm local time.
