Pokemon Go December 2022 Raids: As we approach the end of 2022, we’re looking back at some of the biggest moments in gaming this year. And one of the most popular games of the year was definitely Pokemon Go. With millions of players all over the world, there’s no doubt that Pokemon Go had a huge impact on the gaming industry. And as we look ahead to 2022, we’re wondering what’s in store for Pokemon Go fans. One thing we do know is that there will be more raids in December 2022. So if you’re looking to catch ’em all, make sure you’re prepared!
What is a Raid in Pokémon GO?
A Raid in Pokémon GO is a cooperative game mode in which players work together to defeat a powerful Pokémon. Raids can be undertaken by up to 20 players, and they occur at specific locations called Gyms. Each Gym has a timer that counts down to when the Raid will start; when the timer reaches zero, the Raid Boss will appear.
To participate in a Raid, players must have a Poké Ball and enough Premier Balls (which are obtained by defeating the Raid Boss) to catch the boss Pokémon. Players will have a limited amount of time to defeat the boss, after which it will flee and cannot be caught. If successful, players will receive rewards such as Rare Candies and TMs.
How do you participate in a Raid?
To participate in a Raid, you must be at least Level 5 and have a Pokémon of your own. When a Gym has a Raid Battle taking place, an egg will appear on top of the Gym. The amount of time that you have to defeat the Raid Boss before it flees is shown below the egg. If you don’t have a Pokémon that can take down the Raid Boss, you can try to find other Trainers who are also looking to take on the challenge.
Once the egg hatches, the timer starts ticking down and the Raid Boss appears! You and up to 20 other Trainers can battle the Raid Boss by tapping on the “Battle” button. If you’re not able to defeat the Raid Boss within the time limit, don’t worry—you can always try again.
What are the different types of Raids?
As of December 2022, there are four different types of raids in Pokémon GO:
Tier 1 raids are the easiest to complete and usually feature common Pokémon such as Pidgey or Rattata. These raids can be completed by a single player, but it is recommended to have at least two players for higher success rates.
Tier 2 raids are more difficult than Tier 1 raids and usually feature uncommon Pokémon such as Electabuzz or Hitmonlee. These raids require at least two players to complete successfully.
Tier 3 raids are very difficult and usually feature rare Pokémon such as Blastoise or Vaporeon. These raids require a team of at least three players to have a chance at success.
Tier 4 raids are the hardest difficulty and usually feature legendary Pokémon such as Mewtwo or Lugia. These raids require a team of at least six players to have any hope of defeating the Pokémon.
What are the best Pokémon to use in each type of Raid?

How do you get rewards from Raids?
Completing a Raid Battle in Pokémon GO gives you the chance to catch the powerful Boss Pokémon that takes over the Gym. But that’s not all—you also get some nice rewards for your efforts!
The amount of Premier Balls you receive is based on your performance in the Raid Battle, with better performances netting more balls. You’ll also get some valuable items, like Golden Razz Berries and Rare Candies. And if you’re lucky, you might even find a technical machine (TM) that can teach your Pokémon a new move!
As we approach the end of 2022, it’s time to start thinking about which Pokemon will be appearing in raids next year. While we don’t know exactly what the raid schedule will look like, we can predict which Pokemon will be making an appearance based on previous patterns.
