We’re a month into Pokémon Go’s Season 10: Rising Heroes and it’s already been an eventful one. From seeing Pokémon like Ho-Oh in raids to the Festival of Colours and Team Go Rocket Takeover. Trainers have had quite the ride. Just like March, April 2023 also promises to be full of content.

April Raids

Each week a Pokémon will be featured in both five-star and mega raids. Currently, Lugia is part of the five-star raids and will remain there until April 11th. It will be followed by Incarnate Forme Landorus and Tapu Bulu.

Mega raids on the other hand are hosting Mega Alakazam right now, which will be fightable until April 4th. Alakazam’s weekly successors are mega variants of Loppuny, Blastoise, and Slowbro.
