Finally, June 2024 sees the return of Mega Rayquaza to Pokémon GO. While it was initially believed this would be a standard Raid Day, we are instead getting this Pokémon back in Elite Raids. Stay tuned for more details!

Pokémon GO June 2024 Raids

Five Star Raids

June 1-10
Landorus (Incarnate Forme)
June 10-19
June 19-28
June 28-July 8

June 2024 will see some classic Pokémon make their return to GO. All four of these Pokémon are Flying-types, keeping with the 'Shared Skies' theme. Yveltal probably the most powerful Pokémon here. Landorus is better in the other forme, but it shares candy so this is still a good Raid to grind.

Mega Raids

Mega Gyrados
June 1-10
Mega Alakazam
June 10-19
Mega Charizard Y
June 19-28
Mega Tyranitar
June 28-July 8

Nothing mind-blowing for June 2024 Mega Raids in Pokémon GO sadly. We've seen all of these Mega Pokémon in recent raids. If you didn't get chance to take them on, then this is a second chance!

Shadow Raids

Pokémon GO Shadow Raids in June 2024 will see Shadow Raikou available, with the Shiny version released. This is a very strong Shadow Pokémon and if you can get a group together, another good use of your time in Pokémon GO this month.

Other highlights

As always, there will be a range of Pokémon GO Spotlight Hours in June 2024. June 11th's Spotlight Hour will have 2x Transfer Candy, a great chance to clear out your extra Pokémon. Additionally, June 25 will have 2x Catch Stardust with the featured Pokémon as Morelull. Morelull has a base 500 Stardust when you catch them, so this hour will yield 1,000 per catch (1,500 with a Star Piece.)

Finally, don't forget to grab a ticket for Pokémon GO Fest if you haven't already!
