Niantic has now incorporated an interesting new feature in Pokémon GO in the wake of the Corona crisis. You can now buy a package with a total of three remote raid passes. They allow you to participate in raids from home. In addition, certain Pokémon are currently appearing in level 5 raids.
During the current corona pandemic, many people are unable or only partially able to leave their own four walls due to certain measures. For this reason, Niantic has come up with an interesting innovation for the Pokémon GO mobile game that is available now – the Fern Raid Passes.

With these special passes, you can take part in raids from home. This way you are not forced to leave your house or apartment. However, there are some restrictions that you should be aware of. So you can only participate in those raids that are listed in the in-game list as "nearby". Raids that are further away are excluded from this function. It is also planned that your Pokémon will cause a little less damage in the future when using such a remote variant. However, this is not the case in the introductory phase. You can currently buy three copies of these passports in the in-game shop for a Poké coin.
In addition, certain Pokémon will appear in the level 5 raids over the next few days and weeks. Here is the overview:
- Darkrai will appear in level 5 raid battles from Tuesday, April 28, 2020 at 10 p.m. to Tuesday, May 5, 2020 at 10 p.m.
- Giratina's transformation will appear in level 5 raid battles from Tuesday, May 5, 2020 at 10 p.m. to Tuesday, May 12, 2020 at 10 p.m.
- Viridium will appear in Tier 5 raid battles from Tuesday, May 12, 2020 at 10 p.m. to Tuesday, May 19, 2020 at 10 p.m.
