Raids are an essential part of the Pokemon Go experience, and each month there is a new set of Pokemon Go Raid Schedule. The raids consist of common 1-Stars to rare 5-Star Legendaries to battle and potentially catch.
February is shaping up to be an exciting month for Pokemon Go players. Go Tour: Hoenn is almost here, and another Community Day was starring Noibat. Lastly, there is a new set of Spotlight Hour stars to enjoy.
As for Raids, Trainers will be able to catch Registeel, Regirock, and Rayquaza when they return to 5-Star Raids throughout the month. There will also be a brand new Mega Pokemon to battle and Tapu Lele will make its Shiny debut.
As you can see, the Pokemon Go Raid Schedule February is jam-packed with excitement for Pokemon Go fans all over. As we settle deep into February, only a few weeks separate us from the Pokemon Go Raid Schedule for March 2023.
But first, let us talk about what a raid is in Pokemon Go.
Pokemon Go Raids
Raid Battles occur when a Boss Pokemon takes over a Gym. You can find them by walking around local Gyms and keeping an eye out for eggs that are about to hatch, or Boss Pokemon that are part of a currently ongoing Raid.
These Pokemon are very powerful, so I recommend that you team up with a few other trainers to secure a victory. There are four tiers: 1-Star, 3-Star, 5-Star, and Mega Raids. The higher the tier, the harder the battle.
Besides, earning special items, you will also get a chance to catch the Pokemon you beat. In the case of 5-Star Raids, these will be Legendaries you cannot get anywhere else.
Now that you know all about raids, let us dive deep into the Pokemon Go Raid Schedule this February 2023.

With the end of the Valentine’s Day event, the Raid Boss lineup has changed once again. There are lots of great Pokemon available to battle and catch including Ninetales, Golurk, and Galarian Stunfisk.
The Mega Raids and 5-Star Raids will follow the schedule above, but One-Star and Three-Star Raids often change at random, especially during special events. Make sure to check back regularly for the latest Raid opportunities.
Each week, Niantic hosts a special Raid Hour to give players a better chance at catching the current 5-Star Raid Pokemon. All of the gyms that have Raids will be Five-Star raids, so that will be Regirock right now.
Raid Hours take place every Wednesday from 6 PM to 7 PM, and you won’t have to worry about time zones as it will always be your local time. This is the perfect chance to get out there and catch yourself a Legendary.
