This Raid Day event will take place on Saturday, April 13, 2024, from 2pm local time to 5pm local time, only giving you a brief window of time to participate. Make the most of Mega Heracross's debut event using the guide we have put together below, including all details surrounding this event.

Mega Heracross will be the featured Pokemon for this Raid Day, the latest Mega Evolution added to Pokemon Go. Throughout the three hours of this Raid Day, you can expect to find Mega Heracross Raids taking place at the vast majority of Raid locations, giving you plenty of opportunities to attempt this brand-new Mega Raid.

Additionally, all Heracross encountered as a Raid completion reward will have substantially increased odds of being Shiny during this Raid Day. With the increased number of Raids that you will be able to participate in during this event, this gives you an excellent opportunity to acquire a Shiny Heracross, an extremely rare Pokemon.

Successfully completing Mega Heracross Raids will reward you with Heracross Mega Energy, the resource needed to Mega Evolve one of your Heracross.

With this being Mega Heracross's debut, this is a great opportunity to obtain your first Mega Heracross.

Raid Day Bonuses

There will be three different bonuses that all players will benefit from during this Raid Day, free of charge. Each of these three bonuses help to increase the number of Raids that you'll be able to participate in and improves the benefits that come with completing each Raid.

The first two bonuses have to do with Raid Passes specifically, allowing you to gain and use more of them than usual. These two bonuses include:

  • Increase in the number of free Raid Passes from visiting Pokemon Gyms from one to five.
  • Increase in the number of Remote Raid Passes you can use to 20 (from Friday, April 12, at 5pm PDT to Saturday, April 13, at 8pm PDT).

Additionally, once two or more players have completed the same in-person Raid successfully, there will be an increase in the Pokemon that spawn around that Gym for 15 minutes. Make sure to complete different in-person Raids during this event with another Trainer to benefit from this bonus.

Raid Day Event Ticket

Mega Heracross Raid Strategies

It's crucial to plan out the team of Pokemon you'll be using for this Mega Raid, making all the necessary preparations to maximize your effectiveness.

For this specific Raid battle, it's recommended that you attempt it with the help of at least one to two other Trainers. That being said, group up with as many other players as possible for these Raid battles, guaranteeing that you obtain all possible rewards for each attempted Raid.

Additionally, it's important to factor in Mega Heracross's typing when deciding which Pokemon to battle with during this Raid battle. Being a Bug and Fighting dual-type Pokemon, Mega Heracross has a double-weakness to Flying-type attacks.Put together a team of powerful Flying-type Pokemon with Flying-type attacks to maximize the damage that you deal during these battles.

On the flip side of this, Mega Heracross's specific dual-typing also provides it with a handful of resistances on the battlefield. This includes resistances to Bug, Fighting, Dark, Ground, and Grass-type attacks, so it's best to avoid choosing Pokemon that use attacks of these five types.
