Gen V fans will no doubt be thrilled to see the Legendary trio return to 5-star Raids, and they’ll have a total of five days to take on each of them in their Incarnate Formes, with the potential for them to be Shiny.

Once the Incarnate Formes have had their turns, it’ll be time to make way for the Therian Formes. These powerful ‘mon are making their long-awaited Pokemon Go debuts in 5-star Raids, and they’re sure to be popular.


Therian Forme Thundurus will appear on Tuesday, March 16, and will be replaced by Therian Forme Tornadus on Tuesday, March 30. Therian Forme Landorus is then expected to debut in April. Below, we’ll go over the full Raid schedule.
