A new arrival to raids will test your strength in 2019! The Water- and Dragon-type Spatial Pokémon, Palkia, will join Raid Battles across the world from January 29 at 1:00 p.m. PST to February 28 at 1:00 p.m. PST!

With the ability to warp the very fabric of space and enough power to take on Giratina, Palkia is a Pokémon that shouldn’t be underestimated. Be sure to assemble a team that includes Dragon- and Fairy-type Pokémon to take down this Legendary Pokémon before its special attacks overwhelm your team!

Don’t miss this chance to catch this Legendary Pokémon before it returns to its own spatial dimension! Stay safe, and happy exploring!
