If I already have 4 passes, will I be able to keep stacking the free ones?
yes, but you need to be under 3 to claim the free bundle of remotes.
use 2, claim bundle, then stack the 8 ;)
Awesome. Thank you.
i missed the bundle from the shop..F
What bundle? Didn’t know there was one. Ultra box looks like a good raid bundle.
Apparently there’s a free box of 3 RRPs available during GoFest hours today, but you need to have less than 2 in your storage to see and claim it (I missed it too, FML....).
is gofest over for you right now? it hasnt started in my timezone yet
When I wrote the above post, yes it’s finished :(
So you need to raid to receive a raid pass, 8 times as a ticket holder? Definitely not bad, I thought that the quests to receive the 8 RRP was gonna be more of a hassle.
Does this expire at 6pm local?
The timed does
This is great if you live somewhere where people raid. So far, I haven’t seen a single person in a raid lobby.
Last year’s day 2 was much better, because the Rocket tasks were something you could do solo. This doesn’t work at all.
Pokeraid or pokegenie
Also remember it’s almost always going to be after to host than sit in a queue for 10 minutes.
I discovered pokegenie recently. Didnt like pokeraid but ill sit in ques all night on pokegenie. Paid for iv vision too
Pokeraid is nothing but errors today. Can’t get in a room to save my life.
Join a raiding discord group. Pay $10 and join pokemon trainer patreon raid tier. So many tools for people in your situation.
You cannot seriously suggest that the best course of action is to pay to join a third-party service because Niantic can't design its biggest event of the year (one on the game's fifth anniversary, no less) to be more accessible?
Or you can just just keep complaining on Reddit and miss out.
So, 10 free regular passes for 8 remotes?? That's pretty great
Where do you see 8 remote passes at? (1-8) at the bottom. My bad
All good homie! I just assume that step repeats eight times yup
Just finish my day 2, can confirm this is a total of 8 remote passes
Plus an additional 3 remotes available in a free box in the shop.
I didn’t get three in the free box o.o
Did you not claim it?
I opened it after they said they just got balls and up pots I think, I have event ticket too, hmm idk I’ll look again
There was a box up the top, with the free daily one that is just three remote raid passes for free
Oh it worked now thank you
When/how do you get the 10 regular ones?
Spinning a gym after you do a raid!
Oh so the regular ones are time gated by the event? Ty
That's what it seems like!
Think similarly to the legendary bird raid days or Lapras day we had. Free regular passes, each after using the previous. Except this time there are 10!
do you get 10 regular plus the 8 remote or is it one or the other?
But what if underlockdown and can’t spin gyms remotely?
Was really hoping to see hoopa.
There were no game files reported being seen for Hoopa at all. It’s possible that Hoopa is what we will see promised with Ultra Unlock 3 later in August, but it’s definitely not coming out during GoFest.
I'm assuming Hoopa is in raids?
In Australia, event almost done. Haven't seen Hoopa
Are shinies still boosted day 2?
I am not too sure, I didn't catch as many wild pokemon, and only got 1 shiny, none from raids
Yes, but less than day 1
Possibly Ultra Unlock #3
Oh, very possibly. Although, did we need to make all of the hourly challenges on day 1? I am pretty sure we missed one during Australia's 8 hours
Normally remote raid passes stack up to 3, will the free 3 ones and the research 8 ones stack on top? Or do I have to use them as I complete the research to have max 3?
The 8 research ones stack but the three in the shop won't.
If I buy the event pass now will it still allow me access to this? I was going to buy 550 coins to remote raid, but if you get 8 from doing the tasks sort of makes sense that I buy the pass instead. Cheers.
LeekDuck does it again!
>Transfer 20 Pokemon.
So you're saying I shouldn't have transferred all my excess Pokemon from today an hour ago then? Sigh. I guess I'd better start catching before I go to bed.
Just catch and transfer tomorrow
I did the same....
Wait so do we even get to catch Hoopa??
I hope raids will be going on constantly
I don’t get the special Research. 2 steps and terrible rewards. It felt like they forgot to finish the rest? Like if I forgot to do it, I wouldn’t even care.
Its just to help give people stuff to revive and heal their pokemon for raids. And it's not just for ticket holders
I thought multiple remote raid passes were supposed to be available this weekend. Have I missed those??
No. You get them one at a time as a reward for the challenge "battle in a raid" That challenge repeats 8 times
Thats the timed research in the second half of the pic
This weekend is pretty disappointing compared to last year right?? I’m still having fun but damn I expected more
Pretty sure this is far more raiding than last year, but I think day 2 last year was both rockets for SMewtwo and raids and you kind of had to pick. It's probably better to have it go all in on just one thing (raids this time).
I remember caring more about the day 1 spawns last year than this year, though. These were mostly boring this year.
I liked Day 2 last year because it had a (sorta) guaranteed reward of the Shadow Mewtwo encounter — you can do that solo. But 5 star raids are dependent on other players. Nobody is raiding where I live, so day 2 is useless to me.
You can find Remote Raid groups online and host and participate in Raids
Pokeraid, though it may be slow to fill if it's just a flooded with posts (raid hour is like that sometimes).
I used pokeraid on day 2 last year. It worked well.
Nah, I much prefer this year over last year, but I prefer raids over rockets
The rare candies for sending gifts, better pool of Pokémon, shadow mewtwo - it’s not even close
Remote. You get up to ten daily raid passes from gym spins.
So do we catch hoopa?
No. It's not part of the event, just the story behind it.
Makes sense /s
The timed research is definitely not in your today tab at all?
Did anyone have timed raiding research "start early" for them?
Someone on our fb chat has the timed research now and it's 4am here, the timer is gonna end before we get raids back. no one else in the chat had it happen to them...
Am I paranoid to think he was possibly up to shady things or did Niantic coding strike again?
I have redeemed the three passes from the free bundle, will I be able to stack all of the research ones or I have to spend one?
Remotes are stackable, the only limit is on getting them from the shop when you have more than 2

Are the eight timed research ones tied to each hour or could you do them all in a burst during hours three and four (for example)?
Got nothing to do with hours, you complete it by battling in a raid, then get the rewards, repeat
Special research a waste of time
What exactly is a “snapshot”? Taking pictures isn’t doing anything.
Haven’t gotten the research to receive 8 remote passes
I need 12 passes xd missed 2 on every hour and planning to get sie cobalion vizion and terrakion as extras if could
You'll get more than enough then, we get 21, mix of normal and remote
