Pokémon GO To Throw Out The Rule Book By Offering Stay-At-Home Raid Battles

Pokemon GO Raid Battles

The latest in a string of new updates for Pokémon GO will see a hugely significant change to the game’s signature Raid Battles, as developer Niantic does its bit to help players stay safe at home during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

In a blog post, Niantic founder John Hanke has shared the company’s vision for transforming its real-world, outdoors-focused games into titles that can also be enjoyed – and be just as innovative – indoors. He says, “you’ll soon be able to team up with friends and take on Raid Battles together in Pokémon GO from the comfort of home,” a change that is designed to help players stay in touch when they’re unable to meet in real life.

Raid Battles have become one of the app’s key features over the years, with players flocking to real-life locations to team up and defeat powerful Pokémon in the wild. Needing to get out there and find other players to mix with has been one of the game’s key ingredients, so this is arguably the biggest change we’ve seen for the game yet.

In the same blog post, Hanke also notes that improvements are planned for the game’s Adventure Sync feature – which should help it to more accurately track indoor movement and activities – and that Niantic is “re-imagining what it means” to participate in live events, with “an entirely new way to enjoy Pokémon GO Fest” in the works.
