All Raid Day event-exclusive Legendary Pokémon raids, schedule, and details for Pokémon Go Fest 2021
18 July, 2021 - 11:01pm
Pokémon Go Fest 2021 is the game’s biggest event, but also one of the most confusing due to its numerous moving parts. Some elements of the event might only be active for a limited time before giving way to another feature or going away entirely.
This year, the event is running on July 17 and 18 from 10am to 6pm local time, with new bonuses and encounters such as Meloetta and other Pokémon wearing Meloetta-inspired hats.
Each day of the Go Fest 2021 will focus on specific areas. Day one focused on hourly habitats, special costumed Pokémon, and the Global Arena Challenges, while day two is going to be a special raid day featuring every Legendary Pokémon that has ever been available in Pokémon Go.
Because of this division, event spawns, raids, and other bonuses are going to work a bit differently from the typical Pokémon Go event. The raid hours, for instance, will determine which Pokémon appear in five-star raids based on the time of day.
There are four individual raid hours running on day two: Wind, Lava, Frost, and Thunder. Here are all the details you need to know for each one, including when they’ll be active and what you can expect to see in each. You should also keep an eye out for Hoopa’s rings and some new Special Research.
Starting with the Wind Hour, players will see an odd mix of Legendary Pokémon appearing, most of which can at least fly… kind of. This is the only raid hour that doesn’t have a consistent theme for most of its included Pokémon, but at least there are a ton of Shiny Legendaries.
This raid hour will run at 10am and again at 2pm local time.
Moving past Wind and focusing on the Earth, the Lava Hour does follow a very specific theme: Fire, Ground, and Rock-type Pokémon. The only exception is Yveltal, which does typically act as a harbinger of destruction, so it fits the lava motif well enough.
This raid hour will run at 11am and again at 3pm local time.
Moving from the heat to the cold, the Frost Hour flips things around focuses on Water and Ice-type Pokémon. Sinnoh’s Lake Trio will also be available during this rotation, though they still act as regional exclusives.
This raid hour will run at 12pm and again at 4pm local time.
The final raid hour will ask players to brave the storm, entering the Thunder Hour in order to track down powerful Electric and Steel-type Legendary Pokémon. Xerneas is the only outlier in this portion of the event, and it doesn’t fit nearly as well as Yveltal does in its themed hour.
This raid hour will run at 1pm and at 5pm local time.

Mabel recorded "Take It Home" exclusively for Pokémon 25: The Album, joining artists Katy Perry, Post Malone and J Balvin on the celebratory compilation album. The song's "playful" music video -- directed by Sophia Ray -- finds Mabel "trying to unwind in her hotel room after a busy day. Flipping through the channels on the television, she's delighted to find a Pokémon channel." What follows is a dream sequence in which Mabel explores the bizarre hotel alongside Jigglypuff, with Pikachu also making a cameo.
"I've been a fan of Pokémon for years, so I jumped at the opportunity to join the P25 program," Mabel said in an official press release. "I had so much fun working with Pikachu and my all-time favorite Pokémon, Jigglypuff, for the 'Take It Home' video. I hope the fans love the song as much as I loved working on it to celebrate 25 years of Pokémon!"
"Mabel's incredible talent and pop sensibilities add a massive layer of fun to Pokémon's P25 Music campaign celebrating 25 years of Pokémon," added The Pokémon Company International's Vice President of Marketing Colin Palmer. "Music fans are going to love 'Take It Home,' and Pokémon fans will be delighted to see a Jigglypuff, known for being a bubbly Pokémon who also loves to sing, featured in Mabel's vibrant video. It's a pitch-perfect collaborative match for our 25th anniversary celebration."
"Take It Home" by Mabel is currently available to stream as a single.
