Every Wednesday evening, Pokémon Go features a Pokémon for their weekly Raid Hour. The schedule for each month is typically released towards the end of the previous month. Unfortunately, this month, there are no special features for the Pokémon being featured in the Raid Hours, except for Genesect.

  • January 5 Featured Pokémon: Kyurem
  • January 12 Featured Pokémon: Heatran
  • January 19 Featured Pokémon: Genesect with Shock Drive
    • Special Features: This is the first time Genesect with Shock Drive will be featured in a Raid Hour.
  • January 26 Featured Pokémon: Regice

During every Raid hour, the Pokémon featured for the week will have a massively increased spawn rate in 5-star Raids for one hour, which is always at 6pm to 7pm local time. This means that no matter where you are in the world, the Raid Hour will always start at 6pm for you. These Raid Hours will not only feature these special Pokémon, but they will also show up much more frequently.
