Nihilego is coming back to Pokemon Go Gyms near you for a rotation in five-star raid battles. This Ultra Beast is the headliner of Pokemon Go’s new “Astral Eclipse” event. We don’t know much about this new event other than the headlining raid bosses.
Nihilego raid schedule
Nihilego will appear as the only five-star raid boss in Pokemon Go starting at 10 AM local time on November 23, 2022 and will remain available to battle until the same time on December 1. Raids do not generally follow a set schedule, and Nihilego raids will appear randomly at Gyms around the world during this time period, but you will receive a notification from the game when a raid is about to begin nearby. Like the recent Guzzlord raids, Nihilego raids will be signified by an Ultra Wormhole appearing on top of a Gym instead of a typical raid egg.
Your best chance to find Nihilego raids is during the Raid Hours in which the Parasite Pokemon will be featured. Every Wednesday from 6 PM to 7 PM local time, the majority of Gyms host five-star raids for Trainers to work together to take down. Nihilego will be the featured raid boss in the raid hours on November 23 and 30, 2022. As with all raids, you’ll need your free daily Raid Pass or a Premium Battle Pass to join a raid in person, or a Remote Raid Pass to join a raid remotely.
