Another type of raid egg has started appearing in Pokémon Go. A red egg, one that many call a bright crimson, begins to appear above Gyms in the mobile game, and these red eggs take a long time to hatch. When they finally reveal their Pokémon, they release powerful opponents, and you’ll want to bring more friends with you to take them out. Here’s what you need to know about red raid eggs in Pokémon Go.
How to red raid eggs in Pokémon Go
Red raid eggs in Pokémon Go are known as Elite Raids. These are some of the hardest challenges in the game, and much more complex than five-star raids. The Pokémon in these attacks will be more difficult. Unfortunately, you cannot invite friends who are not near the Gym to help you. You can only use players who are standing nearby. No Remote Raid Passes are available for this raid.

They will be next visible on December 10 in your local time zone, starting at 11 AM, 2 PM, and 5 PM in your time zone. Raid encounters will remain active for 30 minutes.
