What are Pokemon GO Shadow Raid bosses?

Shadow Raid bosses are new boss type Pokemon that can be found in the Shadow Raid event and during raids. This will give players the chance to catch Shadow Pokemon in raids, and they will be recoloured with special stats and moves. As well as this, new Shadow-type Pokemon can also be found in their shiny variant, giving players more of an excuse to take them on.


How to find Pokemon GO Shadow Raid bosses

Launching on May 22 as part of the "Rising Shadows" event, some stronger raids will randomly have Shadow Pokemon as bosses for you to take on. This means that it will be hard to predict but, if you are near some gyms, you should be able to patrol them until one picks up. Of course, you can also use your Remote Raid Passes to enter a raid without being geographically close. It seems likely that more powerful Shadow Pokemon will arrive in more populated areas, making co-op play more viable.
