January 17, 2022: The Pokémon GO raid bosses have cycled again. Genesect (Shock Drive) is now in five-star raids, with the three and one-star raid roster changing, too.

The roster of Pokémon GO raid bosses constantly changing with each new event, it can be hard to know what's about to hatch from those eggs. Until there's an in-game resource for such a thing, we'll have the updated list right here.

The current Pokémon GO Raid bosses are as detailed in the table above. Any Pokémon with an asterisk (*) by the name can be shiny, but the odds of this will differ depending on the raid tier.
