How to Invite Friends To Raids in Pokemon Go

To invite friends to raids in Pokemon Go, you just need to do the following steps: Once you're in the game and find a raid you want to jump into, tap the "+" button. You'll be able to invite up to five friends to play with you, and they'll receive a push notification if they have those enabled.

The current maximum amount of invited players who can perform in a raid is 10, though it was originally 5. Niantic have not made it clear when this will be reverted back to what it was before, but we'll update this page accordingly when/if changes are made in the future.

How to Accept a Raid Invitation

If someone invites you, you'll find the request in the "Nearby" screen, and there are no friendship level requirements, either. That means you won't have to grind friendship levels to be able to raid together, you can do it with anyone!
