Pokemon GO Fest 2021 - All Day One Raid Bosses

By Sam Woods

July 16, 2021

Pokemon GO Fest 2021 is upon us and there is a metric ton of activities to get involved in.

Alongside collection challenges, a plethora of event-exclusive wild spawns, shiny hunting and more, Niantic has blessed us with some special Pokemon GO Fest Day One Raid Bosses.

These Raid Bosses are slightly more unusual than the ones that we normally receive so it’s probably worth stocking up on some Raid Passes and diving in.

So, with that in mind, here are all the Pokemon you can encounter in Raid Battles during Pokemon GO Fest 2021’s first full day.

There are some really exciting One-Star Raid Bosses that have started to appear as part of this event. They include a rare Dragon-type Pokemon and one that’s sure to be a great help in battle.

You can check out the full list below:

  • Deino
  • Galarian Ponyta (Exclusive GO Fest Costume)
  • Galarian Zigzagoon (Exclusive GO Fest Costume)

We’ll be sure to update this list should it change throughout the day.


Alongside the varied range of One-Star Raid Bosses, Niantic has blessed us with some equally cool Three-Star Bosses. They include:

  • Cranidos
  • Galarian Weezing
  • Hitmontop

Again, should this change, we’ll update this post.

Five-Star Raids

The main Five-Star Raid Boss action kicks off tomorrow, Sunday, July 18, as all previous Legendary Raid Bosses return to Pokemon GO. However, until then, players are greeted with a good one.

That raid boss is none other than Mewtwo!

Mega Raids

Over the weekend for GO Fest, arguably the most powerful Mega Evolution currently in Pokemon GO will be appearing in raids.

Be prepared to raid Mega Gengar!
