Remote Raids & More Hinted Code!

Data Mine of New Text Items Added to Pokémon GO Code

Trainers! The crew over at Pokeminers have found some code that hints at the remote raiding system, buddies bringing you gifts to send to Friends, Abra Community Day, Marill Battle Day, 1 guaranteed win in GBL, and more! Let’s take a closer look at what all was found.

Please keep in mind, NONE of this information has been confirmed by Niantic, any and all events and Pokémon reported in this data mine can be changed and/or completely removed at any time. Take this with a grain of salt until an official announcement about them is made.

Remote Raid Passes

Premium and Regular Raid Passes Header

Remote raid passes are the most anticipated update to come to the game, since many players have been unable to raid for some time now. These raid passes come with a catch however, it seems they can only be purchased from the in-game shop! It is not known if players will receive any free remote passes, be it once or daily. It is also not known how much the remote raid passes will cost in the shop, whether it will cost the same as a 100 coin Premium Battle Pass, cheaper, or more expensive.

Other notable information about raid passes include:

You can only carry a certain number of remote raid passes at a time, and the game will warn you when you try to purchase too many.

"remote_raid_need_ticket" 

"At your current distance from this Gym, you need a Remote Raid Pass to join this raid. You can get Remote Raid Passes in the shop."

"remote_raid_max_remote_ticket_warning"

"You have reached the max number of Remote Raid Passes ({0}). Please try again when you have fewer Remote Raid Passes.

There will be a maximum number of remote raiders allowed in a single lobby. The game will warn you when there are too many players or when you will overflow into a different lobby.

Pokémon will do less damage in the raid if a remote raid pass is used; and, Invitations can be sent out to friends who can then join the raid remotely.

Updates for your buddy

Pokémon GO Buddy Run Header

Buddy giving gift in iPhoneHaven’t spun a PokéStop in a while and wish you could send Gifts to your Friends during these complicated times? Your buddy may be able to help you!

Text was found describing your buddy bringing you Gifts that can be sent to your Friends. (Similar to the recent conceptual article by our very own Dare called Buddy Run! Be sure to check it out!)

This would make it easier for players to send Gifts to those who matter most, and with the increased numbers of Poké Balls in Gifts, this could help a lot of players.

Abra Special Research

Abra Community Day Header

Abra may have teleported away from it’s initial event time, but it seems like it could be coming back on April 25th. Text containing details about the special ticketed research, Investigating Illusions, that was to take place congruently with the Community Day event was found in the files with the date April 25th, and the time 11:00 am-5:00 pm local time.

Whether this will still be the whole Community Day or just the special ticketed research is unknown.

Marill Header Image

Marill Battle Day

To be honest, we have no clue why Marill Battle Day would be a thing, but Azumarill is a great Pokémon to add to your Great League Team. Supposedly, during this day, Marill will be featured in Go Battle League encounters. Whether it will be a day where every encounter you earn will be Marill, or not, is unknown, but if you do not have a good Azumarill yet, you can look forward to this event.
