Pokémon Go: Latest Raid Bosses in July - get Mewtu!

Update July 21, 2021: After Pokémon Go Fest 2021, some players are bound to feel a little Legendary fatigue. And to dispel this, the developers at Niantic have just added Mewtu to the raids at the end of July 2021, which you can of course also get as a Shiny if you're lucky. In the easier raids, you can also get Metagross (Cartridge Strike and Star Strike are an unbeatable combo) and Sniebel (a passable counter as Snibunna). We've got the rundown on the raid bosses in Pokémon Go in July 2021 - and which ones are lucky enough to come as Shiny.

Tier 1 Raids

Sniebel *, Zobiris *, Kanivanha *, Rotomurf, Psiau

Tier 3 Raids

Parasek, Woingenau *, Lepumentas, Metagross

Tier-5 Raids

Mewtu *

Mega Raids

Mega-Gengar *

EX-Raids

Original post from July 2, 2021: What Pokémon are currently available as raid bosses in Pokémon Go in July 2021? Well, first and foremost, there's the new star in Tier 5 Raids, as Deoxys (Defense Form) is back after more than two years, and this time not just as a relatively exclusive and inaccessible EX Raid boss, but as the top boss in Tier 5 Raids. In other words, any trainer with a few friends or a long-distance Raid Pass and a bit of group luck has the opportunity to snag the defensively strong Deoxys. You can expect to be able to fight other forms of Deoxys by August at the latest.

Current raid bosses in Tier 1 and Tier 3

Because Deoxys is best attacked with Unlight counters, there are a few candidates in the lower tier raids. Especially interesting in Tier 1 are Rihorn, because Rihornior is generally still a really good counter in PvE, and Lichtel, which you can eventually turn into a powerful Skelabra. And that's also good in the fight against Deoxys - you can test that out for yourself until July 16, 2021. Then, starting July 17, 2021, Mewtu will be back in the raids.

From the Tier 3 Raids, we can also recommend Despotar (again and again). Below is the overview of the current raid bosses in July 2021. Which of them you can catch with luck as a Shiny, tells you our * mark.

Tier 1 Raids

Traumato *, Rizeros *, Kramux *, Zwirrlicht *, Lichtel

Tier 3 Raids

Alola Knogga *. Pinsir *. Despotar, Absol *

Tier 5 Raids

Deoxys (Defense Form).

Mega Raids
