Pokemon Go’s promised Remote Raid feature, Which will let players staying at home attend in-game’s gyms, is now live. Remote Raid Passes are now available in Pokemon Go’s in-game shop, and the feature to compete in raids remotely is accessible to players who have reached level 40. As previously announced, Remote Raid Passes. Will be available at a steep discount: A pack of three is available for one PokeCoin from the shop. Extra Remote Raid Passes are available for 100 PokeCoins each and in a bundle of three for 250 PokeCoins.

Remote Raid Passes will initially act similarly to the game’s standard Raid Pass. Up to 20 players can join the same raid battle, but the number of players who can join with a remote Raid Pass will be limited (to a number that Niantic did not specify). At some point, Pokemon Go players using a Remote Raid Pass will see their attack power decreased.

“At launch, Trainers battling in raids remotely will have the same attack power as Trainers who are able to battle at the raid location in person,” Niantic said earlier this month. “At a later time, the attack power for Trainers battling remotely will be reduced. Afterward, a trainer battling at the raid location in person will have higher attack power than a Trainer battling remotely.”

Remote Raid Battles are part of Niantic’s Ongoing efforts to make Pokemon Go playable to Pokemon fans who can’t venture outside, thanks to stay-at-home orders amid the coronavirus pandemic. The timing is helpful for players who haven’t been able to capture Landorus, the Legendary Pokemon that’s leaving Raids on Tuesday, April 28. Time is also running out to catch April’s Research Breakthrough reward.
