Pokémon Go Raid Schedule: All Current Bosses and Counters (July 2021)

Coming soon, to a Gym near you!

One of the most frequently changed features in Pokémon Go is the list of Raids. They change with seasons and events and sometimes without warning. This leaves many players in the dark about which Pokémon they should add to their team roster to counter them.

In the guide below, we list all the current Raid Bosses and those that are known in the future with their basic stats and best counters. To jump to a specific section of this guide, use the links below. This guide will change as new Raid lineups come and go, so be sure to bookmark this page!
