Pokémon GO, Raid Battles available to many but not for everyone

It’s been a few days since the biggest update ever released for Pokémon GO, which we mentioned in our article. In addition to the restyling of gyms, which have a whole new look and a new gaming mechanics, the real big news is the Raid Battles, the first real form of cooperation between the popular Niantic players.

If you have not yet figured out how to access the new game mode, do not worry. In fact, you may not have the necessary requirements or that you are not in the vicinity of one of the selected Gyms for the new game mode. Through a series of tweets, Niantic developer has made it clear that Raid Battles will only be accessible to players who have reached or exceeded a certain level.

The limit was initially placed at level 35 but was subsequently lowered to level 25 and it is not said that it can not go further in the next few days. It is not clear, however, which gyms are currently interested in the new game mode, but it is likely that in the coming weeks the feature will be extended to all game gyms.

If you are lucky enough to find yourself in the vicinity of one of the licensed gyms, with the Raid Balltes you will find rare Pokémon, and some rewarding features such as rare candies, golden berries or technical machines. Tell us about your experience after the new update in the comments box.
