Full Announcement Text


A new arrival to Raids will test your strength this next month! The Steel- and Dragon-type Temporal Pokémon, Dialga, will join Raid Battles across the world from March 1 at 1:00 p.m. PST to March 28 at 1:00 p.m. PDT!

With the ability to warp time by slowing it down, speeding it up, and even stopping it altogether, Sinnoh region mythology says that time began moving when Dialga was born. Be sure to assemble a team that includes Fighting- and Ground-type Pokémon to take down this Legendary Pokémon of Sinnoh before it overpowers your Pokémon with its special attacks!

Don’t miss this chance to catch this Legendary Pokémon before it leaves for a new dimension! Stay safe, and happy exploring!
