Pokemon Go Genesect Raid Guide: Best Counters, Weaknesses, Raid Hours, And More Tips

Genesect is coming back to a Pokemon Go Gym near you for a limited-time appearance in five-star raid battles. This Mythical Pokemon returns with a new version of its signature move, Techno Blast, along with Pokemon Go’s Bug Out event. We haven’t seen Genesect in raids in Pokemon Go in close to a year, so new players and those who might be coming back from a break are surely itching to add this powerful Bug and Steel-type Pokemon to their collections, and veterans can benefit from its newest Drive. Here’s everything you need to know about the Genesect Raids in Pokemon Go.

Genesect Raid Schedule

Genesect has already begun appearing as the sole five-star raid boss as of 10 AM local time on August 10 and will remain in five-star raids until the same time on August 18. Raids do not generally follow a set schedule, and Genesect raids will appear randomly at Gyms around the world during this time period, but you will receive a notification from the game when a raid is about to begin nearby. Genesect caught during this time will have the Chill Drive, allowing it to know the Ice-type version of its exclusive move, Techno Blast. Techno Blast is notable among exclusive moves because the Drive a Genesect has currently cannot be switched, so even with an Elite Charged TM the type of Techno Blast cannot be changed (and Genesect with no Drive still cannot learn Techno Blast at all).

Your best chance to find a Genesect raid (or a lot of them) is during the two Raid Hours in which the Paleozoic Pokemon will be featured. Every Wednesday from 6 PM to 7 PM local time, the majority of Gyms host five-star raids for Trainers to work together to take down. The two Raid Hours that will occur during Genesect’s tenancy in five-star raids will be August 10 and 17. As always, you’ll need your free daily Raid Pass or a Premium Battle Pass to join a raid in person, or a Remote Raid Pass to join a raid remotely.
