“We're introducing a take a look at affecting tier 1 and tier 3 Raid Battles in some areas. Trainers taking part in Raids in these areas will see a decreased countdown timer earlier than the beginning of the Raid to 60 seconds for tier 1 Raids and 80 seconds for tier 3.” – @NianticHelp by way of Twitter (X)

We are able to assume that if this take a look at is profitable, the options will probably be added completely to Pokemon GO. That is the second change to raid lobbies in latest month, with the ‘Prepared! Button' added in August to hurry up the raid timer if all taking part trainers are prepared. Because the raid prepared button can't be used when you're the lone coach in a raid, this could possibly be a implausible replace to hurry up raiding for solo raiders.

The place is the function being examined?

There at present have been no reviews of the take a look at in-game but. This will imply the take a look at has not begun but however be happy to tell us on our socials when you discover any of those take a look at raids. As soon as we all know places and have screenshots they are going to be shared right here.

Is that this an excellent function?

In my view, this can be a first rate function that trainers would have cherished to have had sooner. It has been 6 years since Raids debuted in 2017 and the 2 minute timer has already been a frustration for a lot of trainers solo raiding throughout that point. As solo raiders can not utilise the ‘raid prepared' button, it's nice to see Niantic experimenting with making these soloable raids much less time consuming. Who wants to attend the total two minutes earlier than they raid an Espurr that takes 10 seconds to defeat?

From feedback on the unique announcement, many individuals imagine that permitting trainers to press the prepared button in Tier 1 and three raids ought to be added as an alternative. I partially agree however this does trigger issues if trainers aren't robust sufficient to defeat the raid, if trainers are driving raid to raid, and if shorter timers should not permitting individuals sufficient time to hitch, particularly if becoming a member of by way of distant raid invitations.

Will probably be attention-grabbing to see whether or not or not this function is adopted for the decrease tier raids sooner or later after this ‘experiment' ends!
