Raid Passes are items that can be acquired by spinning the Photo Disc at a Gym. The passes are used by trainers to participate in Raid Battles. Raid Passes can only be obtained by trainers on level 5 and above, because trainers do not have access to gyms before reaching level 5.
There are three types of these passes:
regular Raid Pass,
Premium Battle Pass
and EX Raid Pass.
To see currently-owned Raid Passes, players can check them out on the item bag page .
Details Trainers can receive one free Raid Pass per day by visiting a Gym, but can only hold one at a time.
