‘Pokemon Go’ Raid Boss List: Which Appear at Each Egg Star Level & Color?

A list of raid bosses and CPs per egg stars and colors. (Niantic)

With the new gym mechanic in place, Pokemon Go trainers are participating in raid battles at all levels, trying to work together to bring down the strongest Pokemon. Although Niantic hasn’t released an official list of which Raid Bosses appear at which levels, trainers are compiling their information so they can have a better idea of what to expect. Here is a list of what trainers have discovered so far about which Raid Bosses appear at each egg tier level, and what the Raid Bosses’ CP is. Remember, an egg’s color indicates what level of difficulty the Raid Boss will be. A pink egg means the Raid Boss is one or two stars (easier to beat), yellow is three or four stars, and dark blue can be a five-star — possibly a legendary.

So here are the Raid Bosses that have been recorded appearing at each Raid Battle level so far. This information comes from a variety of sources, including Redditors participating in threads here, here, here, and here. If you encounter a different Raid Boss at a different level, please let us know in the comments below. We will update this story as there is more information, so be sure and bookmark this article and come back soon.
