Let’s invite basically 9 trainers(guests)!

Let’s join the Raids with 10 or more trainers including the host and guest so that you can win with confidence even if there are trainers who do not have countermeasures Pokemon ready, low TL trainers, beginner trainers!
Also, if you join the raid with a large number of people, you can defeat them faster and the speed bonus (★5/★3/★1) and mega energy (mega raid) will increase, so it is recommended.

  1. First, the host enters the Raid Lobby and invite 5 trainers at once.
    By setting the order of Friends to “Friendship” in order of increasing, guests who have just become Friends can be displayed at the top.
  2. After confirming that 1 guest trainer has entered the lobby, the host exits there once.
  3. The host re-enters the original Raid Lobby.
  4. The host Invites additional 4 trainers.
    * If the host has access to the gym, can invite additional 5 trainers.
    * After the first invitation, there will be a 30 second cooldown time. After 30 seconds, the second invitation will be available.

【rough indication of time schedule】
