The vast majority of players have been discussing the possibility of performing a raid #Battle outside the gyms. But is it possible to play a raid battle without actually being in one of these gyms? Is there any way to do it remotely? Apparently, it could be possible.

Next, will we share with you, new interesting details about Raid Battles added to the new update and some tips for finding and capturing the rarest Pokémon in the game.

How to play a Raid Battle without being at a Gym?

Playing a Raid Battle without being at a Gym in the augmented reality game of "Pokemon Go" could be possible. Players must be within the radius of the gym in question to be able to start a raid battle. Once they are in the lobby, it is virtually impossible that the game can detect their location.

An interesting fact to take into account is that players should use a Raid pass to start the raid battle, and after obtaining this raid pass, they walk to their house, without needing to be outside the gym location in order to complete the Raid.

If you are on a bus, and for one reason or another, the vehicle in which you are traveling stops near a place where there is a Raids Battle about to happen, you can start the battle. While it is true that if you travel on public transport, the vehicle will not stay for a long time in that place. However, you can continue to participate in the battle even if you are no longer in the gym. Obviously, this should only be done if you are a passenger. According to "Pokemon Go" rules, the Augmented Reality game should never be played while driving.

This is all the information known so far. Keep enjoying the game, and stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
