Get 5 Raid Passes

Raid Pass

During Raid Day, you'll be able to obtain 5 free raid passes by usign the Photo Disk at a Gym, as opposed to the usual 1! When Raid Day is over you'll not only lose the chance to get 4 more passes than usual, but you'll also become unable to use the free bonus raid passes you obtained, so be careful!

You Can Only Have 2 Raid Passes

Raid passes you obtain from Photo Disks at Gyms are different from Premium battle passes in that you can't have more than 2! Therefore, in order to get all 5 passes from one gym, you'll need to participate in raid battles at least 4 times!
