The Pokemon Go friend feature provides you with a way to trade, battle, and send gifts with your friends. But it also allows you to invite people to raids. However, if you don’t raid, or find that you are receiving too many of these invitations, then you may be wondering how to disable raid invitations in Pokemon Go.
While many raids in Pokemon Go can be completed by one person, there are higher level raids that can require more trainers. With the introduction of remote raiding and the ability to invite friends, this opens up a much larger world of potential raids.
When someone invites you to a raid you see a banner at the top of the screen (when playing Pokemon Go.) Additionally, depending on your settings, you may see an alert on your lock screen, too.
But not everyone enjoys raids, and these notifications can be more of a hassle than a welcome addition.
Fortunately it’s possible to turn off the raid invitations in Pokemon Go so that you stop receiving them.
How to Disable Raid Invitations in Pokemon Go
- Open Pokemon Go.
