But now, there is no such limitation, and the company clarifies that the players can also send invites worldwide. In this article, we will discuss how you can invite friends and catch more Pokemon with remote raid pass. We will also learn about the alternative of remote raid pass for spoofing Pokemon Go.

Remote raid pass gives you the opportunity to invite your friends to raids in Pokemon Go. Players that have reached level 32 or up can invite friends worldwide.

To bring friends into the Raid, you need to join the Raid first and then press the "plus players" icon. You can invite five friends to raid in the Pokemon Go. Tick in front of the names of the friends to send them to invite for the Raid. Now, wait for the response of friends to accept your invitation.

However, everyone needs a remote raid pass to join the Raid. Plus, no one can use the pass until the battle starts, no matter if you are present in the lobby or not. It means you will not be used until you join battle.

Also, if everyone faints in the squad, the players can try another battle without the need to use another raid pass. Along with advantages, there are some limitations and requirements for inviting friends in raids.
