After participating in Raid Battles, Pokemon Go players have the opportunity to receive special items. But you won’t always receive the same items every time, so what is the drop rate for the Raid Battle items? Which ones are given out frequently, and which ones are more rare?
It appears that the frequency at which you receive Raid Battle items depends on what tier level the gym is. On Reddit this week, a survey was conducted among over 1,200 players, with these fans making note of how often they received the three special items: Golden Razz Berries, Rare Candy, and Technical Machines.
For Tier 1 Raid Battles, 75 percent of players received at least one Golden Razz Berry, while 25 percent received none at all. Meanwhile, 78 percent of players received at least one Rare Candy, while about 22 percent received none at all. But when it came to Technical Machines, just 11 percent received this item, while an overwhelming 89 percent of players did not.
For Tier 2 Raid Battles, about 78 percent of players received at least one Golden Razz Berry, while 22 percent received none at all. In addition, 80 percent received at least one Rare Candy, while about 20 percent received none at all. And once again, Technical Machines are rare, with just 14 percent of players getting one and 86 percent not getting any. As you can see, the drop rate of all of the items goes up just a few percentage points with Tier 2 Raid Battles.
For Tier 3 Raid Battles, it becomes much more common to receive these items, as 87 percent of players received a Golden Razz Berry, while only 13 percent received none at all. And 82 percent of players received a Rare Candy, while just about 18 percent didn’t receive any. Technical Machines are now easier to come by as well, with 40 percent of players getting a Technical Machine but 60 percent still not getting any.
Finally, for Tier 4 Raid Battles, just about 90 percent of players received a Golden Razz Berry, with just 10 percent not getting at least one of these items. Plus, 88 percent received at least one Rare Candy, with 12 percent not receiving any. And at this level, the majority of players go home with a Technical Machine, with 64 percent getting one of these items and 36 percent not getting one.
As you can see, Golden Razz Berries and Rare Candies are commonly given out after winning at all four Raid Battle tiers, whereas for a Technical Machine, it’s technically possible to earn one at each level, but they’re relatively rare until you get up to tiers three and four.
