How Raid Achievements and Achievement Rewards Work in Pokémon Go Explained
Raid achievements are rewarded at the end of an encounter, before the rewards and Pokémon capture screen appear.
Achievements range from skill within a raid, such as using the most charged attacks to make the final attack, to more novel feats, such as having the tallest Pokémon in battle or being the player who has joined from the furthest away.
Although you can save your achievements as an image on your device, rewarded achievements are not cataloged anywhere; Instead, they simply go towards the Raid Expert medal, which rewards you for the number of achievements you’ve received in total.
This means you can participate in Raids without worrying about pursuing a specific objective. This is useful as early experience suggests that achievements are somewhat unpredictable – seeing the Style Savant achievement come to players with minimal avatar changes, for example.
Other types of achievements don’t feel like a reward at all: as a solo raider, we got the “deliver the final attack” achievement, for example, which would probably be a given since there was no one else around to finish the raid.
Only a limited number of players will receive achievements as rewards at the end of a raid. In our experience, a raid of six only awarded achievements to three players, while others rewarded five for larger groups. This limited number could be why it might be worth working towards one or two specific achievements, although from everything we’ve seen, what you’ll receive will still be random.

Everything you need to know about the Together We Raid update in Pokémon Go
While the Trainer Raid achievements are the most tangible addition to the game as part of the Together We Raid update (which is ultimately used to unlock a new medal), it is otherwise a cosmetic update for the Raid and Gym encounters. .
Major changes include a larger stadium with more spectators and the raid lobby transition screen color matching the team currently occupying the gym. You can watch the video embedded at the top of this article to see what it all looks like.
Otherwise, the music, sound effects, and opening lobby remain the same, as does the capture encounter at the end.
