Suicune, the aurora Pokémon, is one of the legendary Pokémon you can battle in Pokémon Go raids.
Suicune, like all legendary Pokémon, appears in five-star raids and, to defeat it, you may need to team up with other players. Thanks to the power of Remote Raid Passes, however, you can do this from the comfort of your own home.

Everything else we know about Suicune in Pokémon Go
This legendary trio was created by Ho-Oh, the trio's master, after a series of disastrous events occurred in the Burnt Tower of Ecruteak City in the Johto region. The tower was, first, struck by lightning, which started a fire. This fire was ultimately put out by the rain and wind.
The legendary beasts are believed to embody these three events, but what Ho-Oh actually created them from is unknown. A popular fan theory, however, is that they are reincarnations or revived forms of the original three Eeveelutions - Vaporeon, Jolteon and Flareon.
Suicune was also the mascot Pokémon for Pokémon Crystal and had its own storyline within the game, which was reworked slightly in Pokémon Soulsilver and Heartgold.
Good luck catching Suicune in Pokémon Go!
