Every 24 hour period, starting midnight.
Raids only take place between 9am and 9pm

Just completed my first Raid, was a 4600CP Bayleef.

My app stalled the first time, so I missed the first attempt, which was maybe 20 seconds. I rebooted my app started again, and battled the Bayleef by myself - it took about 40 seconds.

Not bad to get 3 rare candy, and a golden razzberry.

Placed 2 in gyms this afternoon, and one was returned at 10:30 pm with 50 coins, and the other shows in my journal as returning exactly at 12:00 am, along with another 50 coins.

200 coins in the last 4 days, if it continues anything remotely like this, I can't complain.

Normally, I've gone a long time in between being able to buy incubators. This time, I'm 4.3 km into my first egg, and I could buy another.

Finally grabbed Unknown last night.
Still waiting on a Tyrogue hatch to complete regional pokedex.
Hate being limited to 50 coins per day, after getting 100 a day for months now, but otherwise like the idea of the new gym system.

Just snagged a 96% rhydon at the raid downtown. Also, hatched a 93% larvitar on the same walk. Pretty solid stuff!

Got a charged TM, and used it on my 100% IV Machamp. Now has dynamic punch, instead of Heavy Slam. Much better.

I must have hatched a couple of things in my sleep cause I woke up this morning with 32 Dratini candy and an extra Dratini, and 18 Larvitar candy and an extra Larvitar!

I did a mass evolve yesterday, now at 223 for the Dex. I'll be trying to get a Dragonite forever, it's the only thing I'm missing from the Gen 1 dex. I figure I'll also be on Tyranitar and Ampharos forever as well.

I dropped a 1757 Vaporeon into a gym that's on a major bus route. It's now been there 19 hours, so I'm guessing I'll never be getting it back. Too easy for someone riding the bus to top it off.

Really odd situation where you want to drop in Pokemon that are strong enough to survive 8 hours and 20 minutes, but no more. After that you are dependent on the other teams to get them back, and your own "teammates" hurt you by feeding it.

With all the money they're making could Niantic not have hired an actual game designer? Someone with an understanding of gameplay and the effects rules and incentives have on player behaviour?

This structure really incentivizes having a second account in order to boot out your own Pokemon.

Goodbye forever, Vaporean. You might've been quite useful for raiding.

I had a 2475 Rhydon in a gym near my work for over 21 hours. It'll get booted out eventually.

All it takes is for someone on a different team to have to wait for a bus for 10 minutes, and you'll get your Pokemon back.

Now 5 straight days with the max 50 coins. And if any of the 5 Pokemon I currently have in a gym lasts until midnight, I should have another 50 tomorrow.

The level 1 raids someone can handle by themselves.

The 24000 blastoise you won't be able to take down by yourself, you'll need friends, or other people to battle at the same time as you.

If you beat the raid boss, you get rewards based on your contribution to the overall effort, and you get an opportunity to catch a normal version of the boss (IVs on this catch will have the same restrictions as eggs - all three numbers will be at least 10/15)
