roughly nine hours ago, at exactly 12:00 AM Thursday, Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), a new wave of EX Raid invites has gone live!

It’s a massive wave again, targeting non-sponsored gyms all across the globe. The raid is mostly scheduled at 12:00-13:00 and happens on 1st of October.

By the way, it seems that Australia and Canada are included also! G’day to all Aussie and Canadian trainers, nice to have you onboard.

We can confirm that the invites are also live in wider areas of Europe (England included too!), North America, South America and Asia.

It’s getting really hard to track all of the reports, as our Twitter report thread just went  over 200 replies and our mail has more than 150 unread messages. Well, it sure looks like a really big wave of invites.

Here are a few tips before we try to list all the confirmed places. If you got an EX Raid invite, be sure to read our Mewtwo Raid Boss guide. If you did not get an invite, make sure to do the following:

          • Charito Jaquin

            I know for certain that the ex pass I received was from a raid over 3 weeks ago. I hadn’t raided in my area in 2 weeks and hadn’t been in the town I got the pass in for longer than that. I was on vacation hundreds of miles away.

  • Johnson Ning

      I’m also a HongKonger so I feel the same as you. Don’t worry about that, the day will eventually come.

      • Alton Wong

        I think I will need to wait for a long time.(crying)

        • Edwin Fung

          You may create an account in the Go Hub forum to express your view as a HongKonger. My account name is Yoshi and my posts and comments may help you out.

          • Jay Kit

            People have received invitation to Air Mail Center and Stanley.

          • Edwin Fung

            Eh why there but not Mongkok or Causeway bay?

          • Jay Kit

            Ask Niantic, wonder if all Ex Raid location are that distant from around the world.

          • Edwin Fung

            That sounds strange. I don’t think people who had received the invitation were able to participate in Ex raid.

          • Jay Kit

            I thought the first Ex Raids only start on October 1st?

          • Edwin Fung

            Do you mean the date of Ex raids release ‘worldwide’?

          • Jay Kit

            sir yes

    What the actual f*ck. They said you can only get ex raid passes with sponsored gyms in the Netherlands in malls. We only have 4 malls here so i did every f*cking raid in one of these malls and now suddenly they don’t do sponsorde gyms only in Some small villages that’s got a player base of 5 people!

  • Rob Freeman

    I live in Paris,Tennessee a small town 2 hours west of Nashville and we got 2 EX Raids. We did get more time to plan as ours are both September 30 12 to 1pm Central time. Only bad part is families were split and being a small town we all raid together weekly. Somehow it seems more were invited to 1 site and a smaller group of higher levels and low to mid 30s got invited to the other.

  • Chris Denton

    This marks the 3rd ex raid in the town I work in. I did get invited to this one, I just hope people show up. It sucks that I have to depend on others to show up when I have no control over that. We shall see. I’m in southern Indiana and I have seen a total of 4 ex raids, all of which were not in sponsored gyms. That could be because there aren’t any sponsored gyms.

    1 of those 4 I sat at and no one showed up. That made me pretty nauseous. Fortunately I wasn’t invited to that one.

    I got an invite from 1 solo battle with a tier 2 boss.
