Trainers,

just as we finished publishing that Gen III gender ratios, forms and spawn definitions are now live in the Game Master, we’ve observed a new wave of EX Raid passes being sent out world wide! As usual, read our Mewtwo Raid guide to prepare.

We can confirm that a new EX Raid is happening on October 20, 2017, in sponsored and non sponsored gyms worldwide. This EX Raid only lasts for 45 minutes, probably as an experiment to see how EX raid duration affects player engagement and attendance.

This wave of invites also confirms Niantic’s statement that EX Raid testing is not yet finished. Hopefully, everyone will be able to get a Mewtwo before the field tests end.

We confirmed that EX Raid invites were received in the following countries/territories:

  • Argentina
  • Germany
  • Brasil
  • USA
  • Cuba
  • New Zealand
  • France
  • Canda
  • Australia
  • United Kingdom
  • Alaska
  • Costa Rica
  • Nicaragua
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Chile
  • Netherlands
  • Japan
  • Finland
  • Mexico
  • Peru
  • Uruguay

A special shout out goes to the Pokemon GO Hub ES crew for reporting this literary seconds after it happened:

If we’re not mistaken, this seems to be the largest EX Raid test to date, covering almost all territories where the game is available. Even Reversal got a Raid pass this time around:

Again, 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:
