Exclusive Raids Announced


the first European EX Raid has finished roughly an hour ago and our Spanish crew was at the Bonaire chopping center in Valencia, fighting Mewtwo and reporting for the Hub.

If you’re a Spanish speaking reader, we highly recommend that you follow our ES Twitter account: @PokemonGOHubES. In any case, check out our Mewtwo Raid Boss guide and be ready for your EX Raid.


Report in Spanish, our English version and a video of the event is below:

Hoy hemos estado en el Centro Comercial de Bonaire, en Valencia, España. Hoy se llevaba acabo una Incursión EX. Cuando hemos llegado había mucha gente, no hemos podido contar la gente que había, pero 80 personas había mínimo. Cuando se ha abierto el huevo de la Incursión y a aparecido Mewtwo, todo el mundo ha empezado a chillar y a saltar de alegría, no veíamos a la gente así con Pokémon GO, desde hace mucho tiempo. La gente se ha intentado organizar por colores, pero al final ha sido imposible, al acabar de luchar contra Mewtwo, muchos lo capturaban a la primera, otros a la segunda, y a otros se les resistía, cada persona que acababa de capturar a su Mewtwo, chillaba: “YA LO TENGO, POR FIN”. Y verdaderamente ha estado muy bien, tanto el ambiente como la gente.

The raid took place from 19:00 to 20:00 and most of the folks got their for the early start. There was a lot of people, our reporter couldn’t count all of them but he estimates that at least 80 were present.

When the Raid Egg opened and Mewtwo appeared, the crowd went absolutely bananas and started screaming and jumping in joy. To quote our Spanish team:

“We haven’t seen people this excited for Pokemon GO  in a long time!”

People tried to organize using the “let’s group up by team color so we get more Pokeballs” strategy, but to no avail. The fight was predictably easy, as the overwhelming number of raiders made even Mewtwo crumble.

Some Trainers caught Mewtwo, some didn’t, but surprisingly the reaction of the lucky ones was almost the same: “Finally, OMG, finally!”

All in all, the atmosphere was amazing, the Spanish trainers are nuts in their own way and it was one of those truly great moments only Pokemon GO can create.
