a new wave of EX Raid invites has been sent out, scheduling a new EX Raid on December 25th, Christmas day! Trainers have reported various raiding times, but they all are using the same 45 minute window frame (eg. 18:00-18:45).

The selection criteria seems to be… weird again, targeting a mix of experienced and occasional raiders. We have no information on whether Delibird will be making an appearance for the raid, but we sincerely hope not.

Releasing Delibird via the EX Raid system would be basically be the same like having Grinch steal your presents for Christmas and tossing them in a furnace in front of you.

Let’s see how this raid turns out, but as we’re expecting a relatively soon announcement of the X-Mas Holiday Event, we expect that Mewtwo will stay as the EX Raid boss of choice.
