New Round of EX Raid Passes: April 7/8 2018

Posted in

Trainers, earlier today, we brought you some more exciting news about Niantic’s future development plans and said that this week was certainly filled with exciting news. Well, it is far from over! A new wave of EX Raid passes has gone out, targeting an EX Raid on April 7th or 8th depending on your timezone!

PS: Please make sure to complete our EX Raid survey!

As we previously stated, EX Raid Pass distributions seem to become less and less curious, since a weekly pattern is now noticeable. We can certainly appreciate that as it means that it might be easier for people to [finally] put their hands on an EX Raid Pass, and potentially a Mewtwo! This wave is the fifth weekly EX Raid Pass distribution in a row, with only one minor exception!

Considering that it has been more than a month since we have seen weekly EX Raid Pass distributions, seeing trainers with two EX Raid passes is clearly becoming a trend (not for us however, sniff).

This is the sixth invitation wave after Niantic’s [more or less] recent acknowledgement that the invitation system should work differently now. Although a pattern is clearly drawing itself, we once again urge all of our readers to take part in our EX Raid survey and share it afterwards, especially to players who did not get an invitation.

A few early observations (very similar as the past few waves’ observations, which would explain that a pattern is clearly drawing itself):

  • Some players are reporting raiding today for the first time at the Gym where the raid is to take place;
  • The system, once again, appears to be using S2 L13 cells for the invitations, so we strongly suggest that you coordinate and trigger EX Raids accordingly;
  • Some players are yet still reporting raiding daily, hitting the proper gym and still not getting an invitation, but this has always been the case;
  • In case you can’t attend an EX raid, reach out to Niantic’s Customer support.

In any case, check out our Mewtwo raid guide: counters, weather, capture chances, IVs and CPs, power up your Tyranitars and be prepared.

Shoutout to the Hub man himself, Zeroghan, for delivering the news to us so quickly!

Zeroghan: Boon, you probably will never see this, but I LIED when I said I didn’t get an invite. Got mine muahahaha :P.
Boon: Zero, (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
