New Round of EX Raid Passes – March 23/24

Posted in


This is not a drill, a new wave of EX Raid passes has gone out, targeting an EX Raid on March 23rd or 24th! (depending on your timezone) 

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

Although this wave isn’t as curious as the previous ones for March 10th, as highlighted in our previous article published less than a week ago, March 9th: New round of EX Raid passes for March 17th – Two days in a row!; there is still a lot to analyze to better understand the new distribution pattern.

Some (like me), like the image shows below, have the unfortunate situation of having two passes in their inventory:

This is the fourth invitation wave after Niantic’s recent acknowledgement that the invitation system should work differently now. Therefore, 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 (similar as the past few waves, which are starting to draw a clearer distribution pattern):

  • More and more players are reporting raiding today for the first time at the Gym where the raid is to take place, and some are even reporting raiding there in the past two hours;
  • The system once again seems to be using S2 L13 cells for the invitations. We have received more proofs than we had for the past few waves, so if that proves to be the case, we could potentially see more EX Raids in a given area than we used to see before the last 4 waves;
  • Although a lot of players are still reporting raiding daily, hitting the proper gym and still not getting an invitation; some reports seem to indicate that this wave may have hit more players who had never received an EX Raid pass before today;
  • 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.
