Exclusive Raid Invitations
Exclusive Raid Invitations

Trainers,a new wave of EX Raid passes has gone out, targeting an EX Raid on March 30th or 31st! (depending on your timezone)!

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

EX Raid Pass distribution are becoming less and less curious, which we like since this means that a pattern is now noticeable which 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 fourth weekly EX Raid Pass distribution in a row, with minor exceptions and fluctuations!


Considering that it has been more or less a month since we have seen weekly EX Raid Pass distributions, more and more people are unfortunate enough to have two passes in their inventory.

This is the fifth invitation wave after Niantic’s recent acknowledgement that the invitation system should work differently now. Although a clear pattern is 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 (similar as the past few waves’ observations, which would explain that a pattern is drawing itself):

  • 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 preceding the distribution;
  • The system once again seems to be using S2 L13 cells for the invitations. We are receiving even more proofs than we had for the past few waves, which we are very happy about;
  • A lot of players are 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.

Huge shoutout to @AeonXer ( Michal ) and @CachAndyQuire for confirming both dates on Discord.
