Niantic have begun sending out the first EX raid pass invitations as the worldwide release of Mewtwo grows ever closer. Players have reported receiving invitations to take part in EX raids, with the first raid scheduled for TOMORROW.
Reddit user Broseph23 has provided the Pokemon GO community with the first screenshots of an in-game raid invitation. You can check out the invitation below (click each image for a larger version):
Interesting, the location of the EX raid invitation, Bellevue, Washington, is the location of where the first Moltres raid appeared, indicating that this is a definite test site used by Niantic. Broseph23 provided the following information on his EX raid pass on Reddit:
- Yesterday was the last (and first) time I had done a raid that that location. I cannot remember what it was, I did three raids in Bellevue yesterday so I can’t remember which was which. I had done raids since then. I am pretty sure whatever it was I did catch.
- For those in other time zones, this notice came just over 48 hours in advance.
- The pass popped up during normal game play. You can see it again when clicking on the pass in the items bag. It also shows up in your journal.
- The last raid is did before this invite was about 10-15 min prior. Raikou raid and it was caught.
- I have won 40 raids. I don’t know how many are legendary. Maybe 20?
We’ll post more information as soon as we get it.
