Ex Raid Preparation


#21

Yes, I got one for next Saturday, let me see if the ex gym will have any raid until Saturday


#22

Yes :smiley:. Once I wasnt able to battle this gym near me for a week :poop:!


#23

Usually ex raid invite is sent out one week prior, you Cannot battle the gym until ex raid for entire week?


#24

Yes.


#25

No raids should pop up till ex raid.


#26

No gym battle AND raid for one week prior to ex raid


#27

You can battle the gym. Just no raids will occur.


#28

@5GodLink knows :star_struck:


#29

So from the date of ex invite to the date of ex raid, no raid happen in the gym


#30

Yup, bingo. No raids from invitation date to Mewtwo raid date. You’ll see raids pop back up right after, even possibly an hour or two after.


#31

Good to know, if I keep seeing no raid in a gym, that’s high possibility that it will have ex raid later in the week


#32

You’ll need to keep an eye out every hour goodluck.


#33

Thanks, I’m not worry about battling it, catching still make me a bit nervous although I have several already


#34

Even during the Articuno and Zapdos day EX gyms where passes were distributed did not have raids.


#35

Noticed this too. This was so the passes wouldn’t glitch.


#36

Ya, notice this too


#37

Would sum it up
-be there early, at least 15 minutes before so that you can go into your correct group
-no need for getting the gym, catchrate of 6 isnt anything difficult especially with ultra friend shennanigans
-goes down easily, just use a couple of TTars/Gengar


#38

why would you want the gym?
mewtwo catchrate is that high that you will always catch it


#39

Not always

Plus rather 9 balls than 7🤷🏾‍♂️
