I have almost no sponsored gyms around me…all of the Starbucks and sprint stores are stops and not gyms. I raid quite a bit in parks and haven’t received any invites. I don’t trust niantic at this point to do anything that makes sense.
I don’t have a problem with ho oh being an EX boss because he kind of created entei, suicune and raikou, so that makes him a special legendary. I just worry that it will further limit my chances at a mewtwo which is kind of the major legendary.
