As you all know, Niantic announced that they would be changing the EX system to make it better/easier for people to use.
In this last EX wave, I got an EX pass and this is what they’ve changed (so far)
The notice time: We now have a week to prepare and sort out our stuff
Minor design issues: The pass has a little bit more colour, and things like that.
I will report on Friday if anything has actually changed in the EX battling system.
Note: it appears that Niantic are going back mainly to sponsored gyms, but they’re still at non-sponsored As Well.
