Those unfamiliar with EX Raids, their are one of the titles hardest challenges and are by invitation only. Trainers become eligible to receive an EX Raid Pass when they win a Raid Battle at a qualifying Gym. From now on, trainers will be able to see which Gyms can host an EX Raid through a new helpful tag that will be displayed when viewing a Gyms details. The EX Raids Passes state a given date and time for when the battle will take place and trainers will need to make sure they are there to be in for a chance of catching the Mythical Deoxys.

Trains will need to take advantage of every opportunity and maybe even some help from a fellow trainer or two. From now on, when trainers receive an EX Raid pass, trains will be able to invite one other friend to go with them helping to make the challenge a little bit more manageable. Trains should note though that these invites can only be sent to an Ultra Friend or Best Friend, so make sure to build up your friendship before sending the invite. This can be done by battling with them, sending Gifts or trading Pokémon.
