Your finest guess on getting one other one is to coordinate with a neighborhood group. The Silph Road subreddit has put collectively a map that can assist you to discover the closest discord group to your space. These servers will usually have an EX Raid channel, in addition to different channels, akin to one for ditto recognizing. I solely discovered about this map within the final two days, though I have been on two completely different discord teams in as many months (one in CA and one in PA).
However, we additionally know a few of the guidelines by which Niantic makes use of to present out EX Raid passes, however there’s nonetheless some guess work. Niantic themselves have mentioned that battling and raiding at “sponsored gyms and gyms in parks” in addition to having a excessive raid frequency and excessive gymnasium badge rating will improve your probabilities of getting an invitation. How a lot this impacts your odds, we nonetheless do not know.
What we do know:
- Head over to Pokemon Go Map dot information and click on the settings within the high proper, visible tab, and allow the extent 12 S2 cell overlay (though one supply I discovered mentioned its stage 13 cells, however all others agree that it is stage 12).
- Only one gymnasium inside every of those “super cells” could be EX-eligible in every “wave” of invitations.
- This website has some details about waves. It doesn’t seem like common, however it’s roughly as soon as per week with a rotating day-of-week.
- Gym should be situated in a park (there’s an overlay for this too, however transferring and zooming the map causes quite a lot of requests and you will get timed out). The customary map view is often correct sufficient.
- You should take part in a raid at an EX-eligible gymnasium
- That gymnasium should have a sure variety of raid individuals.
- It nonetheless is not clear what number of or over what time interval. The finest guess is “about 20” however it does not have to be the identical raid occasion: a number of teams can raid individually and it nonetheless counts. One supply lists as little as 14 distinctive gamers.
- The location of the EX Raid can be on the gymnasium that made you eligible to obtain the go for and for a knowledge and time 7 to 10 days sooner or later.
Even in any case of this, not all trainers that take part in a raid at an EX-eligible gymnasium will obtain a EX Raid go. The statistics work being performed on the affect of gymnasium badges and so forth does not but have sufficient information, and that information assortment could also be flawed (as individuals who don’t obtain an invitation are much less more likely to report).
Different methods are round, however the one which is smart to me is to only raid each gymnasium inside a given “super cell” at the least as soon as. However, coordinating together with your native group can be vital. They will seemingly already know which gyms could be EX eligible and have a method for raiding efficiently.
One attention-grabbing aspect observe: for those who ever get a shiny raid boss, the catch fee is 100%. Toss a pinap at it and throw clear; straightforward 6 candies.
