Niantic previously announced that players can start receiving EX Raid Passes for the EX Raids with Mewtwo starting September 25 at 1:00 p.m. PDT, but it looks like they’re being released now.
If you and your group beat Mewtwo in the EX Raid, not only will you encounter a Mewtwo with the exclusive move Shadow Ball – which hasn’t been available since Mewtwo was last available in EX Raids back in 2017 – but you also get a chance to encounter a Shiny Mewtwo according to Niantic’s original blog post.
You can get your own EX Raid pass by winning a Raid Battle at a qualifying Gym. You can check if the Gym is eligible to host EX Raids by taking a look at its details page. The pass you get will give you the date and time of the EX Raid. You can invite an Ultra Friend or a Best Friend to join you for the EX Raid.
Also, don’t forget about the special makeup Legendary Raid Hour for Mewtwo with the exclusive move Psystrike on October 8 from 6-7 p.m. local time.
Pokemon GO is also currently hosting the World Tourism Day event, where you can complete exclusive Research Tasks, trade Pokemon with 1/4 less Stardust cost and get twice the XP from spinning PokeStops you never visited before. You can also hatch region-exclusive Pokemon from 5 km Eggs found in their respective real-world locations, which includes the newly added Mime Jr. in 5 km Eggs in Europe. See our previous report for more details.
