Pokemon Go Ex Raid Invitations Sharing System Q&A

Update 9/28/2018: Trainers, the Ex Raid invitations scheduled on October 1 and October 2 for some Trainers are temporary canceled. Niantic is investigating the case and they are working on fixing the error.

They didn’t reveal when the next, new Ex Raid wave will go live, but we expect to see it soon.

Previous story: Trainers, the new Ex Raid sharing system was introduced with the update v0.119.1 and with the first Deoxys’ Ex Raid invitations players started to share their Ex Passes with their friends. But how does this system actually works?

The very first Deoxys’ Ex Raid passes went live today (September 27) and the first Ex Raid Battle is going live on October 1 and October 2 (now canceled and waiting on a new wave).

Just like previously, not all Trainers got an Ex Pass, but with the new sharing feature, a player can now invite other players to join him/her and ‘destroy’ Deoxys together. Now, a lot of Trainers are curious to know how this system works, so I’ve decided to dig a little bit deeper and gather some info on this matter.

Here is what I’ve got so far and if you care to add something else, you’re more than welcome to share it in the comments section below and I will make sure to update it.
