Pokemon GO: Deoxys To Replace Mewtwo in EX Raids

On the official site of the famous game Pokemon GO, Niantic announced that the Mythical Pokemon Deoxys would replace Mewtwo in EX raids. Also, the developers also informed that Deoxys’ Normal Forme, which is one of the four forms of the character, will only be available via EX Raids, an event that requires an invitation to be played.

With the last Pokemon GO update, gamers can send an EX Raids invitation to one friend in their friend lists but only if he/she achieved Ultra Friend status or higher.

EX Raids in Pokemon GO is a controversial event

EX Raids are elite battles that give those invited gamers the opportunity to catch a powerful Pokemon at a specified moment, at a sponsored Gym location.

Since its emergence in Pokemon GO, EX Raids has been very controversial with some of the game’s fans showing disappointment. EX Raid changed eligibility criteria, and that hasn’t been received well by the players.

Niantic even apologized for any inconveniences, but they did not change much to tackle the gamers’ frustration.

However, those players who participate in raid battles in parks or at the promoted Gyms are more likely to be invited. Also, those who achieved a gold badge in one of the mentioned locations are increasing their chances to get an invitation.

(PDT). So prepare yourself, and don’t miss your opportunity to encounter this powerful Pokemon before it disappears,” reads the official announcement posted by Niantic.

This message is confirming the recent news that Deoxys will replace Mewtwo in EX Raids.
