Niantic is continuing to put a lot of effort in Pokemon GO and judging from user numbers and revenue it is continuing to pay off. The latest news is that Mythical Pokemon Deoxys from the Hoenn region will arrive for EX Raid Battles. The company says that while the Pokemon can prove a difficulty in battles, you get an EX Raid Pass, allowing you to bring a friend along. Here’s some details about Deoxys from the Pokemon GO blog:
“This Psychic-type Mythical Pokémon will be available to challenge in its Normal Forme beginning with the next cycle of EX Raid invitations.”
“Are you new to EX Raids? You can become eligible to receive an EX Raid Pass when you win a Raid Battle at a qualifying Gym. And from now on, you’ll be able to see which Gyms can host an EX Raid through a handy tag when you look at the Gym details. EX Raid Passes will give you the date and time when you’ll be able to challenge Deoxys, so mark your calendar and prepare your Pokémon for an epic battle!
Battling Deoxys will be a difficult challenge that requires Trainers to take advantage of every opportunity—and maybe get a little help from a friend! From now on, when you receive an EX Raid Pass, you will be able to invite one friend to go with you! Keep in mind that invites can only be sent to an Ultra Friend or Best Friend, so don’t forget to battle with friends, send Gifts, and trade Pokémon to build up your Friendship level.”
