Niantic has announced its upcoming update that has everything to do with Raids. Interestingly, this is not like the conventional raids that "Pokemon GO" players usually do. According to Gamespot, players should have an invitation before they can join and participate in the raids.

Mostly, the game's consistency in other regions will also be observed.

Beginning September 6, Niantic will start giving away Passes to join the beta. Unfortunately, the developer has not revealed how long the beta test will be and who are eligible to get the special Pass. As a teaser, the Legendary Pokemon Mewtwo can only be acquired through the EX Raids.

Meanwhile, players can only get an invitation provided, they recently completed a Raid in a specific location. Niantic, on the other hand, assured fans that an advance warning will be sent out before any EX Raid Battle begins. This warning will serve as a sign that players will need to coordinate with local trainers for the invite.
