The world isn’t the only place where Pokémon can hide. Out there among the stars lies one powerful, outworldly Pokémon: Deoxys. And now, the “DNA Pokémon” is coming to EX Raids.
According to an announcement on the Pokémon GO Live blog, the mythical psychic-type will soon be available in EX Raids in its normal forme. Invitations are coming soon.
For those unfamiliar, EX Raids are a special kind of Raid battle. Only those who receive an invitation can participate in them. What determines if someone is worthy of an invitation is a mystery, but to become eligible at all, you have to win a Raid battle at a qualifying gym, according to Niantic.
The alien Pokémon is one of the more powerful creatures in the Pokémon universe. Battling one will no doubt prove a challenge. That’s why you can now bring a friend! Whenever someone received an invitation to an EX Raid, they can invite one friend to go with them. It’s limited to Ultra and Best Friends, so make sure you buddy up with them plenty before inviting them.
Good luck, trainers.
