Pokémon Go trainers interested in Mewtwo Raids should start searching for a nearby Sprint store. A batch of EX Raid invites were sent to U.S. players Wednesday morning, announcing Metwo Raids in local Sprint store locations.
Previously, EX Raids invite have focused on large public spaces, like parks in major cities or open pavilions. But this round of EX Raid invites takes place in local Sprint stores, meaning that EX Raids may soon expand to smaller areas or national chains. Niantic is still demoing the feature for now before inviting more players to try them out, which means earning an invite to a Mewtwo EX Raid is still rare, even if there will be ones across the U.S.
The upcoming Mewtwo EX Raids are happening across the U.S. on Friday, Sept. 15, from 6pm to 7pm at local time. Mewtwo raids have been steadily growing in the U.S. as well, with Forbes reporting that EX Raid invites have already reached San Francisco, Bellevue in Washington, and New York City. While receiving an invitation to an EX Raid is still rare, they may become more common as Niantic continues to roll invites out.
