How many raids needed for an EX pass?
Hi a new round of EX raid passes went out this morning. I got one (not my first). I wanted to ask others how many raids they did to get their pass? For me, it was 5 raids at a Gold gym. In past cycles I did as many as 10-15 raids the week before the passes went out. Thanks!
We have 2 sets of 2 ex gyms (one park with 2 gyms at each end that are in seperate cells) that trigger very reliably, we all make sure to hit both open gyms at least once each week and almost no one misses out.
Only need to raid once. I would suggest hitting 2 or 3 ex eligable gyms per cycle though.
As long as a certain number of raids are done at the EX Eligible Gym in a specific time period (Offhand I don't remember if it's absolute number of raids or if higher level raids count for more - I think that higher level raids count more than lower levels, but I might be remembering theorizing and thinking it was proven fact), an EX Raid will spawn. And as long as you have done 1 raid in that time period, you may get a pass.
Almost every EX Raid pass I've gotten were from Gyms that I did 1 raid at - one of my first EX Raids was at a Gym I did 1 raid at, like other posters. First day I had spun the Gym, first Raid at the gym, haven't been back to it since the EX Raid because it's well out of my way.
The EX Raid I've got for today is for a Krilia raid I did at the Gym. That was the only raid I did at the Gym in the time period. So all you have to do is 1 raid at the gym in the right time period and you can get an EX Raid pass there.
