As usual, we had the normal distribution of EX Raid Passes at the beginning of the week. Those Passes are for February 8, 2018. As usual, the distribution of Passes caused quite an uproar of EX Outrage.
Then, out of the blue, another wave of Passes were given out. The Raid took place yesterday, almost like it was meant for compensation for the terrible system.
While we are on the topic of EX Raids, we are working on a major article about EX Raids as an appeal to Niantic. Also, the next wave of EX Raid Passes is expected to be given out in the next 24 to 48 hours.
2. The documentary trailer
The Pokémon Company published a new trailer for Pokémon GO on their YouTube channel this week. The trailer, which is in the style of a documentary and narrated by Stephen Fry, is incredibly popular. It has been viewed over two million times so far.
Interestingly, the trailer features Masquerain. Masquerain is an unreleased Pokémon from Generation 3. Could this be a sign of more Pokémon to come in the upcoming days?
