Controversial perhaps, Niantic have been selling tickets for Pokémon Go’s latest event. Until this point, events in Pokémon Go have been fairly straightforward and open. You can either get a EX Raid Pass, which allows you to go for a much rarer Pokémon. The first was Mewtwo, where EX Raids were the only way to get the hard hitting Psychic legendary. There have also been Pokémon Go Fests, which is where inspiration for these paid events come from. Here are the facts of the event.
This week saw the arrival of a new mechanic to Pokémon Go; the introduction of Team Rocket. Well, more specifically, Team GO Rocket. These criminals have been capturing Shadow Pokémon, using them for their nefarious schemes and are attacking players. Now you can go and fight some Rocket Grunts yourself, becoming the hero you had always wanted to be. Well, sort of… I think we need to have a chat, Niantic.
