Previous Story: Trainers, a new special event called “A Colossal Discovery” is coming on November 2. This event will bring new cool bonuses and most likely Regigigas as a special surprise and I’m really sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this will be a paid event.
The “A Colossal Discovery” special event will go live on November 2 from 11 AM to 7 PM local time and players who want to be part of the event will need to have a Ticket. Most of us thought that this will be a free event, but unfortunately, players who want to participate will have to buy a ticket.
The prices for the new Trainer Box, Beginner Box and the Ticket for the “A Colossal Discovery” special event are now listed on Google Play Store and iTunes:
- Trainer Box – $0.99
- Beginner Box – $0.99
- Ticket for the special event “A Colossal Discovery” – $7.99
This will be a direct payment, which means that players can’t spend PokeCoins if they want to purchase the Ticket or the Boxes.
