Many of us wondered what the experience for non-ticket holders during the Pokémon GO Fest 2023: Global day one, and now, we have the answer.
In a recent post on Reddit, a fellow Trainer explained in detail their experience as a non-ticket holder during the Pokémon GO Fest 2023: Global event, and it really is not what we all thought. First off, it was limited in terms of Pokémon that are spawning in the wild, but it was not that bad.
Due to limited mobility and energy, the Trainer chose a relaxed gameplay, as opposed to a “hectic” one. As we all know, non-ticket Trainers did not have any Timed Researches or Collection Challenges that were part of the event, so all they got was spawns. When talking about spawns, this Trainer encountered region-specific Pokémon and Special Costume Pikachu.
Incense spawns were regular for non-ticket holders, and they were not boosted that much, as everyone said. Certain spawns like Unown weren’t available from Incense, and Carbink didn’t spawn as well. This Pokémon was only available in Raids and Research tasks. As for Shiny Pokémon, the chance of encountering them was okay.
Overall, the experience for non-ticket holders was good, but it could be limited due to the bonuses that ticket holders have.
