Trainers, listen up! If you’ve been stressing about completing the lengthy Timed Investigation to snag that second Master Ball in Pokémon GO, we’ve got good news for you, there’s another way.
Timed Investigations in Pokémon GO are a marathon, not a sprint. The most desirable rewards in the game are only attainable through the completion of these challenges, which are available for a limited time. The current Timed Investigation, focused on the Master Ball, is available throughout the Pokémon GO: Adventures Abound event. If you manage to complete it by Tuesday, November 21, 2023, at 8:00 p.m. local time, you’ll be rewarded with a Master Ball, the pinnacle of Poké Ball technology. This powerful item guarantees a successful catch, whether you’re encountering Pokémon in the wild, through Lure Modules, after Raid Battles, or using your Daily Adventure Incense.
Let’s be real, this Timed Research is a bear. It’s arguably the most challenging one Pokémon GO has introduced thus far. But if you’re worried about not completing it in time, Niantic has thrown us a lifeline.
In their official announcement, Niantic and Pokémon GO have stated that Trainers who can’t complete the Master Ball Timed Investigation by the deadline will have the option to purchase a special ticket. And yes, this ticket will award you a Master Ball.
Here’s the exact wording from the announcement for clarity:
“For Trainers who are unable to complete Timed Investigation: Master Ball by November 21, 2023, a Special Research ticket that awards a Master Ball will be available to purchase.”
So, where do you stand, Trainers? Are you close to completing the Master Ball Timed Investigation? Would you consider purchasing the Master Ball via ticket if you can’t wrap it up in time? Share your thoughts and game strategies in the comments below.
