Veteran Box is the worst deal ever in Pokémon GO, It’s time for Niantic to get serious

Trainers, do you remember when Pokémon GO first introduced special boxes on December 25, 2016? Ah, those were the days. We got the Special, Great, and Ultra Boxes, each offering different items that had us pretty pumped. But fast forward to today, and it seems like Niantic has seriously dropped the ball. Case in point: the Veteran Box. Some say it’s the worst deal ever in Pokémon GO’s history, and we can’t help but agree.

Now, the in-game shop in Pokémon GO is nothing new; it’s packed with various items trainers can snag with their hard-earned PokéCoins. Sure, you can stock up on Potions, Revives, and Poké Balls just by spinning PokéStops and Gyms, but there are some shop-exclusive features too. Like many other mobile games, Pokémon GO does give you the option to purchase bundle packs containing a mix of consumables. These can give new players a bit of a boost or prepare seasoned trainers for an upcoming event.

So, what’s the deal about this so-called Veteran Box? Brace yourselves. It’s available for 750 PokéCoins, and what do you get? 50 Razz Berries, 50 Pinap Berries, and 50 Nanab Berries. Yep, that’s it. We’re scratching our heads too. It begs the question, is someone at Niantic just messing around, or do they genuinely think this is a good offer and people would get it? We know we won’t because we can get them even more for PokéStops and Gifts.

To add some context, let’s take a trip down memory lane and look at the first Pokémon GO boxes:

  • Special Box: 10 Great Balls, 2 Incubators, and 250 PokéCoins
  • Great Box: 10 Great Balls, 2 Incenses, 4 Incubators, and 550 PokéCoins
  • Ultra Box: 20 Ultra Balls, 25 Incenses, 6 Incubators, and 1500 PokéCoins

It’s clear Niantic needs to step up their game when it comes to these Special Boxes and bundles. It’s important to remember that we, the players are spending actual money for PokéCoins. So, how about giving us some real value in return?
