Pokemon Go Announces Two New Events with Only One $1 Ticket, Changes are Coming

Trainers, Niantic and Pokemon Go started this year with so many tickets and after one month in 2024, now in the second, we already have a lot of paid event tickets, The community did not turn their ears off to this and of course, there are so many complaints.
