Pokemon GO Tour: Kanto Ticket is available to buy from the shop but is it worth buying? There are a couple of things that you get for free but there are other aspects that are locked behind the paywall. In this Pokemon GO guide, we are going to look into whether or not the Tour: Kanto Ticket is worth paying for.
The Kanto tour is going to start on Saturday, February 20th, at 9 AM local time and will end on Saturday, February 20th, at 9 PM. So you get 12 hours to get different Pokemon from the Kanto region.
Pokemon GO Tour: Kanto Ticket Worth It?
The following is what you need to know about the Pokemon GO Tour: Kanto Ticket and what it has to offer as compared to not buying it.
Pokemon GO Tour: Kanto Ticket Features
The 150 non-mythical Pokemon of the Kanto region (generation 1) will be available to people that buy the ticket. Every one of them will also have a shiny variant so you have a chance of getting gen 1 shinies if you want to add them to your collection. There will be nine new shiny Pokemon including:
A Shiny Ditto is very rare as you need to catch a Shiny Pokemon in order to it to be a Shiny Ditto. We are not sure how this is going to be implemented in the game. It could be found in the wild or it could be a reward for completing a certain questline.
Trainers will also have access to the regional Pokemon no matter which region you are playing the game in. These regional Pokemon include:
- Mr Mime
The shiny variants of these Pokemon will also be available to trainers. This will be a good chance to complete your Pokedex if you do not have the luxury of traveling around the world to catch these regional Pokemon.
Players will have the chance to catch rare and un-common Pokemon such as:
Pokemon GO Tour: Kanto Ticket holders will get more Candy for catching Pokemon and there is a chance that this includes XL Candy as well. If you pre-purchase the Pokemon GO Tour: Kanto Ticket then you will also get access to the January and February Community Day Special Research stories.
What If You Do Not Buy The Ticket?
If you do not get the ticket then some Kanto region Pokemon will spawn in the wild and legendary raids will include Pokemon such as:
- Articuno (Hurricane)
- Zapdos (Thunder Shock)
- Moltres (Sky Attack)
- Mewtwo (Psystrike)
Even if you do not have the ticket, you will be able to take part in the event-exclusive timed research. The trading range will be increased to 40km. All trainers will be able to evolve the Kanto region start Pokemon and get the community day exclusive moveset mentioned as follows:
- Venusaur (Frenzy Plant)
- Blastoise (Hydro Cannon)
- Charizard (Blast Burn)
Looking at the pricing of $11.99 for 9 hours can be a bit high for some people keeping in mind that the Go Fest ticket was much cheaper per day as the event was 2 days long. If you are a pay to win player and are interested in getting all the shiny Pokemon then this might be a purchase worth making. But if you are a casual player that does not care about the shiny Pokemon or getting them all then the Pokemon GO Kanto Ticket might not be a feasible purchase for you.
