Another Community Day is coming up in Pokémon GO, this time featuring Electabuzz. Acting as the first in a double featured month of Community Days, this one looks to be a great event for anyone who wants a powerful electric attacker. Everything kicks off on Sunday, November 15th at 11am your local time and will conclude at 5pm. During the Community Day hours you’ll be able to catch a ton of Electabuzz, with the chance of getting a few shiny versions. Of course, there’s more to do though, especially if you buy the Electric for Electabuzz ticket. So we’re here to break down the Special Research, which starts with buying the Electric for Electabuzz ticket in the shop. Is it worth it? How do you complete it, and what do you get?
Is the Electric for Electabuzz Ticket Worth Buying?
UPDATE: See full rewards below. For those looking for lots of candy and chances at a shiny Electabuzz it likely is worth the price.
Original Text: The ticket has just went live on the Pokémon GO shop so all players can pick one up for $0.99, depending on your local currency. These tickets have become a big part of Pokémon GO Community Day events, but many players wonder if they’re worth buying every month. For this one, the answer will really depend on how much you’ve been playing the game and for how long.
Electabuzz isn’t the rarest Pokémon in the game, and you may have already caught plenty. We’ll be breaking down the rewards of the ticket below, once they are made public by Niantic, but for now we can speculate on what you’ll receive and if it’s worth the dollar. Honestly, if you play a lot of Pokémon GO then it likely is because the rewards almost always amount to more than the price.
Previous Community Day tickets have rewarded players with Poffins and Incense, all of which are worth more than $1 if you use those items regularly. And if you want to evolve and power up some high IV Electabuzz then you’ll want the extra candy you get. Previous tickets gave players dozens of Candy, thousands of XP and Stardust, and many other useful items. So, is the Electric for Electabuzz ticket worth it? For most players, it likely will be, especially if you’ll be playing a lot during the event. If you don’t have the dollar to spare then you’ll be missing out on some useful items and a lot of extra Electabuzz candy, so ask yourself if that feels worth $1.
