Pokémon GO – No Match for Magmar Special Research Guide

All tasks and rewards, is it worth it?

by Kyle Hanson


It seems like just last week we were prepping for Electabuzz Community Day and now it’s already time for another one. Of course, that was last week and this week it’s Magmar’s time to shine. Players all around the world will see increased Magmar spawns starting Saturday, November 21st at 11am your local time. You’ll have the usual time to catch them, and once again there’s a premium Special Research ticket you can buy. But is it worth it? Here’s our No Match for Magmar Special Research guide, including all tasks and rewards.

Is the No Match for Magmar Ticket Worth Buying?

UPDATE: Below are all the tasks and rewards, showing you what you’ll get for buying the ticket. As I describe below, it matches up well with the Electabuzz ticket. If you want more Magmar candy, good shiny chances, and more bonuses then the No Match for Magmar ticket is worth it.

Original Text: The No Match for Magmar ticket costs just $0.99, or your local equivalent. We’re still waiting for the full list of rewards to be revealed, but based on previous Community Days, especially Electabuzz’s from last week, it’s probably worth buying if you’re going to participate in the event and want more Magmar.

Magmar will be spawning all over the place during the event hours, so you’ll certainly catch a lot. And many of them will hopefully be shiny. But the No Match for Magmar Special Research will give you many more and with higher shiny odds. Also, if you ever use Incense, Poffins, or Rocket Radars then you’ll be happy with the rewards here. And if you need more Magmar candy then it’s a big boost as well, with previous tickets offering dozens of extra candy for evolutions and power ups.

Of course, whether the No Match for Magmar ticket is worth it or not comes down to your personal situation. However, at such a low price and with more than a dollar’s worth of rewards it does seem worth buying for most players. You’ll want to be following through on the quest during Community Day though, so make sure your calendar is open before hitting the purchase button.
