Pokemon Go To Make Up For Kanto Tour Issues With Bonus Event

Pokemon Go has revealed details about a bonus event it will hold to make up for technical issues during the Kanto Tour.

Pokemon Go is free to play, so when Niantic asks you to pay for some of its content, it needs to be good. Last month’s Kanto Tour was exactly that. For the $11.99 entry fee, trainers were almost given more to do than they could ever fit into the time allotted. That likely was the case for a lot of people. However, those who paid their $12 were left a little annoyed when it was revealed some trainers had managed to take part in the event for free.

The Kanto Tour event first went live in Australia and New Zealand. Shortly after that, some trainers started to reveal they were managing to access what it had to offer for free. Niantic quickly took action, apologizing for the mistake. It also announced that it would make up for the mistake via a future event for ticketholders in the future.

Niantic has now revealed when the bonus event will take place and what will be up for grabs. The unnamed event will kick off at 10 am local time this Friday, March 5, 2021. It will run until 10 am local time on Monday, April 5, 2021. During that time, trainers who bought a ticket to the Kanto Tour event will be able to participate in research with all of the below up for grabs.

  • 30 Ultra Balls
  • A Lure Module
  • A Poffin
  • A Super Incubator
  • A Lucky Egg
  • Three Silver Pinap Berries
  • A Star Piece
  • An Elite Fast TM
  • An Elite Charged TM
  • A Charged TM
  • A Fast TM
  • 100 Mew Candy

You will also be able to purchase three Remote Raid Passes from the in-game store at no extra cost.

The timed research trainers will need to complete to earn all of the above has not yet been revealed. Chances are you’ll just have to log in and find out this Friday when the event goes live. A month-long bonus event is a pretty decent makegood for the mistake made during the Kanto Tour. Providing no one manages to find their way into this one free of charge too, of course.
