Hi there Trainers!
So with a new Psychic Spectacular Event starting, the boxes available to purchase via the shop have been refreshed and wow have they… We are here to have a look and see if these are worth the coins (or not) or represent a saving on buying the items separately or not. Could these be some of the worst boxes ever?
Disclaimer: Please note that anything available for free by spinning a PokéStop does not have a value in my eyes….
You are being asked to part with 150 coins for this box. Now bearing in mind what I said in my disclaimer, the only item worth anything in this box is the one incense which is available for 40 coins as a standalone item. If you do not need balls, don’t bother. For 160 coins (an extra 10 coins) you can buy 4 incense instead if you need them.
This box represents poor value in my opinion for anyone with access to gyms or PokéStops.
|5× Ultra Ball
|20× Poké Ball
|10× Great Ball
Next step up for 780 coins this box is an improvement on the Bronze Box. The incubators and star piece are worth 1,050 coins so does at least represent a saving on the individual items with 5 (why….) Pinap Berries thrown in too. Lovely.
Personally I would rather the proportions of super incubators to normal incubator were reversed but what can you do. Go for this one if you need incubators but be aware that this is not the best deal on incubators based on what we’ve previously seen, so buy sparingly rather than using it to stock up.
|1× Super Incubator
|1× Star Piece
|5× Pinap Berry
Now then, this is the most expensive box released. Putting this into context, 1000 coins is the equivalent of £8 (more or less) or 20 days defending gyms, would you be happy spending £8 and receiving 360 coins (about £3.20) worth of items?
Again, if you have access to PokéStops I would give this a wide berth.
|25× Ultra Ball
|100× Great Ball
|2× Lucky Egg
This latest batch of boxes are either not up to scratch with previous offerings, or do not represent a saving on individual purchases or represent value for money in my opinion. Between opening gifts and spinning stops balls and a random 5 Pinaps can be earned very easily. Please think very carefully before considering the Catch or Bronze Box, the Hatch is OK in limited purchase but there has been and will be better offerings.
What do you think about the offerings, will you be buying any? Let us know in the comments!
Until next time trainers….. 🙂
