Box Analysis May 2019: Raid Passes Galore!

It appears that in light of Extraordinary Raid Week, Niantic has given us a great selection of boxes, including an Ultra Box featuring a whopping 20 Raid Passes. These are easily some of the best boxes as of late, and in this Box Analysis, we will go in-depth with just how good these boxes are.

Box Analysis

Items Special Great Ultra
Raid Passes 4 6 20
Egg Incubators 2
Super Incubators 3 4
Star Pieces 2 5
Lure Modules 4
Lucky Eggs 3
Incense 2
Ultra Balls
Total Price 480 780 1480

Analysis Special Great Ultra
Total Worth 800 1515 3302
Coins Saved Per Box 320 735 1822
Coins Saved from Incubators and Raid Passes 220 420 1320
% Saved 40% 48.5% 55.2%
% Saved from Incubators and Raid Passes 31.4% 35% 47.1%

As usual, Lucky Eggs and Incense are priced at 63 coins each, to give us a better picture of how these boxes worth compared to buying these items in bulk. Star Pieces are 50 a piece to reflect their bulk price as well.

At first glance, we can see that these boxes have some better % savings compared to boxes of the past, and there is a substantial increase in the number of raid passes in each box, especially notable in the Ultra Box. With the Adventure Box satisfying needs for Egg Incubators, it is nice to have boxes with a lot of raid passes. Making these boxes even better is the plethora of raid events that will be happening this month.

There is not much to say in this box analysis about each box individually, only that these are great boxes to restock your raid pass supply. For free to play players wondering how many coins it takes to get their hands on a box, we suggest you check out the Coin Hoarder’s Guide. Like usual, we are not sure when these boxes are going away, but boxes typically last until the end or start of a new event.

Adventure Box

The Adventure Box seems like it is here to stay, but it still gets its own place in the analysis! If you have not been following boxes closely and you are not sure what an Adventure Box is, it is aimed at players who want to ‘Adventure’ and focuses on egg hatching! Because of that, these boxes focus on an increased amount of incubators but feature no raid passes.

Items Quantity
Super Incubator 13
Star Piece 5
Egg Incubator 4
Lure Module 4

Analysis Adventure
Total Worth 3850
Coins Saved Per Box 2370
Coins Saved from Incubators 1720
% Saved 61.6%
% Saved from Incubators 53.75%

Overall from the Adventure Box Analysis, the % saved is amazing, and if you are itching for incubators, this box alone will let you hatch 51 eggs altogether, 12 in the normal and 39 in the supers. If you are not into raiding but enjoy hatching eggs, this box is the one for you.

That concludes this Box Analysis, and overall, these boxes are worth picking up at least one! What do you say, are you going to grab one?
