Soon a dangerous precedent could be created for Pokémon GO: a global event that can only be accessed via payment. The monetization in the mobile title of Niantic Labs until now had not been too invasive.
We know very well that Pokémon GO allows you to play without spending money; even when Pokémon GO Safari Zone is held in the most remote areas of the globe, the content released at that time will become available to everyone at a distance or a few hours or a few weeks. But with the event, A Colossal DiscoveryNiantic Labs could change the cards in tables, if what was discovered by the dataminer is true: the event will be held on November 2nd, 2019, and to participate it will be mandatory to buy a ticket in the game store. For a fee.
In a nutshell, those who cannot afford the purchase of the special Pokémon GO ticket, called the Global Event Ticket, will lose the opportunity to participate in the event and capture Regigigas, according to information leaked so far. Please note that the event can be attended from anywhere from 11:00 to 19:00 (local GMT +2) on November 2, 2019. We hope that Niantic Labs will think again, or that in some way organize a second free event.
