Pokemon Go Update: New Microtransactions Add Special, Great & Ultra Boxes

There is a new Pokemon Go update wherein the game has new Holiday Boxes microtransactions for its latest post-Christmas and holiday announcement.

Niantic Labs has new offers for its best-selling game Pokemon Go which will run throughout the period of December 25, 2016 to the afternoon of January 3, 2017 Pacific Standard Time (PST). Different gift boxes will be ready for purchase. Each box has items which are bundled together for a lesser price.

Holiday Box Microtransactions

The first set of boxes are the Special, Great, and Ultra Boxes. These will be available until December 30, 2017 PST.  The Special Box has 10 Great Balls and two Egg Incubators for 250 PokeCoins. The Great Box will have 20 Great Balls, two Incenses, and four Egg Incubators for a price of 550 PokeCoins. Meanwhile, the Ultra Box will have 20 Ultra Balls, 25 Incenses, and 6 Egg Incubators for 1,500 PokeCoins worth.

The next set of boxes are composed of the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Boxes. These will be available from December 31, 2016 to January 3, 2017 PST. The Bronze, Silver, and Gold Boxes will offer Incenses, Lucky Eggs, Lure Modules, and either Poke Balls or Great Balls.

Other Special Events

Niantic Lab has also added the update on giving more single-use egg incubators to hatch more new Pokemon such as Pichu, Igglybuff, Magby, Elekid, Togepi, Cleffa and Smoochum which will run from December 25, 2016, to January 3, 2017 PST. This is great since hatching eggs is time consuming.

The company also announced that starting from December 30, 2016 through January 8, 2017 PST, players will get to see higher spawn rates of the first partner Pokemon and their Evolution counterparts. You will find Pokemon in the likes of Charmander, Charmeleon, Charizard, Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, Venusaur, Squirtle, Blastoise and Wartortle. Lure Modules will also last for 60 minutes instead of just 30 minutes.

If you have been saving up your PokeCoins for a good exchange, you should spend them now with these new and great items. Seize the day because this is only for a limited time offer. And just for your reference, 100 PokeCoins are equivalent to $0.99, 550 PokeCoins are equivalent to $4.99 and 1,200 PokeCoins equate to $9.99.

Pokemon Go is available on iOS and Android devices.
