Pokemon Go Players Are Launching “Rogue” Go Fest Finale Boxes


The Pokemon Go Fest 2022 Finale event is finally here, but players can’t believe how “rip-off” the limited-time event boxes feel.

The global Pokemon Go Fest 2022 took place in June, followed by several city-specific events around the world. And while in-person festival attendees were pleased, the global event did not end up in favor of gamers.

In fact, the global Go Fest 2022 event has been hailed as one of the worst events Niantic has ever held. The lack of Shiny Pokemon and meaningful rewards made it pale in comparison to Kanto/Johto Tour events and previous Go Fests.

Now Niantic has one last ditch attempt to win over those who felt slighted by Go Fest. The Finale event taking place on August 27 has a generous helping of featured Pokemon, but players are already disappointed with the event’s limited-time boxes.

Fans Disappointed With Pokemon Go Fest Finale Boxes

A dedicated group of named Pokemon Go data miners pokeminers recently revealed the four exclusive Go Fest Finale boxes that will be in the Item Shop on the day of the event. These are the Event Box, the Raid Box, the Training Box and the Hatch Box.

But when JRE47 shared the boxes with the TheSilphRoad subreddit, players were unhappy with their offers.

The most glaring box seemed to be the Training Box which offered a Pokemon storage upgrade and an item storage upgrade as well as Pokeballs and five Lucky Eggs. Players were quick to tell others to save 150 Pokecoins by simply purchasing the storage and item upgrades on their own.

Another player claimed the Hatch Box was a “scam” since Niantic used it to offer a better deal on Super Incubators. Players could purchase 18 Super Incubators for 1500 coins, but the Hatch Box offers six Super and four Normal Incubators for 1180 coins.

Comments on JRE’s post were flooded with users stating that they would forward the boxes. With players already having to pay $10.99 for a ticket to the one-day event, they can’t be bothered to spend their hard-earned Pokecoins on these event boxes.

Hopefully players enjoy the event more than the global festival in June, but it all depends on the hands players receive on August 27th.
