Pokémon GO and the Kanto Tour Problems: Rewards for Ticket Buyers

Pokémon GO and the Kanto Tour Problems

The event dedicated to the Kanto Tour in Pokémon GO was a success among the players of the mobile title, but some of them did not like the presence of a bug that effectively canceled the benefits of "paying" users.

As in most of the timed events of the game for tablets and smartphones, the Kanto Tour also featured the possibility of purchasing a virtual ticket to obtain benefits. Unfortunately, however, for a limited period of time it was possible for all players to bypass the purchase and still access the paid content, making the purchase of the content useless by fans. To be forgiven, therefore, the developers have confirmed on the official social channels that a new wave of free content will soon arrive for them and that, this time, there will be no way to get them without having purchased the virtual ticket. We don't know what this collection of rewards will consist of, but Niantic is likely to want to do what it can to make sure players don't regret purchasing the Kanto Tour add-on.

Waiting to find out when access will be available to these free contents, we remind you that on our pages you will find the list of the exclusive creatures of the Red and Green versions available with the Kanto Tour in Pokémon GO.





Pokemon GO Kanto Tour: Schedule, Challenges, Masterwork Research, Shiny Mew And More

Pokemon GO’s season of celebration comes to a kind of crescendo this weekend with the Kanto Tour, a ticketed event that feels like it’s somewhere halfway between Pokemon GO Fest and one of those paid special research events. There’s a lot going on, but the main thrust is that this is an ode to the original Pokemon Red and Green games—Blue in the West, of course. The event runs from 9:00 AM-9:00 PM local time


To start with, you’ll need to choose which version to buy, just like in the mainline games. There are two on offer: Red and Green, each of which will come with incense that attracts exclusive creatures. Read more here, but the important thing is that you’ll need a friend, or stranger, with the opposite version in order to complete the event.


Collections: The entire event is themed around the new collection challenges, with a whopping 10 collection challenges available to all ticket holders. These come in two flavors—the first five are themed around methods of acquiring critters, and they are:

  • Red (Trade) or Red (Incense)
  • Green (Trade) or Green (Incense)
  • Raid
  • Research
  • Evolve
  • After that, the next five are themed around different areas from the original games:

  • Pallet Town
  • Pewter City
  • Cerulean City
  • Fuchsia City
  • Pokémon League
  • All challenges will remain available until February 28, 7:59 PM.


    Schedule: Just like with GO Fest, spawns and incense attracted Pokemon will shift by the hour, with each hour themed around a different area from the games. Here’s the full schedule:

  • 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.: Pallet Town
  • 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.: Pewter City
  • 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.: Cerulean City
  • 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.: Fuchsia City
  • 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.: Pokémon League
  • 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.: Pallet Town
  • 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.: Pewter City
  • 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.: Cerulean City
  • 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.: Fuchsia City
  • 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.: Pokémon League
  • 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.: Pokémon from all previous hours
  • Research: There’s an interesting twist here, because we’ve got two research lines. The first is the standard event research, which we’ll know more about soon. After that, however, you’ll get access to a special “Masterwork Research”, which is meant to be much tougher, requiring you to collect all Kanto creatures, reach level 40, catch 30 Pokemon of each type, spin 151 unique Pokestops and walk 151 km. After you’re finished, you get a shiny Mew.


    And that’s about the size of it. There will be more to know as the day goes on, but until then, get ready to walk.
