Gift Boxes – Pokemon GO
To help Pokemon trainers get into the festive season, Niantic has thrown up a number of gift boxes that can be bought in the game. Available from Dec. 25 to Jan. 3, 2017, these boxes can be bought with Poke Coins that players can earn in-game, or buy with real-life cash.
There are two different waves of gift boxes coming in this period of time, too. The first set is Special, Great, and Ultra boxes, which are available now until Dec. 30. Bronze, Silver, and Gold boxes will then be available from Dec. 31, until Jan. 3, 2017.
Each of these gift boxes costs a different amount and has a bunch of handy items for your Pokemon adventure. The contents of each box is as follows:
- Special Box: 10 Great Balls and 2 Egg Incubators
- Great Box: 20 Great Balls, 2 Incense, and 4 Egg Incubators
- Ultra Box: 20 Ultra Balls, 25 Incense, and 6 Egg Incubators.
If you’re looking at picking up one of these gift boxes while they’re around, they’ll set you back 250, 500, and 1500 PokeCoins, respectively.
Exact contents of the Bronze, Silver, and Gold gift boxes have yet to be confirmed as of yet, however, Niantic has confirmed you can expect to find Incense, Lure Modules, Lucky Eggs, Poke Balls, and Great Balls.
If you don’t have enough Poke Coins to afford any of the gift boxes, try and get some of your Pokemon in a Gym and hold it for a day. You’ll earn a small number of coins and some Stardust each day.
