Oh, lol, the folks at Pokémon Go seem pretty funny right now and also very profit-oriented at the same time. At least that’s the conclusion that Pokémon Go fans have come to, When you look at the recently announced prices for the Pokémon Go Fest 2022 in Berlin. Not only is a minimum of €24.99 due for one-day access to the event site at Pritzergarten in Berlin. You also get an early access option for €32.13 to get to the site two hours in advance. After that you can still buy two additional tickets with rewards of €10.06 each. After all, they are active throughout the event, i.e. from 1 to 3 July 2022 and not only at Britzer Garten. In total, you can slap a hefty €52.25 at the Niantic table. Oh… plus about 15 euros if you still want a Pokémon Go Fest ticket online June 2022…

So, first of all: whether or not you want to go to the event, whether you want a ticket or not, whether you want the add-ons or not, these are all decisions you have to make.
You don’t have to do anything, but you can do everything.
Here’s an overview of what the two ticket options for the Pokémon Go Fest in Berlin include.

Ha, since we are in ‘stop’, shall we add another ‘stop’?
Therefore, there are two ticket options, each valid for one day for the specified duration. Then there are the so-called add-ons, which will take effect from July 1 to July 3, 2022.
- Addition for raid lovers (+ € 10.06): With this add-on, you’ll receive up to 12 extra gym raid cards per day, 5,000 extra experience points after each successful Raid battle, 6 extra candies, and 3 extra XL candies for catching Level 5 Raid Battles Pokémon.
- In addition to the breeders (+ € 10.06): With this addition, eggs will hatch four times faster (cannot be stacked with similar bonuses) and you will get twice experience points, twice candy and twice Stardust for hatching eggs.
These are the “Pay2Win Options” that appear because you then earn more XP or candy under certain conditions. But the effects aren’t really stark, and it can be a bit expensive for that. Or, along with an admission ticket to the Pokémon Go Fest in Berlin?
Of course, people at Niantic expect many players from other cities or even other countries who want to participate in Pokémon Go Fest. Says: Many coaches already spend money on travel and possibly accommodation. It sounds silly now, but does it add up to €25+ – or even the whole package for €52.25 – when you consider that a visit to a museum or culturally similar activities for a weekend can add up to a lot of money quickly and easily? What do you think of the ticket prices for Pokémon Go Fest in Berlin in early July (by the way, not to be confused with Pokémon Go Fest 2022 online in June 2022!).
