Pokemon Go: How to Get a Making a Splash Ticket
You have the option to purchase a premium ticket for Magikarp Community Day.
The next Pokemon Go Community Day event will take place on August 8, 2020 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. local time. During that time, the Water-type Pokemon Magikarp will appear more often than normal in the wild. (To see everything else that’s going on, check out our previous coverage).
For this month’s Community Day event, you have the option (but not the requirement) to purchase a ticket that will give you access to a Special Research storyline called “Making a Splash.” The ticket costs $0.99, and it can only be purchased with real money. That is, it can't be purchased with PokeCoins.
If you purchase a ticket, you’ll receive the first task in this storyline once Community Day actually begins.
While August’s Community Day event is still a few days away, you can already purchase the Making a Splash ticket if you know you’ll be playing on that day. Here’s how!
Tap the Poke Ball while viewing the in-game map.
Tap the “Making a Splash Ticket" in the "Global Events" section.
Now, tap “Buy” to finish the purchase on your device.
Remember that once you purchase the ticket, you have to login to Pokemon Go at some point between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. on August 8 to actually receive the Special Research.
