Pokemon Go Players Can Now Buy Event Tickets for Other Players
Players can purchase multiple gift tickets per day.
Pokemon Go now allows players to purchase premium event tickets for other players.
Players can purchase tickets for any in-game friend that they have reached at least the “Great Friend” friendship level with, so long as that friend doesn't already have the same ticket in their inventory and they haven't already received the ticket from another player. The “Great Friend” friendship level is represented by having two full friendship hearts out of the four possible friendship hearts. In other words, so long as you have at least two friendship hearts with a Pokemon Go player, you can buy them premium event tickets.
To purchase a ticket for another player, you can tap on the ticket in the in-game item shop and then tap the “Gift” button, rather than the “Buy” button. From there, you can select the friend you want to purchase the ticket for and complete the purchase on your device. You can view step-by-step instructions and images for this process in our guide.
Players can purchase up to 20 gift tickets each day. These tickets can't be refunded.
