Pokemon Go: How to Get the A Rocky Road Special Research Ticket

Pokemon Go Community Day is coming soon!

Trainers, the next Pokemon Go Community Day event will take place on May 21, 2022 from 11 a.m. local time to 2 p.m. local time.

During this Community Day event, Alolan Geodude will appear more frequently than normal in the wild, and players will have the chance to encounter Shiny Alolan Geodude. You can learn more about this event in our previous coverage.

As part of the May 2022 Community Day event, players have the option to spend $0.99 on a ticket that will give them access to a Special Research storyline on Community Day called “A Rocky Road.”

If you decide to purchase one of these tickets, keep in mind that the ticket can’t be purchased with PokeCoins. The ticket can only be purchased with a real-money transaction.

Also keep in mind that players aren’t required to purchase one of these Special Research tickets to participate in the Community Day event. This ticket is there for players who would like to spend real money to receive extra in-game content.

Finally, Pokemon Go now allows players to purchase premium event tickets for other players. You can learn more about this feature in our previous coverage.
