Pokemon GO The Spheal Deal Special Research Ticket Details

January 14, 2022

Pokemon GO’s latest Community Day is here and with it, a brand new ticket-only Community Day Special Research Story titled “The Spheal Deal”.

This ticket follows in the footsteps of recent ones including “Nothin’ Dull About Duskull” and more recently “Flash, Spark and Gleam”.

The ticket will include plenty of research tasks and rewards for players, so let’s take a look at what “The Spheal Deal” will likely entail.

What is The Price of the “The Spheal Deal” Community Day Ticket?

The “The Spheal Deal” Special Research Ticket is the cheapest that you’ll find in Pokemon GO.

While historically, some, like the Kanto Tour, have cost upwards of $15, this event will cost players $1 (or the equivalent pricing in players’ local countries).

The ticket will run alongside the Spheal Community Day, which kicks off at 11 am on Sunday, January 16.

Do you Need to Complete The Research During Community Day?
