Pokémon GO: Should you buy the Something Extraordinary Special Research ticket?

Should you buy a ticket?

Niantic adds new events to celebrations in Pokémon GO that players can participate in, and occasionally there is a priced ticket that players can purchase for extra real-world money. The latest ticketed event is the Something Extraordinary Special Research ticket as a part of the Mythic Blade event. This ticket will cost players $7.99 USD (or the equivalent in their local currency), and can be purchased in the in-game shop.

Should you buy the Something Extraordinary ticket?

The choice to buy or not buy the ticket for this event will come down to what players hope to get out of the event. Tickets will occasionally net players rare or even exclusive Pokémon, but for this event, players will mostly receive items and Pokémon encounters. It is not recommended that players purchase the ticket for the Mythic Blade event unless they want these extra items.
