Pokemon Go and the Weekly Box: The Latest Troll Attempt?

Pokemon Go and the Weekly Box: The Latest Troll Attempt?


from Susan Brown
With each week, the content of the weekly box goes into a new round. This box, which can be bought by Pokémon Go trainers for one Pokécoin, previously offered valuable consumables such as Remote Raid Passes or – after the end of the Remote Raid Pass offer – incubators. The contents of the weekly box in the last week of July 2022 appear to be a joke – or attempted troll – by comparison.

You already know it by now: We have made it our business to document. Namely, the slow – or rather very, very fast – decline of the contents of the Weekly 1 Pokecoin Box. A quick recap: At the end of May, the folks at Pokémon Go decided to take the Remote Raid Pass out of the box and pack in other goodies in its place. The goal behind this is to get players out more to turn Pokémon Couch back into Pokémon Go after the pandemic.

The Rumor: Get rid of the weekly box

The assumption in the Pokémon Go community is that the developers want to abolish the weekly box, but without provoking an uproar in the fan base of the virtual pocket monster hunt. Stupidly, however, the folks at Niantic provoke such a commotion with each additional weekly box disappointment. They could at least clearly communicate their intentions, if they have one.

The Reality: The Contents of the Weekly Box

In the last week of July 2022, the weekly box content downgrade comes to a new highlight: there is a smoke. Apart from the fact that the item is now not comparable in value to other, previous items, one or the other trainer will certainly wonder whether this should be a troll attempt after the smoke has been weakened.
