Here’s a full rundown on whether you should purchase the Halloween Timed Research Ticket in Pokemon GO!

Pokemon GO players are always after great rewards and the best way to get some is by completing Research.

However, Pokemon trainers have to pay to access all of the research the game has to offer. This includes the new Halloween Timed Research which can only be obtained by purchasing a Ticket for it in the in-game shop.

But should you buy the Halloween Timed Research Ticket in Pokemon GO and how easy is it to complete and get all of the rewards?

Is the Halloween Timed Research Ticket Worth Buying in Pokemon GO?

The Halloween Timed Research Ticket is worth buying for Pokemon GO players who want a Spiritomb encounter or an exclusive pose.

It is reasonably expensive but is the only way to catch a Spiritomb at the moment and gives plenty of rewards including an exclusive post for your Avatar. Therefore, it is worth it for some trainers, especially considering you have until 10 AM local time on November 1, 2022 to finish it.

So you can decide for yourself, we’ve included everything you need to know about the Timed Research below including the price and a full walkthrough of the Research Tasks and rewards.

Halloween Timed Research Ticket Price

The Halloween Timed Research costs $5 (or local currency equivalent) in the in-game Pokemon GO Shop.

This is pretty costly but at least there is an alternative for Pokemon trainers who don’t want to spend as much.

If you don’t want to spend $5 on Research then maybe the $1 Halloween Pokemon GO Yamask Timed Research might be the one for you!

For purchasing the Halloween Timed Research Ticket, players also get 3 increased bonuses for the duration of the Pokemon GO Halloween event:

  • 3x Candy for catching Pokemon
  • 3x Candy for hatching Pokemon
