Legacy Special Box List

Legacy Special Box List

A history of the item boxes that are sold temporarily during events. These boxes were added in 2016 and have been a recurring feature since.

Best Values Per Item

Best Historical Value only accounts for one item being in the boxes. Calculations have ignored other items in the boxes. Items that are cheaper in the shop are marked with *.

Current Item Box Analysis - Water Festival 2018
wffinal18

These breakdowns will assume a value of 0 to Lucky Eggs and Ultra Balls. Ultra Balls are available from Stops, Gyms, and Research (limited really only by bag space). Lucky Eggs provide 0 value to players over level 38 and are readily available in almost every Legacy Special Box. Eggs are available to purchase bundled for 50 gold each though their value likely falls between 0-20 gold for a given player.

While players will find utility in Super Incubators over traditional Incubators if constantly running 9 Eggs or rushing to complete Research, a majority of players will find their gameplay mechanics identical; they each hatch 3 Eggs. For this reason, when discussing Super Incubator prices,they are comparable to Incubators.

Incense and Lure Modules provide extremely similar benefits in increasing Pokemon spawns. Incense provides an additional 12-30 spawns. Lure Module provides an additional 10 spawns, though their duration is often increased, for further effectiveness. The value of Incense fluctuates based on how many a player already has (and how frequently they are being given away in recent boxes) but are seen as a necessary item for Community Day. The value of a Lure Module fluctuates extremely based on your ability to “share” Lure Modules with other players. This can make Lures feel like they are multiplying their value, if multiple players each take turns putting lures up, but also significantly decreases the demand, as another player can always lure for you.

Special Box

Valuing each item at full (Incense at 50 each), this box is noteworthy in that it is the best deal ever offered for 480 coins, a 46.66% discount.

Valuing only Premium Raid Passes and Incubators at full price, this box still ties for 1st in the 480 category, a 20% discount.

The most interesting thing about this box is that it allows you to purchase Premium Raid Passes at roughly their historic low of 61.66 each while acquiring Incubators at their full price. A player who is in need of Premium Raid Passes now while also wanting Incubators may desire this box, though it is advisable to save for better deals.

Great Box

Valuing each item at full (Incense at 50 each, Lucky Eggs at 0), this box also sets a record in its 780 price, a 54.12% discount.

Valuing only Premium Raid Passes and Incubators at full price, this box provides a 44.29% discount. This discount beats all previous Legacy Special Boxes and is rivaled only by this event’s Ultra Box, though the Ultra Box offers upgrades on the other items; Lure Modules into Incense and Lucky Eggs into Star Piece.

Noticeably, this box offers a higher density of Premium Raid Passes than this event’s Ultra Box. At 780 coins, it is more efficient to buy this box than Raid Passes, even if interested in no other items, offering a 2.5% discount on Raid Passes only.

While the Ultra Box is still a better deal overall, this box is still a great pick up. Valuing Incubators at 130 or less each (and other items at 0, Raid Passes at 100) actually makes this a better deal than the Ultra Box. That said, placing almost any value on Starpiece swings this back in the Ultra Box's favor. Trainers focusing solely on raiding or unable to afford the Ultra Box should still find this box worth picking up.

Ultra Box

Valuing each item at full, this box also sets a record in its 1480 price and overall, a 64.76% discount.

Valuing only Premium Raid Passes and Incubators at full price, this box provides a 45.19% discount, the greatest discount ever offered on these two Premium Items. Discluding the Battle Showdown 2018 Ultra Box, the previous 3 offered Ultra Boxes have had this in common, with discounts trending higher during each event. Of those, only the Kanto Event Ultra Box provided Star Pieces (14 to this event’s 18), and each of the other 3 contained Lucky Eggs.

Accounting for the value of Star Piece only increases this Box’s value. Valuing Star Piece at 50 each and Incubators at 100 each STILL ties this box for the best deal ever offered, a 52.26% discount. Players who feel their Incubator needs are beyond met may consider passing on this deal. The Star Piece likely makes it a better purchase for any hardcore grinder, as it ties in well with the current event.

June 2018 Community Day Box

  • 6 Lucky Eggs
  • 4 Premium Raid Pass
  • 20 Pinap Berry
  • 30 Ultra Ball

With the current available Legacy Special Boxes offering much better deals on premium items, this month’s CD box is extremely hard to justify. The Raid Passes are the only real premium item up for grabs here, and you’ll pay more for this box than simply buying them in the shop. 6 Lucky Eggs for 6x catch xp during this CD is nice though it’s trivial to pick up Lucky Eggs in other discounted Legacy Special Boxes for essentially free while also grabbing better items at a discount.

As it stands, the only reason to purchase this box is ultimately as a quick way to pick up Pinap Berries during CD. As discussed below, it’s impossible to get enough Larvitar Candy, and you should be Pinaping each one you see. That is still possible to be done with Great and occasionally even Pokeballs with an over 90% success rate, so Ultra Balls shouldn’t be in too high of a demand though.

Considering a consistent discounted rate of at least 38.33% on Raid Passes (historical low and last three available Ultra Boxes), that essentially equates to paying 233.33 coins for the remaining 20 Pinap Berries, or 11 ⅔ each.
