Latest Item Box Analysis - August 2018 Communtiy Day Event
August 2018 Community Day Legacy Special Boxes

These breakdowns will assume a value of 0 to Lucky Eggs. Lucky Eggs currently 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. A level cap increase is likely not too far in the future, but it is unknown if such an increase will bring actual unlocks with it, so it’s safe to view them as being worthless for any players 38+ for now, especially for those players not maxing Pokemon (the only benefit to leveling up).

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.

Lure Modules continue being the trickiest item to evaluate, with their value being between 0-50 gold based on the location. Players with low spawn density have a higher need for them though it is mostly Trainer/Stop density that affects their supply and demand as each Pokestop only needs one Lure during Community Day.

While Incense can fluctuate in value based on how/when it is used, they remain a key item for anyone wishing to maximize their spawns on CD, especially when presented with a meta-relevant Pokemon, limited time, or cool shiny Pokemon. Eevee likely falls within that category. Though it is shiny, collectors will want to ensure enough shiny to make shiny Eeveelutions up to Gen 8. This again comes down to available play time, as 6 hours of CD should be enough for more trainers to collect enough.

Special Box

This box keeps up with the 4% discount seen in the past two Special Boxes but with worse items. Even for players already planning on purchasing 3 Incubators, 30 gold for 1 Lure Module, 3 Lucky Eggs, and 30 Ultra Balls is a borderline markup and better saved for future boxes.

Great Box

This box is not a discount considering just Incubators though still finds a home as a reasonable Community Day Box. Considering Star Pieces and Incubators, this box provides a 25.7% discount. It should be easy to spot that players interested in just these two items can find them at a cheaper rate in the Ultra Box (double the quantity, less than double the cost).

The real draw to this box is that it is the only current box offering Incense. In fact, it is the only box since Safari Zone Dortmund to offer Incense. Incense are arguably skippable this CD due to the 2 day nature of the event. This also minimizes the chances a given player is unable to play. Still, if you are stuck at work or something similar unable to play this CD, Incense becomes invaluable. The Great Box provides a 42.2% discount when also factoring in Incense (and is actually a really respectable deal to the portion of the player base that doesn’t Raid). It’s value is wholly determined by your individual value on Incense.

Ultra Box

Considering only the Premium Raid Passes and Incubators, this box provides a 40.8% discount, making it the 5th best Legacy Special Box offered for these two items. This ties May’s CD Ultra Box but is outclassed by a few since then. That alone makes it a justifiable purchase. Trainers primarily focused on Raiding can still hold out to save coins for an eventual Raid Pass discount.

Factoring in Star Piece makes this box actually stand out. Now a 52.26% discount, this box ranks 3rd highest all time, behind Water Festival 2018 and February 2018 Update, and tied with Kanto Event’s Great Box. This Box still ranks 6th all time when considering Incense and Lure Modules (which aren’t in this box) at full price. Respectable numbers of the three best Premium Items in the game makes this box a true contender.

The biggest reason to purchase this box is potentially those Star Piece. While Star Piece are guaranteed to come to the store during the third leg of the Global Catch Challenge 2018 (which is stardust/Star Piece related), we may not see the item return at amazing rates in that event’s Legacy Special Boxes. The logic for this is that Star Piece during that reward window will already be worth almost 6 times as much, considering 2x Star Piece duration and 3x stardust for catch. Stocking up on Star Pieces a month early may wind up being the cheapest way to ensure you have some left. While that can also be done via the Great Box, purchasing an Ultra Box or two is much better value on Star Piece and Incubators, while also providing a nice pile of Premium Raid Passes for Moltres Day.
