Pokémon GO released its Cyber Week boxes leaving many of its players disappointed.

For this year's Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Niantic released three different boxes with players noticing that the deals have no price change and hold less items than the usual boxes.

The three Cyber Week boxes are as labeled: Special, Ultra and Adventure. The everyday special, ultra and adventure boxes are priced the same as the Cyber Week boxes.

The special box will cost a player 480 Poké Coins while the ultra and adventure are marked at 1480 Poké Coins. The ultra and adventure box will cost players more than $10 as 1200 Poké Coins are sold in the game for $9.99.

The contents of the boxes are what have shocked many players. The normal adventure box includes:

  • 16 Super Incubators
  • 4 Star Pieces
  • 4 Incense
  • 4 Egg Incubators

While the Cyber Week adventure box includes:

  • 16 Super Incubators
  • 3 Star Pieces
  • 5 Incense
  • 2 Egg Incubators

Both pried at 1480 Poké Coins, Pokémon GO players have taken their frustrations out on Twitter and Reddit, upset that the Cyber Week deal is more of a scam. Less Star Pieces and Egg Incubators are given to players, while one extra incense is added the Cyber box for the same price.

As Pokémon GO fans continue to share their disappointment on social media, players hope that Niantic will put out better deals in the future. For now, it is recommended to save your Poké Coins until the Cyber Week deal is over.
