Following a technical issue, trainers who purchased Kanto Tour tickets can now get in on a bonus event.

Niantic Labs announced it would be debuting a bonus event for the Pokemon GO Kanto Tour ticket holders on March 2. This reveal comes after a bug allowing those who did not purchase tickets by the deadline to access the programming for free. Several trainers allegedly felt as though they had been cheated due to this exploit. Therefore, in an attempt to smooth things over, Niantic decided to try again—making an extra event that was truly just for them.
