As we go through the analysis it clearly shows these boxes aren’t that good as the Kanto Celebration sale. If you’re holding enough number of Lucky eggs and star pieces and looking only for battle than Special Box is for you, if you make 3 purchase of Special Box you get 18 Passes while in the ultra box you get only 15.

As you’d expect, however, the other items in the Ultra Box do make it the best overall value of the three boxes if you take the non-purchasable items into account. If you can afford it, go for the Ultra Box
