The Daily Free Box in Pokemon Go is often overlooked by higher-level players for its lackluster rewards, but players have discovered a trick to getting rare loot from their boxes.
Pokemon Go has a variety of items that players can loot or buy using the game’s premium currency. These items range from necessary to play the game to useful items in certain scenarios.
While there are a number of ways to obtain the necessary items, players have often referred to Pokemon Go’s microtransactions as “predatory” or “greedy”. And the changes that Niantic makes/resets are often disappointing to the community.
However, a new Daily Free Box trick has divided players. Some are happy that there’s an opportunity to get a free crate full of rare items, while others find it unfair or frustrating to continue scavenging their crates for essentials.
Here’s how the Pokemon Go Daily Box trick works
Daily Free Boxes are often pretty lame, containing just a few berries and pokeballs. But there is a simple trick – which requires some patience – that allows players to swap out the items in said crate.
The trick doesn’t always work and some Reddit users have theorized that the trick is based on the player’s account. You mentioned that it is “similar to the old scan task reward tiers.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to performing the trick:
- Open Pokemon Go
- Check the contents of the Daily Free Box (DO NOT CLAIM)
- Close the app
- Wait an hour +
- Open Pokemon Go
- Check the Daily Free Box again
If the contents of your box haven’t changed, you’re not alone. Some players have stated that their boxes never changed using this method. Others have stated that one day it will work for them and the next it won’t.
At Dexerto, we’ve done our own testing and can confirm that this trick works. Below is the result of waiting one hour after checking the original content of the Daily Free Box.
The picture above doesn’t even show the best items you can get. Players have claimed that their box contained several incense sticks, a Super Incubator, and Remote Raid Passes.
