Aside from these, there are several Reddit discussions among players about what they hope to see next.

One speculation that stood out came from a user named One Weird Globe from Canada. He detailed the following in the now-viral post:

  • Special box = 250 = 10GB (Great Ball) + 2EI (Egg Incubator)
  • Great box = 550 = 20GB + 4EI + 2I (Incense)
  • Ultra box = 1500 = 20 UB (Ultra Ball)+ 6EI + 25I

The user then went on to assume the following:

  • GB (Great Ball) = 20
  • EI (Egg Incubator) = 25 (normally 150 ? an ~83% discount)
  • I (Incense) = 25 (normally 80 ? a ~69% discount)

The user concluded the following based on a?25-coin price for incubators and incense:

  • Ultra box = 1500 = 20 UB + 6EI + 25I
  • Ultra box = 1500 = 20 UB + (625) + (2525)
  • Ultra box = 1500 = 20 UB + 150 + 625
  • Ultra box = 1500 = 20 UB + 775
  • Ultra box = 1500 – 775 = 20 UB
  • Ultra box = 725 = 20 UB
  • Ultra Ball = 36.25

For the newest boxes, he detailed:

  • Bronze Box = 460
  • Silver Box = 980
  • Gold Box = 2480
