Pokemon Go is soon set to get its fourth Community Day of 2021. Players planning on participating in the April event may be wondering if the Snivy in the Sunshine paid ticket is worth it.

First introduced in 2018, Go’s Community Days have been one of the game’s most popular events. Each month, players come together to catch a highlighted Pokemon with boosted spawn rates. For April 2021’s celebration, Trainers will take on Gen V starter, Snivy.

While free, the festivities also come with optional paid ticket research. Fans of the Unova Grass-type may be wondering if it’s actually worth it. Below we will break everything you need to know, including all tasks and rewards to help you make that decision.

Snivy’s Community Day officially kicks off on Sunday, April 9 at 11:00 AM and runs until 5:00 PM local time. The paid ticket for the bonus Research is already live for purchase in Pokemon Go’s Shop. Players can get access to the content for $0.99.

While the purchasable content does not guarantee Trainers a Shiny version of Snivy, it does ensure several encounters with it. Essentially, it will give fans more chances of running into the rare alternate version.

As of 2021, the ‘mon’s third evolution, Serperior, is not the best pick for Go’s Battle League. However, those who evolve Snivy during the Community Day will get the special move Frenzy Plant, which makes it much more viable in the PVP mode.

Is the Snivy in the Sunshine Community Day ticket worth it?

The answer to this largely depends on the player. Snivy fans will probably want to shell out the $0.99 as it technically gives them more chances to run into a Shiny version. The extra Candy is also a nice perk, making it easy to evolve the Grass starter.

Trainers who are set on using Serperior in Battle League will also get the exclusive move, Frenzy Plant. The elite Charge Attack makes the creature go from just a mediocre contender to a formidable one.
