Players Don’t Feel Strong Enough to Resist Shiny Mew in Pokemon Go

A user posted a meme to Reddit displaying the light lea Shiny Mew, and then said how they wouldn’t spend the money during this community strike. One user even expressed that they had never thought of spending money on the game at all until they saw this event, which has now persuaded them to want to purchase a ticket.

Many players then discussed with the community how this is a really rare opportunity to get a Shiny Mew, so they might as well go ahead and grab a ticket and try to catch one. Not to mention it can be made easy for users who still have a Master Ball on hand. Alongside the help of the new Campfire app, players can easily find more raiding buddies to help get a Shiny Mew as well.
