Witches… yup, stopping there, but you get the drift, right? This event really breaks down to one thing. Is early access to Galarian Mr. Mime and Mr. Rime, all the items, and encounters obtained in the Special Research, and the Medal for the event worth the asking price? That’s a personal choice, and if you want to read debates about it, they are everywhere.

Whatever you decide, remember to always obey your local health and safety mandates and stay socially distanced. Stay safe, Fam!
