Now that's the ticket!
Niantic has announced that you now have the ability to gift event tickets to Pokémon GO friends. This feature kicks off with May Community Day’s Special Research.
Trainers will be able to purchase and gift tickets to any of their Pokémon GO friends that they have achieved a Friendship level of Great Friends or higher with. More tickets—including tickets to the global Pokémon GO Fest event—will be available for gifting soon.
