I think that when it takes 12+ weeks before the pro shop changes again, a lot of players that were collecting crystals to buy Phoebe for donation reasons, will not participate at all. There is no guarantee that when the pro shop changes next time, phoebe will be in there for sale once again. There is even no guarantee that Janus or Ceres pal are still in there. The pro shop has room available for 9 items/pals, so next time maybe the items will be replaced once again, maybe more.
And since we know that the shop keeps a lot of items in there for a few months, as soon as Phoebe shows up, we have plenty of time to collect more crystals and buy it at that moment. Even when it reappears next time, who guarantees us that it’s not gone for a longer period of time the next time the shop changes?
Why not simply keep items plus pals available? Is it that hard to add a scrollbar or button?
Just imagine, we get a free ticket once in 4 weeks, so we get 3 free ones during 12 weeks (under condition, we collect the ticket in time). So we need to spend 5600 gems for getting 10 extra tickets (2 packs of 2800).
Since I have most pro items I want and the one I am looking for is not available any more in the shop (it was there during first pro leagues, when I only used free tickets), why I would spend 5600 gems for an extreme low chance to get just that item I am looking for, while it’s not in the shop? I already have enough crystals for buying it, when it becomes available. I definitely won’t stockpile a mountain of crystals for this goal.
Starting to buy tickets plus saving crystals for other pals would be crazy, why risking that this pal is no longer available in the shop before we have enough pals for turning it into a beast? That makes no sense.
