When you take a look at some of the Lightning’s previous theme nights, this one seems to be the most interactive the Lightning have ever come up with. The Tampa Bay Lightning’s Pokémon Go night is a lot more than an amazing night of hockey.

As most Pokémon trainers in the Tampa Bay area know by now, the Amalie Arena is host to three PokéStops and a PokéGym. On Pokémon Go night the PokeStops will have lures running all night long in order to draw the little creatures to the arena.

Now, this is a specially ticketed event. In order to get in on all the action, you’ll have to purchase the special ticket. Here’s a closer look at what makes this ticket so special.

Included with each ticket, which will cost fans $35 each, will come with a Terrace Level (300 level) seat to the game, a specialized Lightning t-shirt including your Pokémon Team (Team Valor FTW!), a Lightning PokéBadge, and exclusive access to an intermission PokéParty.

There will also be a number of phone charging stations throughout the arena and free Wi-Fi for everyone. It seems as if the Lightning have thought of everything. Battery Life…check. Not Eating Up Your Data Plan…check. Needless to say, it seems like a fun-filled night for Pokémon fans.

Just when you think the night can’t get any better, the Lightning will be giving out numerous prizes. Just a few of those aforementioned prizes will be for Most PokeSpirit, Top Collector, Highest XP, Top Jogger, and much more.

If you ask us, $35 is a pretty good deal for the night. First and foremost, you get to see an amazing night of hockey as the Tampa Bay Lightning will battle the Boston Bruins in what will undoubtedly be a heated matchup. Then, you add in the prizes, special events, t-shirt, and more and you have a pretty good night.

So…do you want to be a part of the action on November 3rd? Well, if you are in need of more information on the event, have questions, or would like to purchase tickets to the event, you can head on over to the Amalie Arena’s official site.
