You don't have to buy the the tickets through RHB if you already have the reservation. You can buy from SBB. Check timetable here www.myswissalps.com/ti metable.
Attached is an example of what you will see if you search from Lugano to Tirano. The 5950 bus is the Bernina Express. You will be warned that you need a reservation.
The same process applies for the Tirano to Pontresina leg. Just make sure you pick the right train which will be designated BEX.
(Note the first two screenshots are from the legacy timetable at fahrplan.sbb.ch/bin/qu ery.exe/en the last screenshot is from the more modern website that you will get to using the timetable link above)
