Hello sanik79! Yes, it's definitely economical to purchase a Swiss rail pass for your trips. A 4 day Swiss Pass
would be most economical in your case. With a Swiss Pass, you'll easily save about CHF 100.00 on the normal prices of the trips you listed. If you travel with two ore more people, you could purchase the cheaper Swiss Saver Pass
and save even more. The Swiss Pass offers free travel for all train and bus trips you mention, and grants a 50% reduction on the trip to Pilatus. If offers ease of use as well, as you don't have to purchase separate tickets each time (only for the cable car to Pilatus) and simply get on and off board.
A Swiss Pass includes free transport in the cities you mention. On the Swiss Pass page
you'll find the link 'Overview of the network on which the Swiss Pass is valid', which will show a synoptic map indicating the area of validity. Cities indicated by a white circle with a red dot offer free public transport. Purchase options are listed on the page I mentioned as well.
I hope this answer your questions!
