concert, water Pokémon and free bonuses coming soon!

In addition to celebrating the launch of Pokémon Shining Diamond and Shining Pearl in Pokémon GO, Trainers committed to the mobile title can now prepare for another big event!

After announcing a special partnership between Pokémon GO and Ed Sheeran, the development team of the mobile game has in fact offered all the details about it … and there are surprises! At the center of the event we find a special Ed Sheeran concert, which will be organized directly within the Pokémon GO app. Coaches will be able to attend the show from the News section of the game, with the appointment set at 20:00 on Monday 22 November 2021. Among the songs part of the lineup, there will be some singles taken from the new album, in addition to “Perfect”, “Bad Habits”, “Overpass Graffiti”, “Thinking Out Loud”, “First Time” and “Shivers”.

In addition, Pokémon GO will welcome a special celebratory event, which will kick off with the concert and will end at 22:00 on the following Tuesday 30 November. Given Ed Sheeran’s particular fondness for Water-type creatures, players will be able to encounter some of them with particular frequency during this time. In particular: Totodile, Mudkip, Piplup and OShawott. The lucky ones will also come across Froakie and a stylish Squirtle with sunglasses! The latter will also be the reward for completing Field Research missions.

Finally, there will be free rewards:

  • Players will be able to get a themed sweatshirt for their avatar by simply redeeming the code VVM87WGMMUZHTB8X;
  • An Event Pack containing a Lure Module, 20 Pokéballs, 10 Rampon Berry and 10 Pineapple Berry;
