Since its release in 2016, Pokémon GO has taken the world by storm. During those first few months after its launch, it was impossible to go outside and not see someone on their phone playing Pokémon GO. Years later, the augmented reality mobile game is still going strong with a dedicated fan base.
The game’s developers, Niantic, have kept the community alive and thriving with a number of special events, game modes, and promotions. Today, we’re going to be breaking down the special promo codes in Pokémon Go and showing you how to unlock limited-time rewards.
What Are Promo Codes?
Promo codes are limited-time passwords that can be entered in-game. Once the promo code is entered, players will receive exclusive and limited-time rewards. These rewards can range from items like Poké Balls and berries to rare cosmetic items from brand collaborations. It’s important to note that the promo codes are only active for a certain period of time. This means that once they expire, players will no longer be able to claim the reward attached to those codes.
How to Use Promo Codes?
Promo codes can be redeemed easily on your Android or iPhone device by following a few simple steps:
- Open the Pokémon Go app.
- At the very bottom of the screen, select the Poké Ball button.
- In the middle of the screen, press the Shop icon and scroll down to the bottom.
- Scroll all the way to the bottom, and a “Promos” section should appear.
- From there, all you have to do is press the Redeem button and enter the promo code.
- Once the promo code is entered, the rewards should be immediately sent to your account.
While redeeming through the app is the simplest method, players can also redeem their promo codes online. You can go to the official Pokémon GO website to redeem your rewards. All you have to do is log into your account and enter the code.
