Pokemon Pass App Released May 1, 2019

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

The Pokémon Company has just released a new smartphone application to take advantage of new types of upcoming promotions for the Pokémon franchise, Pokémon Pass.

Pokémon Pass is designed to give rewards for participating in scheduled promotional events. You can earn anything from in-game Mystery Prizes that can be used in either of the Pokémon Let’s Go games on the Nintendo Switch to AR stickers that can be used on your smart device.

To use the Pokémon Pass application you’ll need an online Pokémon Trainer account (which you can get for free by signing up at pokemon.com). You will need to grant the application access to your GPS and Camera to redeem specific rewards.

The first major Pokémon Pass rewards will be coming on May 11th, where Target stores across the US will partner with Pokémon Pass to offer a Shiny Pikachu in Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee or a Shiny Eevee in Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu on the Nintendo Switch. You’ll need to find a special in-store display and snap a pic of the display’s QR code to earn your reward.

Something tells me that this application was designed to help people who have been incredibly lost whenever Target held Pokémon promotional events in the past. The store is big and there’s just no way to know where to go to obtain a promotional item, and most of the clerks who work there have no idea what you’re talking about when you inquire about them. This should help cut out the hassle and still provide a fun experience.

Pokémon Pass is free to download right now on the Android and iOS Devices.
