What you need to know

  • Pokémon Go promo codes can now be redeemed online.
  • Niantic has launched a website where players can redeem codes separate of the app.
  • iPhone users, who have not been able to claim promo codes previously, will finally be able to get some free loot.

Today, Niantic announced a new website for Pokémon Go players to redeem promo codes. While promo codes have been a part of Pokémon Go since the beta version, this feature has been underutilized. Codes were rare and even when players obtained them, if they used an Apple device, they could not redeem them. For some time now, players have been hoping that Niantic would implement the same solution that it used for one of its other AR games, Ingress. Ingress players have long since been able to go online to redeem their promotional codes, getting lots of useful items for free applied directly to their account. Well, the day has finally arrived and now all Pokémon Go players can redeem promo codes, regardless of their device.

To celebrate, Niantic released the following promo code:

  • EMRK2EZWLVSSZDC5 expires April 10, 2020

Player can redeem this code by logging into the official Pokémon Go Promo Code Redemption site with the Google, Facebook, or Niantic Kids account they use to log into Pokémon Go. Then, enter in the code and you'll be rewarded with free items. Niantic continues to evolve their approach to real world gaming while social distancing has become a necessity, and this is just one more way to let players engage with these games when they cannot leave their homes.
