Pokémon Go gamers can obtain a free avatar sweater commemorating Ed Sheeran’s new album by inputting a code on the Niantic website.
As the Pokémon franchise celebrates its 20th anniversary with celebrity collaborations throughout the year, Pokémon Go is joining in the fun with an Ed Sheeran tie-in. The game is going above and above after announcing a streamable Ed Sheeran concert from November 22nd to the 30th, which will feature the return of Squirtle with sunglasses. Pokémon has already issued an album to commemorate its 25th anniversary, which features Kat Perry and Post Malone, indicating that the corporation is eager to collaborate with some big names.
Today, Pokémon Go announced that players could enter a code to wear a special avatar sweater with the album’s logo on it to promote Ed Sheeran’s new album. After joining in with their Pokémon Go account, players must input the code RWQNL567S5SP7VTL on the Niantic Labs website to receive the sweater, which will appear in-game. The code is only valid until 1:00 p.m. on November 30th, when the Ed Sheeran concert ends. While some may be perplexed by Sheeran’s connection to Pokémon GO, anyone can grab this item for free. Because most avatar items are expensive, this is a thoughtful gesture from Niantic.
Because of the game’s social aspect, it frequently sponsors events aimed at bringing players together. With the pandemic still going on, a virtual concert is a good idea. Furthermore, after recent server crashes slowed the Turtwig Spotlight Hour, players grumbled that the reward for the Halloween Quest was lacking. Even if it’s just an avatar sweater, a free item may help to appease players’ wrath.
