Trainers, we have some breaking news to share! It seems Niantic is actively testing Promotional codes we data mined before.
We have reports that Android users have observed a new Promo code section in the store!
This comes as little surprise, as we’re expecting an update to come this week, and the current testing could be a sign of update preparations in progress.
Here’s how the feature looks for us but we have no promo codes to share.
We first encountered redeemable codes in our 0.59.1 data mine, detailing how redeemable codes are written. We also know what redeemable codes can reward: Items, Avatar Swag, Candy, Stardust and PokéCoins.
With 0.61.0 we learned a few new things:
- redeemable codes are tested and ready to release!
- codes are redeemed via the in game shop
- there are two or more types of redeemable codes (promotional, etc)
