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, 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)
