Pokemon GO, like most mobile games, has an in-app shop full of items with varying uses. Some are required for gameplay and can be obtained in other ways, while others are purely cosmetic and are only used to make an avatar stand out. In any case, most trainers will not pass up an opportunity to get a handful of items for free when it presents itself.
Pokemon GO frequently includes free bundles in the shop that trainers can simply click to redeem, but larger bundles of items are occasionally given away for other occasions. These items are typically redeemed with a promo code for a variety of reasons, so players should be aware of how to redeem the code for the correct items if the opportunity arises.
The difficulty of redeeming promo codes varies depending on each trainer’s login method and device of choice. Android users have the simplest method because they can redeem promo codes directly in the app. Apple users, on the other hand, will need to use a web browser to redeem a promo code, which can make the process a little more complicated.
If you have a promo code and aren’t sure how to turn it into a bundle of items, here are the various methods based on login method and device…
To Redeem An Offer Code On The Web
Go to https://rewards.nianticlabs.com/pokemongo/signin for more information.
Log in with the same username and password you use to access your Pokémon GO account.
Enter your coupon code here.
Following the successful redemption of an offer code, a message will appear displaying the items added to your inventory.
To Redeem An Offer Code On The Web With Pokémon Trainer Club (PTC) Accounts
Users with PTC accounts are currently unable to redeem offer codes on the web. If you log in through PTC, you can link another login provider to your account and redeem your offer code through that account.
To Redeem A Offer Code In-App (Android Only)
In the Map View, tap the Main Menu button.
Tap the Shop button.
At the bottom of the screen, enter the offer code in the text field.
That should be all the information players need to redeem a promo code if they are ever fortunate enough to come across one. As the Season of Celebration continues, keep an eye out for future promotional opportunities!
Trainers may want to keep hunting down the best Unova Pokemon in the game if improving their Battle Raid rosters and completing their Pokedex is their primary goal as they work through these amazing events and enjoy the early days of the GO Beyond update. Keep an eye out for more Pokemon GO strategy guides, news, and updates in the near future. Until then, trainers, best of luck!
