Pokemon Go Ed Sheeran Event: Sunglasses Squirtle and More
Everything you need to know.
Niantic, the creator of Pokemon Go, has partnered with musician Ed Sheeran to launch a new event in Pokemon Go.
The Ed Sheeran collaboration event will run from November 22 at 11 a.m. PT until November 30 at 1 p.m. PT.
During this event, Niantic said Totodile, Mudkip, Piplup, and Oshawott “will be appearing somewhat frequently in the wild.” Players will also have the chance to encounter Squirtle wearing sunglasses and Froakie in the wild, though Niantic indicated that they’ll be rarer than the other Pokemon featured in this event.
Players will also be encouraged to take a Snapshot of a Pokemon each day to earn “a surprise.”
Next, players will be able to complete event Field Research tasks to earn encounters with Squirtle wearing sunglasses. Plus, players will be able to collect Water-type Pokemon-themed stickers during this event by spinning the Photo Disc at PokeStops, opening Gifts, and purchasing them from the in-game store.
A free Event Box will also be available to claim from the store during this event. It will contain a Lure Module, 20 Poke Balls, 10 Razz Berries, and 10 Pinap Berries.
Elsewhere, from November 22 at 1 p.m. PT until November 30 at 1 p.m. PT, players will be able to use the code “VVM87WGMMUZHTB8X” (without the quotation marks) to receive a free hoodie for their in-game avatar that’s inspired by Ed Sheeran’s latest album.
Finally, during this event, players will be able to watch a performance by Ed Sheeran through the in-game “News” menu. Ed Sheeran’s song “Overpass Graffiti” will also be played in Pokemon Go each night during the event.
