The Pokémon Company has announced a new app for Android and Apple iOS called Pokémon Pass which is free and links to your Pokémon Trainer Club account to get rewards. The iOS version requires iOS 11.0 or later with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. The Android version requires Android 5.1 and up.
Pokémon Pass connects you with great Pokémon reward activities when you visit participating retailers in your area. Sign in with your free Pokémon Trainer Club account, then get notified of upcoming events at a store near you. When you visit the store, use your phone’s camera to scan a code to unlock a gift—such as in-game items for Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! or Pokémon photo stickers for your camera.
To use the app, you’ll need to enable location services and grant permission for the app to use your phone’s camera. You’ll also need a free Pokémon Trainer Club account, which you can create on Pokemon.com.
Add a little Pokémon fun to your next trip to the store with Pokémon Pass!
Get Shiny Pikachu and Shiny Eevee at Target
Use the Pokémon Pass app to add one of these Shiny Pokémon to your Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! game.
Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! players can add a uniquely colored Pokémon to their game by visiting a US Target store between May 11 and June 23, 2019. Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! players can get a Shiny Eevee, while those playing Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! can get a Shiny Pikachu.
To receive one of these Pokémon, you'll need to download the new Pokémon Pass app for select iOS and Android devices. Pokémon Pass is available to download from the App Store and Google Play at no cost. You'll even get a bonus Detective Pikachu photo sticker when you download the app, too!
This app delivers exclusive digital rewards to Pokémon Trainer Club account owners when they're at designated retail locations. If you're an account owner and enter a participating Target store, Pokémon Pass will use geolocation to automatically notify you of nearby reward offerings. The app will then guide you through several prompts, including one to scan a special QR Code found in-store, so you can claim your Shiny Pikachu or Shiny Eevee.
Additionally, if you visit Target on May 11, 2019, between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. in your local time zone, you can celebrate the release of the POKÉMON Detective Pikachu movie with a special giveaway. Fans can receive a new Psyduck promo card for the Pokémon Trading Card Game and a movie poster. Supplies are limited, though, so don't wait!
