Free swag, but there’s a snag
Niantic is running another product placement campaign, this time offering up free avatar items branded with the logo of US telecom giant Verizon for Pokémon Go.
One of the included items is a Verizon facemask so you can be reminded that the world outside your door is a toxic hellscape crawling with deadly viruses.
- Verizon code: LRQEV2VZ59UDA
Corporate chic: Earlier promotional bundles have been a tiny bit aesthetically pleasing, like the North Face X Gucci gear or the One Piece straw hat. But hey, at least you have the option of dressing your avatar up like a Verizon-sponsored ninja barista with oxygen allergy: Just redeem the code in-game on Android, or via the Niantic code redemption portal on iOS.
Love conquers all: Pokémon Masters EX has just started its considerably more pleasant Valentine Day event called Baking Buddies, which adds the Serena & Whimsicott sync pair. Serena and Dawn will make cards and gifts for everyone during the event.
