according to the official GameStop website (link was disabled by GS recently), several GameStop locations are soon to become PokéStops. In addition, 50 existing store locations will be “dropping Poké Lures in the near future”. The website opens up with the following message:
“Select GameStop Stores are now PokéStops! Running low on Pokéballs, Potions, Lure Modules or Revives? We’ve got you covered!”
Curiously, Trainers have reported that none of the GS stores are considered to be sponsored Stops. There is an additional chunk of text at the bottom of the page stating the following:
“As you probably already know, Pokemon GO has officially taken over the world. Pokemon GO is now bigger than Twitter! But did you know that 350 GameStop locations are either a PokeStop (place to collect items and Poke Balls) or a Pokemon Gym (place to train your Pokemon)? And we even have 50 GameStop locations dropping Poke Lures in the very near future!”
GameStop locations won’t be actually dropping Lure Modules as player drops, but they will be dropping (activating) them on select locations. This promotion is limited to USA and it’s happening in on November 16th, which is just one day before the release of Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon on 3DS.
We are aware that GameStop will be selling a number of Pokémon Center items, but we do not know to what extent.
