Niantic just unveiled a new sponsor for Japan based Pokémon GO players – Joyfull!

Joyfull is a popular chain of family restaurants in Japan, serving a variety of meals throughout the day. Joyfull is known for good dishes at a low price and for developing restaurants in places where convenience stores are scarce.

This sponsorship concludes the two new sponsors added in 0.59.2. As far as in game changes go, almost all of 780 Joyfull locations will be converted to Stops and Gyms:

  • 703 locations will become PokéStops
  • 79 locations will become Gyms

Joyfull released an official statement in their news section which you can read here (a translation tool is required). The official statement includes a map indicating where the new PokéStops and Gyms are placed:
