In February a new collaboration for Pokémon GO was announced, with the Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG). We’ve had some teasers for card art, and now we have some more information to share, including a special research!
The Pokémon TCG: Pokémon GO expansion, which will feature cards themed after Pokémon GO, will be available to purchase starting Jun 17, 2022, in the Asia-Pacific region and July 1, 2022, worldwide. You may be able to pre-order from the Pokémon Centre, for example, the UK Pokémon Centre website has the Elite Trainer Box Plus available for pre-order currently.
Products in the Pokémon TCG: Pokémon GO expansion line contain a single-use offer code that can be redeemed in-app for a random assortment of items and—if you’re lucky—avatar item sets. The offer codes can be redeemed between June 17, 2022 – July 31, 2024. Hype!
The stickers below will be available via a code in Pokémon GO TCG expansion sets.
Professor’s Research Card Featuring Professor Willow
Trainers may be able to obtain a special Professor’s Research card featuring Professor Willow! This card contains a single-use offer code that can be redeemed to claim exclusive Special Research.
The offer code can be redeemed until August 1, 2023, at 12:00 a.m. UTC to receive the Special Research. There is no deadline to complete Special Research once it has been claimed.
Note that each account can only receive this Special Research once. You cannot receive more than one Special Research, even if you enter more than one offer code.
This is really exciting, Professor Willow has some big fans in our community, and new Special Research lines are always fun!
