Pokemon GO x Ed Sheeran collaboration confirmed with in-game Squirtle with glasses being available again. Pokemon Go will be collaborating with Ed Sheeran to celebrate the launch of his new album. All Pokemon trainers will be able to view Ed Sheeran’s musical performances at the in-game News section from 22nd to 30th November.
Earlier this year, Niantic (Pokemon GO’s developer) had conducted a musical festival in the game featuring the mythical Pokemon Meloetta. That was one of the most celebrated and lucrative events within the game and was well-received by all players. With Ed Sheeran, Pokemon GO will be creating a music festival with a real person for the first time.
Ed Sheeran’s performance can be viewed by Pokemon trainers from 22nd to 30th November and will feature songs from his new album “=”. His other hit songs will also be available, which are:
- Bad Habits
- Overpass Graffiti
- Thinking Out Loud
- First Time
The developers will also increase the spawning rate of Water-type Pokemons in the wild for the players to catch. This will be done because Ed Sheeran always begins his Pokemon RPG journey with a Water-type Pokemon. Thus players will find many Mudkip, Piplup, Oshawott, Froakie, and Totodile in the wild.
We will also see the return of the special Pokemon, Squirtle with Glasses. Thus players who have joined the game at a later date after its introduction will finally get a chance to find and capture it.
Here are some rewards that you can get during the collaboration event:
- Suprise Event Bonuses: You need to take a snapshot every day to get a surprise reward.
- Ed Sheeran’s Overpass Graffiti will be played as the In-Game music every night from 22nd to 30th November.
- In Wild Encounters, trainers can find Totodile, Mudkip, Piplup, and Oshawott appearing frequently in the wild. They can also have lucky encounters with Froakie and Squirtle wearing sunglasses along with other shiny Pokemons.
- Trainers can also find Squirtle with sunglasses when they complete Field Research Task Encounters.
- Trainers can get the “=” sweatshirt through the following code VVM87WGMMUZHTB8X.
- They will also be able to receive Water-type themed stickers by spinning PokeStops, opening gifts, or purchasing them directly from the in-game shop.
- Trainers can also find a One-Time free Event Box that has a Lure Module, 20 Pokeballs, 10 Razz Berries, and 10 Pinap Berries.
