UPDATE: Shiny Pikachu, Eevee Event Begins Soon in US, App Live
Western fans will soon get a special Pokémon Let’s Go! Pikachu & Let’s Go! Eevee event at participating Target stores in the US. Players can download a special code to get a shiny Pikachu or shiny Eevee using a new app for iOS and Android called “Pokémon Pass”. It appears that this may be used solely for promotions at Target stores and will also launch with additional features, such as digital Detective Pikachu stickers.
The event will begin on May 11 and players can scan special QR codes within the app to receive different prizes. It is unknown whether this will work even outside store locations using photos of the QR codes or if there is a GPS component included in the app.
We’ll let you know more as further details are released!
