Pokemon Go

Ever since the Pokémon GO launched on Android devices players have seen the mysterious 'Promos' text field on the Shop page and wondered where they could get their hands on these codes, and what they provided. On this page we can confirm that they're really not so mysterious - they do exist!

Important note for Apple iOS users! - Rather than read through this entire guide only to be disappointed, iOS users should know that Pokémon GO promo codes can not currently be redeemed on Apple devices (the field simply doesn't appear in the iOS version of the game). HOWEVER! iOS users can log into their account via Niantic's Offer Redemption webpage and redeem codes online.

Pokémon GO Promo Code questions

Where can I find Pokémon GO promo codes?

Niantic has been known to tempt trainers back to the game by emailing promo codes to lapsed players. It's also possible to find lists of codes posted on the internet - some of them single use, others locked after an unspecified number of uses - but ultimately hunting promo codes in this way is a rather long-winded and scattershot method of getting items (many of which are available free from PokéStops).

If you're dedicated though, and you don't mind some detective work, there are plenty of codes circulating on the world wide web to try. Just be careful about clicking on unsavoury links.

We'll keep an eye out for any big promotions Niantic lines up and post details here when we have them.

How do I redeem a Pokémon GO promo code?

You can visit Niantic's Offer Redemption webpage and redeem promo codes there. Simply follow the instructions below (from Niantic's FAQ):

To redeem an offer code on the web:
1. Visit this website.
2. Log in using the same credentials you use to access your Pokémon GO account.
3. Enter your offer code.
4. After successfully redeeming an offer code, a message will display the items added to your inventory.

Alternatively, Android users can redeem codes in-game. As we mentioned at the very beginning, promo code redemption in Pokémon GO is limited to Android devices only. If you do come across a Pokémon GO promo code, non-iOS players can simply follow the instructions below:

  1. Touch the Main Menu button while in Map View (the little Poké Ball icon).
  2. Touch the Shop button.
  3. Scroll down to the very bottom to find the Promos text field.
  4. Enter the code and touch Redeem.

Voila!

Why aren't Pokémon GO promo codes redeemable on iOS devices?

Apple is notoriously antsy when it comes to redeeming things through apps. Amazon Kindle or Audible app users, for example, are unable to buy books through the apps themselves and are forced to purchase via a web browser. Apple takes 30% on all sales that go through its store which is likely the reason why promo code redemption is Android-only at present.

IPhoneNO

An earlier Niantic game, Ingress, circumvented this by providing a web-based system to redeem codes through, and this solution eventually materialised for Pokémon GO.

We'll update this with more info involving Pokémon GO Promo Codes as and when it becomes available. Until then, good hunting!
