Earn Shiny Pokémon and more with brand new app, Pokémon Pass

Good news Pokémon fans! A brand new smartphone app called Pokémon Pass is available to download today on iOS and Android devices. For now, the app is exclusive to the US, and there is no word on whether it will release in other regions. You can check out the official trailer below as well as more details on the app!

The Pokémon Pass app connects you with great Pokémon digital rewards when you visit participating retailers in your area. Sign in with your free Pokémon Trainer Club account, and then get notified of upcoming events happening at a store near you. When you visit the store, use your phone’s camera to scan codes to unlock gifts, such as in-game items for Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! and photo stickers for your phone.

Pokémon Pass is free to download and use for Android devices and the iPhone. To use the app, you’ll need to enable location services and grant permission for the app to use your phone’s camera. You’ll also need a free Pokémon Trainer Club account, which you can create on Pokemon.com. The features of Pokémon Pass are currently available only in the United States.

Download the app today to receive a POKÉMON Detective Pikachu photo sticker based on the movie! Place the sticker and snap a photo with the app’s camera function to add Pokémon flair to your shot!

With Pokémon Pass, add a little Pokémon fun to your next trip to the store!
