Get new items in Pokémon GO with Samsung’s Summer of Galaxy

how to get Pokémon GO Summer of Galaxy new free items Samsung Niantic

Samsung has joined forces with Niantic for its Summer of Galaxy promotion. This partnership will see those with a Samsung account in the United States getting free items that they can then use in Pokémon GO. The items you can grab are this tie-die shirt and hat, which will definitely give your trainer a summer vibe.


The Samsung Summer of Galaxy promotion starts today and will run until July 19. Over the course of this week it’s possible to pick up your rewards by logging into your Samsung account and visiting the promotion’s page. You’ll be able to see the items in the sectioned titled “Reward of the Week.” It lists the reward as a Pokémon GO Galaxy Avatar Outfit.

You can access the new items by clicking on the “view details” link on the page. At this point you’ll need to enter your Samsung account email address. As long as everything has been done correctly and you have an account, you should receive an email with your unique code and a link to redeem it. While you can only get your codes up until July 19, they will be redeemable until August 16.

If you desperately want to get your hands on these items but don’t own a Samsung smartphone, don’t worry! You can create a Samsung account for free and still get the rewards as long as you’re based in the U.S. Those who aren’t in the U.S. could use a VPN in order to bypass the restriction. Reddit user Xerye90 has actually outlined the steps you’ll need to take, should you need a little guidance.
