Pokémon GO is available for Android and Apple iOS devices. It was also the fastest game to reach 50 million downloads.
The promotion reads "Players will unlock the Pokemon GO Frappuccino Blended Beverage" and it is labeled "Confidential". Apart from this, references to shiny Pokemon have also been discovered in the codes of the mobile game's most recent update. Despite Niantic's consistent tweaks and improvements, the game remains lacking in several aspects, most notably in player engagement.
One of those "new and exciting" things is the Gen 2, this is also one of the most anticipated updates, and Niantic announced that they will be releasing Gen 2 before this year ends. Might Christmas Day see the release of the legendary birds? After Starbucks and Sprint cordially becoming part of the Niantic cycle, the next step could only be the next 100 Pokemon to surface. To use this function, press and hold on a Pokémon.
Apple Eyes Early Access to New Movies
Apple's iTunes may become the premier destination and store for newly released movies, according to a report from Bloomberg . I think the big question is if consumers are willing to spend $50 to rent a theatrical movie in the comfort of their home.
"Pokemon GO" players can begin to unlock Frappuccino blended on December 8. While the specific details of the massive Pokemon GO announcement on December 12 remain unknown at this point, all signs seem to be pointing to the possibility of a Generation 2 rollout.
On December 8th, some sort of Starbucks promotional event is expected to begin, although this has only been rumored, and it's not clear that this will involve anything other than Starbucks locations turning into PokeStops and special Pokemon themed drinks being offered. However, a huge chunk of Pokemon GO's active community is hoping this update will finally add in the next generation of Pokemon.
The game set the first-week record for downloads on Apple's App Store. This drink is made of raspberry and blackberry which represent the berry items in "Pokemon Go".
