What Pokémon GO promo codes look like?
It’s unclear at this moment, as the feature hasn’t been officially released yet. The equivalent codes for Ingress are fairly long and cryptic: xhtz7hny1777rffd. Almost guessed that one… ?
How to get Pokémon GO promo codes?
You can get promo codes by attending special events, participating in promotions and solving various code reward challenges presented by Niantic or their partners.
Are promo codes only redeemable by one person, or can everyone redeem a code?
This question hasn’t been answered by Niantic yet, but in Ingress, most codes expire after x amount of uses. However, there are some unique Ingress codes in existence that last for a very long time!
We expect Pokémon GO to follow a similar rule. Fev Games has a list of these “Forever Passcodes” for Ingress.
How to get Legendary Promo Codes?
First of all, there has been no confirmation that Legendary Pokémon will be obtainable with promo codes!
It’s pure speculation at this point, but there are rumors that Niantic could use this system to reward Legendary Pokémon to players who participate in “large scale events”.
One of these events is to take place during the Summer of 2017, as confirmed by Niantic Japan.
Will I get banned for trying out random codes?
No. But don’t do it anyway, just in case.
What is my Pokémon GO promo code?
There is no such thing as “your Pokémon GO promo code”. Promo Codes are created by Niantic and handed out by Niantic. Codes are intended to be for one time use per event or promotion.
Why are promo codes not available on iOS?
Apple insists on collecting it’s 30% fee on EVERY transaction on iOS — even when that transaction occurred offline, as in case with Promotional codes.
For the same reason, you can’t purchase any non-Apple ebooks in-app and have to get your Kobo/Kindle/etc purchases via a web browser.
Ingress iOS players use a special website to redeem Ingress promo codes.
Will iPhone players be able to use Promo Codes?
Yes, they will be, but not through the in-game Store. iPhone Trainers will have to use a specialised website to redeem their Pokémon GO codes.
