BASKING RIDGE, N.J. - As Pokémon GO swiftly approaches its fifth anniversary, Verizon Wireless is opening its doors to Pokémon GO Trainers like never before — and we mean that in the best and most literal sense possible.

Starting today, players of the highly popular game Pokémon GO can visit one of thousands of Verizon stores across the U.S. to unlock exclusive in-game content and get access to special events, including limited-edition giveaways and scheduled raids for a chance to catch legendary Pokémon1. We're also giving Trainers who visit our stores an exclusive bundle of 2x Premium Raid Passes, 1x Lucky Egg, 1x Incense and 20x Poké Balls.

Here’s how Pokémon GO trainers can get in on the action.

  1. Visit a nearby Verizon retail location (tip: you can check within the Pokémon GO app to see if it’s a Gym or PokéStop)
  2. Speak with a Verizon rep to learn where to scan
  3. Scan a QR code with your phone’s camera and follow on-screen instructions
  4. Register and get the bundle2

Trainers do not need to be a Verizon customer to participate. All Pokémon GO fans are encouraged to simply visit a participating Verizon store today. More information on raids will be shared ahead of the following dates:

  • July 4, 2021
  • July 11, 2021
  • July 25, 2021
  • July 31, 2021
  • August 4, 2021

Visit a nearby Verizon retail location and remember to use the Pokémon GO app to see if it’s a Pokémon Gym or a PokéStop and get in on the fun.
