The Pokémon GO x Ed Sheeran collab will also feature an event for all of the Water-type first-partner Pokémon currently available in Pokémon GO as Ed mentioned he always goes for a Water-type starter Pokémon when playing any Pokémon games! This also means that Totodile, Mudkip, Piplup, and Oshawott will all be appearing in the wild a lot more frequently in the next week! You might even run into a Froakie or a Squirtle wearing sunglasses if you’re really lucky!
Take a snapshot every day for an extra bonus and when you complete Field Research tasks, you will have more of a chance to encounter the Squirtle wearing sunglasses Pokémon!
The collaboration event will also offer a new Avatar item (a “=” hoodie), Water-type Pokémon stickers and a one-time free event box that includes: A Lure Module, 20 Pokéballs, 10 Razz Berries, and 10 Pinap Berries.
Don’t miss out on this Perfect collaboration event!
