Android Players Will Receive Special Sponsored Gift in Pokémon GO from Google Play

Pokemon GO Fest 2021 may be offering some in AND out of game perks for Pokemon GO players.

Google Play is the official sponsor of Pokemon GO Fest 2021 and certain players will be eligible for benefits from its subsidiary, Youtube.

The perk? Youtube Premium which gives users YouTube and YouTube Music ad-free and also offline play. This offer would last three months but we aren’t sure yet who counts as an “eligible player” but were told that there would be more news later this week on this.

On Day 1 of Pokémon GO Fest 2021, Android phone users can get a free sponsor gift with the following: one Incense, one Super Incubator, and 30 Ultra Balls. Super Incubators are rarely given out like this so it’s a nice item to snag for free.

Check out the post below for more details.


We’re excited to welcome Google Play as the official sponsor of Pokémon GO Fest 2021! Read on to learn more about the exclusive perks and surprises you can look forward to.
