Pokémon news (August 9, Round 2): Pokémon GO / Pokémon Shuffle

Today’s Pokémon news (Round 2!): TOHO becomes the latest Pokémon GO sponsor in Japan, but also…

  • Pokémon Shuffle

Pokémon GO

Before Pokémon GO launched in Japan, it was announced that McDonald’s would a sponsor. Basically, all the McDonald’s restaurants in Japan are either a Gym or a PokéStop, which is something that dramatically increases foot traffic.

And today, a second sponsor for Pokémon GO in Japan was announced: TOHO Cinemas. Similar to the one with McDonald’s, this new sponsorship will see (almost) all TOHO theatres in Japan become PokéStops. Naturally, that doesn’t include the area where movies are screened (so as not to bother people who came to watch movies, not catch Pokémon).

The starting date for this Pokémon GO collaboration will be announced at a later date, via the official website of TOHO Cinemas.
