Pokemon Go, created by Niantic, has seen enormous market success since its release in 2016. Since then, the Pokemon Company has made an effort to increase the number of its users by planning a variety of social gatherings that players may attend to gain exclusive rewards and catch rare Pokemon for their collections. The business has now teamed up with well-known pop musician Ed Sheeran for a momentary in-game event in Pokemon Go.
After the pop star initially teased the collaboration on social media, Niantic just published an official blog post to give more information about the upcoming in-game event starring Ed Sheeran. The event will begin on November 22 (Monday), run for a week, and then come to a finish on November 30.
Pokemon Go fans will be able to attend a special Sheeran concert during the brief event, where he will sing songs from his most recent album, titled (Equal). Songs like Perfect, Shivers, Bad Habits, Thinking Out Loud, and others will be performed during the show. Niantic hasn’t yet made the special concert’s format public, though. As a result, it might be a previously recorded video of Sheeran performing the songs or a video game performance by the artist’s 3D avatar. Players will be able to view the performance in Pokemon Go’s News section throughout the event, according to Niantic.
Additionally, during the brief event, gamers will have the opportunity to get a special edition sweater for their virtual selves. Moreover, throughout the duration of the event, Overpass Graffiti by Sheeran will play every night in the Pokemon Go virtual world.
Additionally, as Ed Sheeran enjoys Pokemon of the water type, players will run into Totodile, Mudkip, Oshawott, and Piplup more frequently. Additionally, if you’re fortunate, you might run into a Froaki and a rare Squirtle wearing sunglasses in the wild.
Now, it’s important to note that Niantic is working with a pop musician for the first time to create an in-game event for Pokemon Go. These kinds of events are frequently held in Epic Games’ Fortnite to entice new players to the game. Niantic is now imitating Epic in order to increase the user base of their immensely popular augmented reality game Pokemon Go.
