Update: It’s now available in the US.
It seems as though The Pokemon Company is gearing up to release a brand new smartphone app which is titled, Pokemon Pass. As the name implies, it seems to be a simple way for the The Pokemon Company to distribute various Pokemon to fans. The app will allow users to scan QR codes to initially get Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Eevee! Marketing for the Pokemon Pass was spotted in Target by Twitter user @Tsukento and the messaging states that the promotion will be begin on 11th May, so the app is sure to either launch on that specific date or just before. However, The Pokemon Company have yet to announce the app.
