A new Pokemon GO and Verizon partnership is now available that lets trainers participate in special limited research and claim unique rewards. This event is free for all Verizon customers but it will only be available for a limited time during the new Season of Light.
While the rewards may not be as exciting as the encounters and items available for completing Season of Light special research and other seasonal tasks, Verizon customers will be able to stock up on Mega Energy and other useful items. You may even encounter a shiny Pokemon along the way! Here’s how to start Verizon Partner Research in Pokemon GO and how to complete all of the research tasks.
How to Get Verizon Partner Research in Pokemon GO
To unlock Verizon Partner Research in Pokemon GO, you must first claim your unique code from the My Verizon app. Follow these steps to get your code.
- Open the My Verizon app.
- Go to the Verizon Up section of the app.
- Select the Pokémon GO Partner Research offer to receive your code.
This offer is only available for Verizon customers in the United States, so non-Americans are sadly left out this time. Once you claim your code, you can redeem it on the Pokemon GO offer redemption page. You can redeem the code any time after September 1 at 9:00 AM local time, which is when the Season of Light begins, but the research will only be available until November 30 at 9:00 PM local time once claimed.
