There has been a lot of news about a Gen 2 release but this update will blow your mind! A Starbucks employee leaked an email that was sent to all Starbucks employees to inform them about a big upcoming promotion. What was revealed?
Niantic is partnering with Starbucks and Generation 2 releases on December 7th.
Before we get ahead of ourselves, take a look at the leaked photo that is said to be a copy of the email below:
One thing that is problematic about the email is that it says “Pokeman” which is totally off. Also, it’s also unknown at this point if “Version 2” is actually Gen 2 or just another big update. There is a lot of mystery at this point but this could potentially be amazing. The Starbucks employee goes into the whole “Pokeman” part of the email and more:
“I work at Starbucks and this is one of the most recent updates we received from corporate. Now, it’s hard to say whether or not this specifically refers to Generation 2 (although what else could it mean?), whether or not Starbucks and Niantic are partnered up, or if this will even be pushed out on the date specified (things don’t always go to plan). However, it all makes sense to me, but this would be a huge update. Based on the description of the event, it would require Niantic to put a Pokestop at every Starbucks. Lastly, I realize this may seem strange, especially with the “Pokeman”, but it’s a real email and I can send proof to the mods if required. Regardless, this isn’t anything concrete and pretty vague, and no other information was given to us. As a huge fan of Pokemon and Pokemon Go, I couldn’t NOT share the news with everyone. Fingers crossed that it’s gonna happen!”
This would be a smart move for both Starbucks and Pokemon Go because it would bring players back to the game and bring more customers to Starbucks. According to Pokemon Go Hub, the release of Gen 2 may not be so far away:
We are waiting for The Silph Road verification, but as one of the Silph Road admins wrote, a mid-December Gen 2 launch would not surprise anyone at this point. It’s not a secret that partners like Starbucks have info on upcoming releases and promotions.
Are we really less than a month away from Gen 2 Pokémon? Better start harvesting Eevee candies just in case!
