Pokemon Go is collaborating with Chatime by converting the stores into PokeStops and Gyms

Niantic has a lot planned for Pokémon Go fans in August. New Legendary Pokémon are coming in raid battles, the Saporro Go Fest is taking place, and bug-type Pokémon are planning to take over. Read more about all these events in our recent article. That’s not all. Trainers will also be privy to another collaboration, one with the famous teahouse chain Chatime. The speciality drink franchise is spread over the world with more than 1,200 stores and soon enough, these will be converted into PokéStops and Gyms.

To start things off, the Chatime stores in UK and Taiwan will be the first to be converted into PokéStops and Gyms. As time passes, other locations around the globe will also get converted. When players visit a Chatime near them, they will be able to catch Pokémon, collect in-game items, and take part in raids and gym battles. All this while enjoying their favourite bubble tea. The partnership translates into the real world as well as players will be able to unlock limited-time deals and new products that Chatime has to offer.

Speaking about their latest collaboration with Chatime, Allan Lo, APAC Brand Partnerships at Niantic, said: “We are very pleased to announce that Chatime has joined Pokémon GO as an Official Partner. We have had many companies join us as official partners, as we have been able to provide opportunities for many players to visit Partner stores shown as ‘PokéStops’ and ‘Gyms’, while enjoying the services and products. Additionally, through location-based and AR experiences at Niantic, we provide additional opportunities for players to go out and discover new things and visit their favorite places. We plan to further contribute opportunities for more people to visit Chatime stores, increase branding, and enhance the overall shopping experience.”

Eager fans in other regions may not have to wait too long either. The rollout will reach Canada in September, Malaysia in November, and Australia in January 2023, with more post that.
