The North Face x Gucci inspired Pokemon GO trainer avatar items have officially released.

Niantic Labs has decided to showcase that their trainers can be both fierce and fashionable as they hunt for rare Pokemon around their neighborhood. The company's newest collaboration features items inspired by a collection from the popular brands North Face and Gucci. Now, trainers can adapt their look both in and outside the game accordingly.

Here's how to get the collection and look stylish from head to toe.

North Face x Gucci Pokemon GO Avatar Item Collaboration

The collection officially launched on Jan. 4 in select cities, such as New York City, Toronto, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, and more. While this may seem strange, Niantic has explained in an official post on their news blog that there is a method behind the madness.

In order to collect these items for their avatars, trainers will need to visit the Gucci Pins, pop-up locations containing the physical clothing, in-person and spin the PokeStop associated with them. This will unlock the whole collection and allow trainers to wear them—likely while boosting foot traffic in the area.

While a full list of each piece in the collection hasn't directly come to light, Niantic did note that shirts, hats, and backpacks are included. Additionally, the team mentioned these articles are also available for purchase in real life via the Gucci x North Face website. Trainers can locate their closest Pin using a function on the front webpage.

A full list of participating cities can be found on the aforementioned post by Niantic. The release is international with a wide range of continents participating—such as Europe, North and Latin America, Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and Africa.
