The Pokémon GO Verizon Event details the collaboration between Pokémon GO and the American telecommunications company Verizon. There will be Verizon-sponsored Research and cosmetics in Pokémon GO for players in the United States, with more events planned in the future. Here's what we can expect from this sponsorship.

Pokémon GO Verizon Event Details

The Verizon collaboration kicked off with a timed Special Research event. The Special Research event was ticketed, and could only be accessed by using the Verizon Up app. Bulbasaur, Charizard, Squirtle, Pikachu, Unown V, Unown Z, Sableye, Patrat, Minccino and Ferroseed saw increased spawns during the Research event.

This Research has already concluded, but there are still other Verizon goodies you can get your hands on and events to play in the future.

Signing into the Verizon Pokémon GO page will get you an exclusive in-game Verizon Mask and Verizon Hoodie avatar item. You can claim these until the end of the year, 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 31. There will be more items coming in the future.

All players will get a Verizon-sponsored gift upon spinning their first PokéStop or Gym of the day.

Some Verizon stores in the United States will be specially designated Stops that can be spun for Sponsored Field Research tasks. Verizon stores will also host Legendary Raid events in 2021.

The Pokémon Virizion is nowhere to be found during this sponsorship yet, which is a missed opportunity to be honest.
