Now, the developers behind the hit mobile augmented reality game are running a promotion that will surely entice “Pokemon” fans.
Niantic is giving eight “Pokemon Go” players the chance to be their own in-game Trainer character, Nintendo Life reported. This makes the prize extra special: Trainer characters are those who players go up against in different areas of the in-game map.
