Pokemon Go update rumored to take place on Pearl Harbor Day, December 7th

Pokemon Go update rumored to take place on Pearl Harbor Day, December 7th
The other day, we told you that the next big update for Pokemon Go will take place next month. The new features being added are some of the most eagerly awaited by players and include the ability to trade Pokemon with rival trainers. Players will also be able to take other trainers on in player vs. player battles. In addition, 100 new Pokemon will be added to the game along with a tier of Legendary Pokemon. And raising Pokemon babies could replace hatching eggs.

A new leak reveals that the date that Niantic will be offering the update is December 7th. But when you hear where this tip came from, you'll agree that it should be taken with many, many grains of salt. The tip comes from a Starbucks employee who supposedly received email about a tie-up between the coffee purveyor and Pokemon Go developer Niantic.

The email suggests that Niantic will drop Lures at every Starbucks. In addition, there will be some Pokemon related Frappuccino offered on December 7th as well. And while it is not Pokemon related, it appears that there will be a tie in with Verizon from December 2nd to the 4th. Also, note the misspelling of "Pokemon" in the email, although that doesn't necessarily mean that the memo is a fake.

Eager Pokemon Go players will have to wait until December 7th, and hope that this tip is the real thing.
