Sprint CEO Claure hints that the carrier will have a promotional tie-in with Pokemon Go1
From what we can gather, this is all the same promotion for the AR game that we first told you about last month. It is supposed to tie-in with the next big update to the game that will add 100 new Pokemon, Player vs. Player battles, and the ability to make trades to name a few new features. The original rumor mentioned that there would be some sort of tie-in with Starbucks, Pokemon Go and Verizon from December 2nd through the 4th, but that never materialized.
Confirmation that Sprint is involved with a Pokemon Go promotion came today from a tweet written by Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure. The executive said that the carrier will soon have a special announcement directed at Pokemon Go trainers. Considering that this message comes from Claure, there is little reason to doubt that Sprint is planning a big promotional campaign involving the game.
All of the excitement could start as soon as tomorrow, so check in early and often.
Thanks for sending this in!
