Niantic the Pokemon Go developer has released the new Promo Codes feature overnight for all the fans. At the moment Niantic has shared a minimum amount of information. Fans hoping for more news might have to wait a little bit.
The Promo codes feature has remained one of the highly anticipated ones over time. Some dataminers were able to find the feature in the game’s master code. However, Niantic never shared anything about this new feature before.
The new Promo codes feature has arrived overnight as part of the Pokemon Go unannounced update from the developer. Niantic has yet to reveal info about their plans for this particular update. So, all those who have been trying to implement the feature by putting in the random codes will know that the Promo Codes feature is still not active fully.
