Pokemon Go developers have collaborated with Gucci and The North Face to bring a set of limited edition avatar items to the game – here’s how to get them.

Niantic’s popular mobile app Pokemon Go regularly puts on limited-time events based around special occasions such as a movie release, a season such as Halloween or Christmas, or a new Generation arriving in the game.

But this latest event is rather unique. Instead of celebrating a holiday or a specific Pokemon, the game has now teamed up with designer brands Gucci and The North Face to offer a collection of fresh avatar items.

Pokemon Go players will be able to dress their avatar in a range of t-shirts, backpacks, and hats from the designer collaboration. They’ll only be around for a limited time, making them a rare addition to your wardrobe.

So how do you get them? Well, originally, players had to pay a visit to a Gucci pop-up shop in real life. Traveling far distances simply isn’t an option for most people right now, so Niantic have released a code meaning everyone can get the new avatar items.

The code you’ll need to enter is GXSD5CJ556NHG. You can redeem this code by scrolling to the bottom of the in-game shop, or by visiting this link and signing into your Pokemon Go account.

Alternatively, if you want to get your avatar items the old-school way, you’ll need to pay a visit to a Gucci Pin, like the one found by Reddit user lilmonstershiv in Sloane Street in London below. You’ll be looking for a The North Face x Gucci logo.

Where to find Gucci Pins in Pokemon Go

In order to get the Gucci x The North Face items in the game, players must visit locations known as Gucci Pins – these are special pop-up shops in select parks and stores around the world.

Unfortunately for some, this means you’ll need to be in a major city like London or New York City to get your hands on the avatar items. See if there’s a Gucci Pin located near you in the list below.

Some people on Reddit have argued that releasing a limited-edition collection that requires players to travel to a specific location might not be the best idea right now. Hopefully, everyone remains safe and considerate.

Call of Duty

MrDalekJD shares his biggest wish for Warzone after BOCW Season 1

MrDalekJD has opened up on his biggest wishes for Call of Duty: Warzone in the future on the CharlieIntel podcast, including more storytelling and a new map.

Jon ‘MrDalekJD’ Hutchinson is a beloved figure in the Call of Duty scene. Even though his content revolves around Zombies, he’s played the game for many years now, and the community values his opinions.

So, when asked on the CharlieIntel podcast what he’d like to see happen from Warzone in the future, people were listening. Spoiler alert, it’s in line with what most other players hope to see too.

MrDalekJD is known for his videos on Call of Duty: Zombies.

“The thing with Warzone is they [got] pretty good, well it seemed at the time, really good at telling an underlying story that was being slowly unraveled every season,” he said. “It was all to do with the rockets and Bunker 11 and Bunker 10 and all that. It was amazing.”

“I think if they just continue with that, that’s enough to keep me happy,” he added. “But I do think we are due for a new map. I love Verdansk to pieces. It’s a fantastic map. Massive props to Infinity Ward and Raven on that because it’s incredible.”

“But I think it is time for Treyarch to step in and bring in a new Cold War-themed Warzone map,” he said. It’s something that most players want and expect, and it seems like it’s only a matter of time before it happens.

MrDalekJD isn’t alone in his views, especially when it comes to wanting a new map. Verdansk has been fantastic, but it’s become a little stale to veteran players, and the show must go on.

Black Ops Cold War has already been out for several months now. So, a new Warzone map can’t be too far away. However, there still has been no official word on when we can expect it.

Until then, all we can do is sit back, relax, and twiddle our thumbs while we wait.
