In the build up to GO Fest 2020, Niantic have been asking Pokemon Go trainers to channel their inner Detective Pikachu. Over the last week trainers have been asked to decipher a code which would be a redeemable Pokemon Go promo code.
The official Twitter account has been sharing these clues on a regular basis. In total there are 13 to work out with each of them corresponding to a letter within the promo code.
Clues and answers
The 13 clues and respective answers are as follows:
- This league of GO Battle League was introduced on March 27, 2020 - Ultra

Code not working

- Premium Battle Pass x2
- Super Incubator x2
- Incense x2
- Star Piece x2
