The Pokemon Pass app is available to download now, for free, on iOS and Android. By using your phone’s camera, you can scan QR codes that will give you Pokemon related rewards.

Location services must be turned on to use the app. Furthermore, you will need a Pokemon Trainer Club account. Many Pokemon fans will already have one as this was the initial login method for Pokemon Go.

Shiny Pikachu and shiny Eevee

The first rewards being offered are a shiny Pikachu or shiny Eevee. These come in Nintendo Switch’s latest Pokemon game, Pokemon Let’s Go.

Which of Pikachu or Eevee you will receive depends on which version you have. Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu owners will receive an Eevee and Let’s Go Eevee owners a Pikachu. Both will be received at level 10 and each have the following move sets:

  • Pikachu: Thunderbolt, Double Kick, Double Team and Thunder
  • Eevee: Double-Edge, Iron Tail, Helping Hand, Facade

Location-specific: Target

However, rewards can only be received in a specific locations and times. In order to receive the shiny Pikachu or shiny Eevee, Pokemon trainers must visit a US-based Target store. Full conditions below:

  • US Target store
  • Between May 11, 2019 and June 23, 2019

In addition to this, if Pokemon trainers visit one of these Target stores between the time of 11am to 2pm local time on May 11, additional rewards will be given. These include a Pokemon Movie poster and a special Psyduck promo card for the Pokemon Trading Card game.

The rewards from the Pokemon Pass app are currently only available in the United States. There has been no word as to if, and when, the rewards will be available in other countries.

Transfer shiny Pokemon

One of the more frequently-asked questions already is whether the shiny Pikachu or shiny Eevee can be transferred from Pokemon Let’s Go to Pokemon Go.

Unfortunately, transferring between these two games is a one way street whereby Pokemon can only be transferred from Pokemon Go to Pokemon Let’s Go. This means you won’t be able to use these shiny Pokemon on Pokemon Go.

Moreover, Pokemon transferred from Go to Let’s Go can only be transferred once, therefore they can’t be transferred back.

A YouTuber revealed that he was able to afford and buy his dream car worth up to $200k just by buying, selling, and covering Pokemon cards – yes, you read that right!

Although the Pokemon TCG made its debut decades ago in 1997, the Nintendo collectibles have seen an absolute explosion in popularity in 2020. Items once traded by children on school playgrounds for practically nothing can now sell for as much as a house.

Dedicated fans that have been covering the hobby for years such as Australian YouTuber Michael ‘UnlistedLeaf’ Anderson have had their passion rewarded with the Trading Card Game’s recent attention. So much so that the content creator was able to buy a luxury car.

While many popular entertainers have been swept up by the Pokemon card craze that has hit in 2020, YouTubers like Unlisted Leaf have been making videos about the hobby since 2013. On December 4, the content creator revealed that he was able to buy his dream car – a Audi R8 V10 Plus – due his love of the Nintendo RPG.

“It is insane to me that years down the line I am able to get one,” he said. “The craziest part about this whole situation is that I really bought this car with, like, Pokemon cards. If we really boil it down.” The entertainer, who also goes by ‘Ando’, then clarified that he didn’t get any money from his parents or a side job – it was purely from covering the Pokemon collectibles.

“It is 110% all with Pokemon cards. That’s the truth. I literally have been making videos around Pokemon cards for about eight years now. I’ve been collecting Pokemon cards for eight years and like selling a few. Then like I buy a lot. Then I sell a couple more,” the Nintendo fan explained.

UnlistedLeaf revealed that Pokemon cards’ recent explosion in value and popularity also played a hand in being able to afford the luxury vehicle. “Especially with the crazy Pokemon card boom recently, I was able to purchase this car.” he revealed, before he thanked his fans for sticking with him as he covered the Nintendo hobby for eight years.

There is no telling if the craze surrounding the TCG will die down anytime soon. With the Japanese franchise gearing up to celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2021, the sky is the limit. Passionate fans who have dedicated their lives to Trading Card Game are finally starting to reap the rewards.
