Because of Starbucks, we know that Niantics was looking to release a new set of Pokemon to the Pokemon Go app but what we did not know was Starbucks role in all of this?
Well, now that Niantics has announced that new Pokemon will be added into the game soon, we are also getting a clearer picture of what Starbucks will be offering. Starting from the 8th of October, 7800 Starbucks shop in the US will be converted into a PokeStop or a Gym.
And to make sure their customers are able to enjoy the full Pokemon experience, Starbuck has also come out with a new drink for their Pokemon Trainers called the Pokemon Go Frappuccino which is basically a vanilla bean frappuccino with raspberry syrup and freeze dried blackberries. It will then be topped with whipped cream.
It might bring in more customers for Starbucks but whether this is enough to bring the players back into the app is a whole other story.
