Pokemon Go teams with Ed Sheeran for an in-game performance
Pokemon Go is partnering with artist Ed Sheeran for a special in-game event. From Nov. 22 to Nov. 30, players will be able to watch a musical performance by Sheeran within the game, and there will be special Pokemon spawns, new stickers and more to enjoy.
The performance will go live at 11 a.m. PT on Nov. 22 and can be found in the game’s News section. According to the official Pokemon Go blog, the performance will include the following songs:
- “Bad Habits”

“Overpass Graffiti” will also replace Pokemon Go’s regular nightly theme throughout the entire event, and there will be a new trainer sweatshirt inspired by Sheeran’s new album, =. To claim it, you’ll need to enter the code VVM87WGMMUZHTB8X before the event ends.
