‘Pokémon GO’ Event Could be Coming to Starbucks this Week

This week, you could be getting your caffeine and Pokémon GO fix at the same location. Thanks to an internal memo leaked on Reddit by a Starbucks employee, we now know the coffee retailer plans on turning their stores into Pokéstops starting December 8th.

But that’s not all Starbucks has in store for this upcoming promotion. They’ll also be offering an exclusive drink players can “unlock” by locating the Starbucks store they’re visiting within the game itself. The official document describes the Pokémon GO Frappuccino Blended Creme as their standard Vanilla Bean Frappuccino, but with added raspberry syrup and blackberries.

While this news hasn’t been officially confirmed by Starbucks, we’ll know for sure soon, as the document states this event starts when stores open Thursday morning. Thankfully, Pokémon GO’s status as a gamified pedometer should help you burn off those calories gained by one of their sugary drinks.
