Pokémon Go players can dress their avatars up like the trainers from Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, thanks to a giveaway that’s now live in the mobile game.
Ahead of this Friday’s release of the Nintendo 3DS titles, Pokémon Go players can pick up free outfits that are directly inspired by the stars of Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. For girls, there’s a sun hat, sandals, shorts and a nice, flowery tank top to pick up; guys have new sneakers, shorts, a bucket hat, a tank and, for some reason, leggings to throw on.
This is the first time that Niantic and The Pokémon Company have used Pokémon Go to promote an upcoming Pokémon game. Even when Pokémon’s popularity was at a fever pitch last fall between Pokémon Go’s release and the launch of Pokémon Sun and Moon, the companies kept the games separate. But ever since a Mimikyu-styled hat appeared in Pokémon Go over Halloween, it’s clear that Niantic is willing to reference the current generation of games even if we can’t catch any of the Alola region’s monsters yet. Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon make it's debut on Pokémon Go Nov. 17.
