Pokémon fans can avail themselves of free Pokécontent, for games like Pokémon Let’s Go, beginning this month. This is thanks to a new mobile app that checks them in at participating locations.

The Pokémon Pass app, for both iOS and Android, is available right now. On May 11, fans can use it to pick up a Shiny Pikachu and a Shiny Eevee for Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu or Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee, when they go to their local Target.

According to a news release, Pokémon Pass (which is free) will notify owners when they’re at “designated retail locations” where they can pick up some freebies. They will need both the app and an account with the Pokémon Trainer Club (also free).

The goodies are picked up by scanning a QR code in-store. Future promotions will involve video game content and “digital stickers and wallpapers.”

Here are the specs on the Shiny Pikachu or Eevee players can snag:

Shiny Pikachu

  • Game: Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!
  • Level: 10
  • Moves: Thunderbolt, Double Kick, Double Team, Thunder

Shiny Eevee

  • Game: Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!
  • Level: 10
  • Moves: Double-Edge, Iron Tail, Helping Hand, Facade

Additionally, those who go to a Target on May 11 between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. local time can get tie-in giveaways for the Detective Pikachu movie — such as a Psyduck promo card for the Pokémon trading card game, and a movie poster.

The next level of puzzles.
