If you've basically caught everything you could in Pokemon GO, or got bored of its broken tracker, there's two reasons to re-install or boot up the app again:
One, the tracker's been changed with a landmark-based identifier, so it's going to be easier to find what you're looking for. It is, however, most functional in urban settings, given its reliance on buildings, statues, etc. For those of us out in rural areas... well, guess we'll be making day trips into town.
But the tracker alone isn't worth your while. Not if you're already bored of all the generation one stuff, right?
Good news. Generation Two is coming NEXT WEEK. And you're probably going to find it an easy addition to your daily commute.
The evidence behind this is somewhat circumstantial, relying on a badly written internal memo from Starbucks:
Though it's interestingly corroborated by confirmation of the other deals listed.
It also fits with what's previously known of Niantic Labs' business plan for Pokemon GO. Prior datamining from near its launch indicated strongly that they were planning to have Pokemon GO events tied to sponsors and partnerships, such as McDonald's. Given Starbucks' international prominence, a coinciding between the coffeeshop chain and Pokemon GO's first true expansion inherently sounds like a good idea.
There's also the matter of the new image-based tracker. If the Generation 2 hotspots just "happen" to "coincidentally" be around lure-enabled Starbucks spots, that's a lot of visual advertising built into the game itself.
But heck, why not. Might as well bring your 3DS along as well. Your coffee stop's about to be an Alola-style Pokemon Center.
Who's got an Espeon to trade?
