A surprising collaboration has been announced, and it is between Pokemon GO and the famously known, Grammy-winning singer and songwriter, Ed Sheeran.
Starting on Monday, November 22nd, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. PST (GMT-8) there will be a special event where we will be able to listen to Ed’s songs from his new album titled “=” in the in-game News. The songs are the following:
- “Bad Habits”
- “Overpass Graffiti” – this song will be playing every night in the Pokemon GO app during the event:
- “Thinking Out Loud”
- “First Times”
Ed Sheeran’s go-to Pokemon are Water-type Pokemon, so to celebrate this, Niantic will host an event with all Water-type first-partner Pokemon that are available in the app at this moment and if you take a snapshot every day during these few days, you will have a surprise. The Pokemon that will be appearing more frequently in the wild during the celebratory event are:
- Totodile (plus Shiny)
- Mudkip (plus Shiny)
- Piplup (plus Shiny)
- Oshawott (plus Shiny)
- Squirtle wearing sunglasses (plus Shiny)
Yes, Squirtle with sunglasses is making its comeback in the game, and we can not wait to get our hands on it! It will be featured as an encounter from Field Research Tasks too.

There will be Water-type inspired stickers available in the in-game shop, from opening gifts or spinning Pokestops.
