Pokemon Go Routes Exclusive Early Access Granted to Selected Explorers

Trainers, Niantic and Pokemon Go started working on the new Routes features, and a selected group of Explorers is getting early access. What is it? How does it work? What are the benefits? Well, it looks like we have to wait for an official announcement.

Niantic and Pokemon Go are sending invitations to some Explorers to test the new Routes feature. The same players can share their experience with the new feature, but won’t be able to share it before they launch the Routes globally.

Here is the full discussion, thanks to Wayfarer Community:

“Hello Explorers,

We have some exciting news that is nothing like what you have seen before in the Wayfarer Community. As we continue to find ways to highlight our community across Niantic, sharing how amazing your contributions are, we wanted to include a select number of you in a very exclusive feature launching in Pokémon GO that’ll take Wayspots to a new level.

As soon as today, we’re inviting a select group of Explorers, like yourself, that play Pokémon GO to be the first to try this feature before it launches globally. While we can’t reveal the full details just yet, we can promise you this new, immersive experience allows you to build your own adventure and share it with the world!

This new feature—called Routes—allows you to create and publish pre-set paths for other Trainers to follow. Show off your favorite local vista, take Trainers to the best spots to catch Pokémon, or lead others on a restaurant tour of your town. The possibilities are endless!

Select Explorers that play Pokémon GO have been granted exclusive early access to Routes, so they’ll be able to access this feature starting today! To begin, open Pokémon GO and navigate to your Trainer Profile. Locate the new Created Routes section, then tap the Create New Route button. You will then be able to view the tutorial and get started!

You can view the tutorial again by tapping the question mark icon at the top-left corner of the screen while creating a Route. Your contributions will have a direct impact on the worldwide launch of this feature, and your input can help us refine certain details. By creating Routes, you ensure your Pokémon GO community has a robust experience at launch.

Selected Explorers who participate during the early-access period may be selected to have their experience amplified on our official social media channels once Routes has launched globally. Not only will your contributions directly help your local Pokémon GO community, but we also hope that by highlighting your contributions, we can inspire our community the world over!

This new feature will be rolling out to more and more Explorers leading up to global launch. This will include Explorers who have been a member since March 1, 2023, so keep your eyes on that inbox! Thank you for being a part of Routes early access and helping make Pokémon GO the best it can be!

Check out the conversation here!

Safe Exploring!”

More info is coming soon, so stay tuned.
