Japanese restaurant chain to remove all Pokémon GO PokéStops and Gyms in 2024

Trainers, a significant update has come to light that could affect your gameplay experience. The long-standing Japanese fast-food giant, Yoshinoya, has formally terminated its partnership with Pokemon GO. Effective January 1, 2024, all PokéStops and Gyms linked to Yoshinoya stores will be removed from the game.

For those who may not be familiar, Yoshinoya is a multinational fast-food chain primarily known for its gyūdon (beef bowls). Founded in Japan in 1899, the chain lives by the motto “Tasty, low-priced, and quick.” In a collaboration that began in May, Pokemon GO players were treated to a special Timed Research. Players had the opportunity to gather stamps via Yoshinoya’s mobile app, which could be exchanged for a participation ticket in Pokemon GO events.

Yoshinoya has chosen to discontinue all Pokemon GO related promotions. This means that as of January 1, 2024, all in-game PokéStops and Gyms associated with Yoshinoya will be deleted. For players who frequently use these locations for spins and battles, alternative spots will need to be identified.
