Exclusive New Pokémon GO Feature Comes to Explorers - Routes Creation
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!
