McDonalds Might Be Your Next PokeStop Based On These Reports

Nintendo has been fairly reserved about monetizing Pokémon GO despite its successful release. However, if these reports by Gizmondo are to be believed, then we might be getting a cross-marketing Pokémon GO experience with one of the biggest names in the world, McDonald’s.

Spotted by Reddit users, buried within the game’s code is “MCDONALDS” followed by “Sponsor” and “POKEMON_STORE”. You can refer the image below for the actual screenshot of the coding.

While Nintendo has not confirmed any collaboration of sorts with McDonald’s, Niantic CEO John Hanke did allude to possible partnerships with other outlets via “sponsored locations”, which he states are the “second component to our business model at Niantic”.

If the reports are true, then you can start seeing your favourite restaurants or locations to become PokéStops in the near future. Who knows, you might get a MewTwo with McDonald’s Happy Meal.

Pokémon GO is available now on Android and iOS on selected regions. A global rollout has been delayed with no new dates announced.
