Pokemon GO Gen 2 Release Leaked By Starbucks Employee?

gen 2 release

The Pokemon GO subreddit is rife with activity, as what seems to be like an official leaked internal e-mail by a Starbucks employee has given away the date for Gen 2 release.

The supposed email was sent as preparation for upcoming events and promotions by the coffee giant.

The email goes on to explain:

“Pokeman – 12/7 Launch of Pokeman Version 2… Starbuck stores will be a part of [missing] comes into the store: Pokeman Frappuccino (recipe to be communicated)

  • Lures will be dropped at all SBUX stores that will provide even more direct [missing] January / February”

On the typo of Pokeman instead of Pokemon, the employee said:

“I work at Starbucks and this is one of the most recent updates we received from corporate. Now, it’s hard to say whether or not this specifically refers to Generation 2 (although what else could it mean?), whether or not Starbucks and Niantic are partnered up, or if this will even be pushed out on the date specified (things don’t always go to plan). However, it all makes sense to me, but this would be a huge update. Based on the description of the event, it would require Niantic to put a Pokestop at every Starbucks. Lastly, I realize this may seem strange, especially with the “Pokeman”, but it’s a real email and I can send proof to the mods if required. Regardless, this isn’t anything concrete and pretty vague, and no other information was given to us. As a huge fan of Pokemon and Pokemon Go, I couldn’t NOT share the news with everyone. Fingers crossed that it’s gonna happen!”

There probably won’t be any official verification of this information from either Niantic or Starbucks, but if there is truth to it, and it is a big IF, we are only a few weeks away from Gen 2 being released!! Excited yet?
