Pokemon GO Frappuccino: The Starbucks Drink You Must Try
In light to the recent reveal about the partnership between Niantic and Starbucks, the coffee chain came up with a special drink. It's called Pokemon GO Frappuccino, a drink specifically crafted for the fans of the hit mobile game. And be warned, it's available for a limited time only.
According to CNN, Starbucks has recently announced a new addition to their mouthwatering menu. The drink is basically of frozen raspberry wtih a twist of blackberry flavor, a take on the store's famous Vanilla Bean Frappuccino. It's considered a special beverage, as it's made simply for the game.
It's worth noting, though, that Pokemon GO fans can acquire the aforementioned drink for a limited time only. The titular coffee chain is said to make it available for a certain period of time. Apart from that, this can only be bought at store locations that are considered Gyms and/or PokeStops.
The publication states that the Frapuccino will be sold on around 7,800 Starbucks outlets (of all its US locations). This one here is considered as a move to lure more players into playing the still-popular Augmented Reality game.
Pokemon GO, after its release, became a worldwide hit. Lots of players across the world jumped into the journey of catching monsters in the wild. However, in the past few months, its player pool significantly declined. Among the many reasons is the title's lack of key features, something that would make an interesting endgame content.
With the inclusion of Starbucks in the picture, Niantic is hoping to bring the numbers up. That perhaps, in one way or another, the events the studio and the coffee shop will introduce will be enough to bring excitement. But of course, only time can tell. The Pokemon GO Frappuccino is a good start, though.

The news, which was announced earlier this year, detailed that Netflix would be raising prices across all of its plans by 13 to 18 percent.
