But they need to be warned because there are scammers waiting to pounce on those who lack promo code knowledge related to the event.
The Pokemon GO Solstice Event started on June 13 and will last up to June 20. Spawn rates of Ice-type and Fire-type Pokemon will increase at this time making fans vulnerable to any shenanigans of the scammers. The numbers of scammers are small but still significant and they plan to take advantage of the lack of promo code knowledge of many fans to their advantage.
First, the unsuspecting fans should understand the Basic Pokemon GO Promo Code Facts. Promo codes are used to redeem items used in the game such as Poke balls, Lucky Eggs, Lure models and many more.

Gamers Must First Investigate Before They Act
If Pokemon GO Solstice Event gamers receive codes that deviate from these characteristics, they should not act right away. They need to verify where it came from and who sent it before they do anything that will result in them being cheated or hoodwinked.
How Scammers Fool The Innocent
Scammers can use the code delivery system to lure unsuspecting gamers by offering codes in exchange for digital crypto-currencies such as Bitcoin and others. They will use the codes to prove that they are doing real and legit transactions during the Pokemon GO Solstice Event. This is entirely possible because these scammers have a way of getting one code instantly from existing portals like Sprint.
