Pokemon Go developers have collaborated with Gucci and The North Face to bring a set of limited edition avatar items to the game – here’s how to get them.
Niantic’s popular mobile app Pokemon Go regularly puts on limited-time events based around special occasions such as a movie release, a season such as Halloween or Christmas, or a new Generation arriving in the game.
But this latest event is rather unique. Instead of celebrating a holiday or a specific Pokemon, the game has now teamed up with designer brands Gucci and The North Face to offer a collection of fresh avatar items.
Pokemon Go players will be able to dress their avatar in a range of t-shirts, backpacks, and hats from the designer collaboration. They’ll only be around for a limited time, making them a rare addition to your wardrobe.

So how do you get them? Well, originally, players had to pay a visit to a Gucci pop-up shop in real life. Traveling far distances simply isn’t an option for most people right now, so Niantic have released a code meaning everyone can get the new avatar items.
The code you’ll need to enter is GXSD5CJ556NHG. You can redeem this code by scrolling to the bottom of the in-game shop, or by visiting this link and signing into your Pokemon Go account.
Alternatively, if you want to get your avatar items the old-school way, you’ll need to pay a visit to a Gucci Pin, like the one found by Reddit user lilmonstershiv in Sloane Street in London below. You’ll be looking for a The North Face x Gucci logo.
Where to find Gucci Pins in Pokemon Go
In order to get the Gucci x The North Face items in the game, players must visit locations known as Gucci Pins – these are special pop-up shops in select parks and stores around the world.
Unfortunately for some, this means you’ll need to be in a major city like London or New York City to get your hands on the avatar items. See if there’s a Gucci Pin located near you in the list below.

Fashion-lovers will be glad to know that the items available to claim in Pokemon Go will also be available to buy in real life, meaning you can match your avatar’s style with corresponding t-shirts, bags, and hats.
Some people on Reddit have argued that releasing a limited-edition collection that requires players to travel to a specific location might not be the best idea right now. Hopefully, everyone remains safe and considerate.
