One of the most famous pop musicians of the 2000s will be joining Pokémon Go somehow. That person is English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran.
The Ed Sheeran HQ Twitter account has revealed that some sort of crossover between the singer and the Pokémon Go mobile game will be coming soon. The game’s official account subsequently retweeted it with an eyes emoji, confirming the collaboration.

No other details about this have been revealed, so it’s unclear how Ed Sheeran will be in Pokémon Go. The simplest guess would be that he wrote and perform some music for the game. Who knows? In any case, Ed is coming. He’s collaborated on other projects such as Game of Thrones and Rise of Skywalker, but those were acting roles, unlike Pokémon Go.
The last update involving Pokémon Go was back in September when Niantic announced new Safari Live Event in-person dates. They were originally supposed to be held back in 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they were postponed. Pokémon Go was also in the news because Niantic had planned to reduce the interaction radius of PokeStops and Gyms that were related to the pandemic. However, following an outcry from fans, Niantic decided to walk that back and keep the interaction radius at 80 meters instead of 40.
