The Pokémon Company and Niantic have launched a multi-part collaboration to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Pokémon Go and the 25th anniversary of the Pokémon Trading Card Game

To start the collab, a special Pokémon TCG card themed after Pokémon Go’s Professor Willow is being distributed as a gift with purchases of select Pokémon Go products from the Pokémon Center website. 

The promo card, which is a variant of the classic Professor’s Research Trainer card, features a special code that players can use in order to redeem Special Research in Pokémon Go. The Special Research will feature Meltan, other rare Pokémon, and a ton of bonus items.

Each Professor’s Research Professor Willow promo card has an entirely unique code that can be redeemed on Niantic’s Offer Redemption website. Here are all of the Special Research tasks and rewards that will become available once you do redeem your card starting on July 1.
