Who said that you can’t get infected with COVID-19 through the Pokémon Go augmented reality game? This is exactly what the developer Niantic seems to have had in mind when it decided to bring facemasks for the players. Therefore, players now have the option of wearing a facemask in-game, just like everybody does in real life nowadays.
Facemasks are even available for free via Pokémon Go’s in-game style shop. Therefore, you shouldn’t hesitate to grab one if you’re among the fans of the game. Even Pikachu’s superpowers are defenseless against a pandemic of COVID-19’s magnitude.
Train your Pokémon while wearing a mask
Pokémon GO focuses on both searching for those pocket monsters in real life, as well as getting them involved in battles after training them. You’ll have to do all of these while getting your character to wear a facemask in-game.
Get ready for an all-new Pokémon experience! Pokémon GO opens a universe of Pokémon to find, catch, trade, and battle on your iPhone or Android device! With Pokémon GO, you’ll discover Pokémon in a whole new world—your own! Pokémon GO will use real location information to allow players to experience catching, trading, and battling Pokémon.
Pokemon GO became even more interesting along with the 0.189.1 update that recently began to roll out for the players. As many people had expected, a Haloween Logo will start greeting the players, and there’s plenty of other new stuff.
Galarian Yamask and his evolution Runerigus are also added to Pokemon GO. Runerigus is both a Ground and Ghost Pokémon that was introduced in the 8th generation. Galarian Yamask, on the other hand, evolves when the player travels under the stone bridge in Dusty Bowl. Yamask has to take at least 49 HP damage without fainting.
In the end, you must keep in mind that wearing a facemask in-game won’t protect you against the SARS-CoV-2 virus in real life.
