There is plenty of news surrounding the wildly popular Pokémon Go game. From teaming up with Sprint to a special promotion at Starbucks, those are just a couple of newsworthy items, including new monsters, that players can look forward to soon.

Head to Sprint

Pretty quick you will be able to head to a Sprint location that will be deemed a PokéStop or Gym. According to Niantic:

…we are thrilled to announce that we are working with Sprint to create a special Pokémon GO experience at over 10,500 Sprint locations around the United States. As part of this collaboration, Sprint, Boost Mobile and Sprint at Radioshack stores will become PokéStops and Gyms, giving you even more places to stock up on Poké Balls and Razz Berries and to battle your friends.
