Deals and specials for Pokémon players from July 22-29

Chandler, Ariz. – As if Pokémon Go players needed another reason to play, 12 merchants in Downtown Chandler are offering deals and specials specifically geared towards players of the app. This week of deals, the ‘Gotta Catch Em All Week’, runs July 22-29.


The area is brimming with Pokémon to catch and the local merchants want to invite the players in to experience their shops and cool down in between adventuring. “We’re a hotspot for catching Pokémon and discovering Pokéstops. You can see people walking the streets and playing throughout the day,” says Karli Ragan, Marketing and Events Manager at Downtown Chandler Community Partnership. “We love the players walking our downtown, and wanted to give them a reason to come into the locally owned establishments,” Ragan says.


Participating merchants range from locally owned eateries, retail stores, and the Chandler Center for the arts. Deals and specials include items like Jello shots (yes, Jello shots) inspired by Pokémon characters, a few dollars off a concert ticket, and a percentage off your purchase. Each discount has it’s own requirement to obtain the discount. Examples include a specific code word, showing proof of catching a certain Pokémon, or simply showing the downloaded app on your smartphone to the cashier. Players can find a list of participating merchants, their specials, and the requirements for the discounts on our website.

“The fun doesn’t stop there,” Ragan says. Following the ‘Gotta Catch Em All Week’ in Downtown Chandler is the Downtown Chandler Pub Crawl on July 30.
