There have been no additional specifics released, so it’s unclear how Ed Sheeran will appear in Pokémon Go. The most straightforward explanation is that he composed and performed music for the game. What are the chances? Ed is, in any case, on his way. He’s worked on other projects before, such as Game of Thrones and Rise of Skywalker, but those were all acting roles, not game development.
Niantic revealed new Safari Live Event in-person dates in September, which was the most recent Pokémon Go update. They were planned to take place in 2020, however they were postponed owing to the COVID-19 epidemic. Niantic had planned to decrease the interaction radius of PokeStops and Gyms connected to the pandemic, therefore Pokémon Go was also in the headlines. Following fan backlash, Niantic reversed course and chose to keep the interaction radius at 80 meters instead of 40.
