There is a Pokémon Go Twitch code giveaway this week for the 2022 Pokémon World Championships - and with time-limited research up for grabs, you won't want to miss it!
Codes will be given away throughout the event, and though they must be redeemed quickly in Pokémon Go, the good news is you'll have multiple opportunities across all three days to get one.
This page explains the various Pokémon Go Twitch code giveaway times as part of the wider Pokémon World Championships Twitch schedule.

How Pokémon Go Twitch codes work
During the World Championships stream, the official Pokémon Go account will be regularly posting a code in the Twitch chat for you to redeem.
- The Pokémon Go Twitch code giveaway has finished for Friday. While this page will not be updated with new codes, the giveaway will continue on Saturday between 9am and 4pm UK time through the Pokémon Go Twitch channel. Tune in and check the chat throughout the day!
Codes from the chat will unlock the Team Building research quest, and must be redeemed within the hour of being shared. There are details on how to do this with our how to redeem promo codes explainer.
As well as the above, there is a code to be redeemed for event-specific avatar items. This will expire at the end of Sunday, once the event ends so be sure to redeem before then: WRGUZRVKRR2M3.
Previous expired codes (Friday):
- QAVH6MXRZ3XU3 (released 9am UK time on Friday)
- G7DW52LCKFTVW (released 10am UK time on Friday)
- WRGUZRVKRR2M3 (released 11am UK time on Friday)
- 6J67JEDMQF8D6 (released 12pm UK time on Friday)
- 8TXBLRC24MQC3 (released 1pm UK time on Friday)

- 4YW5Z4EB6RV8U (released 4pm UK time on Thursday)
If a code doesn't work, you'll need to get a new code released on the next hour (or, if the event has ended, the next day). Also, you can only redeem one code - and all codes unlock the same Team Building quest. Finally, Niantic has said it may experience issues with codes being redeemed due to volume - so if that happens, try again shortly.
With the bot spamming a code non-stop, hopefully it all works for you. The very start of the stream had a confusing rollout, however - with a lot of spam in the chat and no codes until half an hour after Niantic's advertised time.
25,000 watching and the chat is a mess, with people either spamming !pokecode or trying to link their account to the bot. As far as I can tell, 20 minutes in and no Pokémon Go Twitch codes yet? pic.twitter.com/BJYa2dlClL— Matthew Reynolds @ EGX (@Crazyreyn) August 18, 2022
Now, however, it's hard to miss a code - and as best as we can tell, redemption is going well. Enjoy the quest!
Currently live is the Fashion Week event, and along with it the debut of Mareanie and Toxapex. Recently, we've seen the arrival of Season of Light and special research quest A Cosmic Companion. Elsewhere, be sure to use Daily Adventure Incense for the chance of encountering Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos and Galarian Moltres. There's also a new special research quest - A Mysterious Incense. Finally - don't forget about the new Prime Gaming rewards every fortnight.
