7-Eleven Japan has just announced that the collaboration between the convenience store and Pokémon GO — which saw over 19,000 Pokéstops added to the stores all over Japan — will end on Sunday, October 31st. All of the Pokéstops will be removed from the game by the early morning (Japan time) of November 1st.
The collab has existed since April 2017, and we have no information as to why it’s ending four years later, but with the game winding down and Niantic removing features, it could just be a good time for 7-Eleven to dip.
Niantic is currently working on a new AR mobile game involving Pikmin, which a lucky few were able to preview earlier this year.
