The popularity of Pokémon Go has inspired one US Starbucks branch to create its own fun Starbucks drinks inspired by the anime monsters.

The Starbucks is located inside of a Target in Redlands, California and hopes to draw in Pokémon Go players with its unique 'Pokémon Drinks of the Day,' which includes items such as the Charmander Lemonade, the Jigglypuff Refresher and the Poké Ball Frappuccino, which replicates the colors and striped design of the Pokémon Poké Ball with strawberry and vanilla ingredients.

As an augmented reality game, Pokémon Go leads players to physical locations, which many retailers have been quick to take advantage of in the form of location-specific promotions, advertisements and products. In return, retailers may be lucky enough to receive a shoutout from players when they share their adventures.
