Pokémon GO YouTube Premium free trial: eligible countries, how to claim, and more

Pokémon GO Fest 2021 is offering a host of bonuses, from what seems like a thousand legendary Pokémon GO raid bosses to the exclusive Pokémon GO Fest 2021 Special Research. However, one of the Pokémon GO Fest 2021 bonuses that is flying under the radar, so to speak, is the Pokémon GO YouTube Premium free trial. 

Players who attend GO Fest 2021 can access three months of the premium subscription service free of charge, giving a lovely ad-free viewing experience for a quarter of a year. It’s a good deal, but it can be a little fiddly to actually redeem. That’s where we come in.

Can I access the Pokémon GO YouTube Premium free trial in my country?

The Pokémon GO YouTube Premium free trial is only available for players in the USA, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, and Singapore.

What is YouTube Premium?

YouTube Premium is a premium subscription service for YouTube that allows you to watch as many videos as you want without adverts popping up.

Whether you enjoy checking out the likes of hardcore grinder Brandon Tan or the PvP battles of Zyonik, watching through YouTube Premium still grants creators their ad money, but it comes from your subscription rather than advertising revenue.

You also get unlimited access to YouTube Music, the ability to download videos to play on the go, and the bonus of videos continuing to play even when you open another app.

The Pokémon GO free trial gives you three months of access to the premium service, which would usually cost $11.99 a month.

How do you access your Pokémon GO YouTube Premium free trial?

The best part of this offer is that you don’t even need to buy a Pokémon GO Fest 2021 ticket to be eligible for the free trial! It’s open to anyone who hasn’t had a free trial or regular account of YouTube Premium before - so new users only. Unfortunately, this does include YouTube Premium’s predecessors: YouTube Red or Google Play Music.

If you’re eligible, it’s as simple as clicking this link to access the free trial. 

Remember to cancel it before your three months are up, or you will be charged going forwards!
