App credit for iOS and Android devices

Niantic has had the app since November 2021 Pikmin bloom. Personally, I used them casually for a while to motivate myself to go for a walk. But I also know people who have familiarized themselves with the game mechanics and followed the individual tasks and challenges of the mobile game with great interest. If you know someone who likes Pikmin Bloom, you can give them credit so that in-app purchases are no longer a problem. The same thing exists both for iOS as well as most for Android. It can then also be used for other games such as Pokémon Go, Monster Hunter Now and everything else.
