Niantic Labs has just recently concluded its first-ever event for Pokemon Go. The Halloween event proved to be a success, not just in getting more players engaged, but also in bringing up revenue since the sharp decline.
Now, the developer is looking to add more bonuses so trainers won't put down their games just yet.
In a new blog post, the Niantic Labs confirmed the previously leaked addition of Daily Bonuses.
"Trainers will soon be able to receive a bonus for certain daily activities, including catching a Pokemon or visiting a PokeStop once a day. You'll earn a larger bonus if you do this seven days in a row!"
Everyday catch yields 500 XP and 600 Stardust. Doing this for seven straight days will give you 2,000 XP and 2,400 Stardust. The same goes for visiting PokeStops. Daily catch brings 500 XP and additional items, while a week-long catch earns 2,000 XP with "greater" number of additional items.
If that's not enough, then you can also look forward to more variety when it comes to the 'mons you'll be catching. Niantic announced this over at Twitter, which pretty much made everyone's day.
This time, we'll find more than just the usual Rattatas, Pidgeys, and Zubats in the same places where you'll usually find them in. I do wonder what that means though. Are we expecting another change in the nests and spawns? Will they add more spawns in places other than nests? Will this change the rarity of the Pokemon?
Perhaps the better news would be the fact that Pidgeys and Rattatas will no longer hatch from Eggs. And those who have been frustrated with finding Eevees in 10km Eggs can rejoice, as they will now only hatch from 5km Eggs.
That last bit of news is probably the best one for Instinct members like me. I've always liked watching my Eggs hatch—but not when what comes out is a freakin' Pidgey again. I love my team leader to death, but I'm not as found of those birds as he is.
