Pokémon Go to add daily bonuses 'soon' to get you even more addicted (Update: rolling out now)
Head to the Play Store to grab the update!
Original post (11/2): Been playing Pokémon Go but wish there was something that could make you play the augmented reality game every single waking day? Developer Niantic Labs hears your pleas and has responded with a plan to offer daily bonuses for players in the near future.
In a blog post, Niantic says that “soon” players who catch a new Pokémon every day will get a daily bonus of 500 XP and 600 Stardust. If the player catches a new Pokémon every day for seven days straight, they will get an additional bonus of 2,000 XP and 2,400 Stardust. Niantic added that if a player catches a Pokémon at any time on Tuesday during their local time, they will be eligible to claim the next daily bonus on Wednesday at 12 a.m. in their local time zone.
In addition, if players go to a PokéStop and spin the Photo Disc every day, they will get a daily bonus of 500 XP, plus “a number of additional items”, If they accomplish this task every day for the next seven days, they will get an additional 2,000 XP bonus, plus “a greater number of additional items.”
There’s no word on when these new bonuses will be added to Pokémon Go, but we would imagine it will be a part of the game at any time. If you’ve stopped playing the game, do you think these new daily bonuses will get you started again?
