Pokemon Go Changes to Bonuses

Trainers, Niantic and Pokemon Go announced that they will be making changes to temporary bonuses, meaning some of them will remain and some will be modified.

Niantic and Pokemon Go are planning to keep the following temporary bonuses:

  • Max number of Gifts in your Bag at a time will stay at 20
  • 3x Stardust and XP for your first catch of the day will stay the same
  • Incense Duration will be 60 minutes

Now, here is the list of changes that will take effect starting from October 1, 2020, at 1 PM PDT:

  • Hatch Distance will return to normal for Eggs
  • The increased effectiveness of Incense will now apply only while walking
  • Your Buddy Pokémon will now bring you Gifts only when you have nearly run out. This will happen only once per day
  • You will still have a higher chance of getting a Gift when you spin a PokéStop. However, you won’t be guaranteed to get a Gift

For last, they confirmed that Incubators will be included in more boxes in the in-game shop.

Hi, gamers! You can call me Mr. DComplex. I'm a gamer, a hardcore gamer. My favorite genres are Action RPG and MMORPG. At the moment I'm using my PC as my only gaming platform, but soon I might get a new PS4 from Angel. Update - Angel did get me a PS4, oh wait, it's the PS4 PRO 1TB!!! Much love bro!


  1. Covid: *still happening*
    Niantic: “Here, go outside and play with a higher chance of interacting with other people who may be infected/spread the infection to get the bonuses you need! Byyeeee!”
    Trainers: . . . well f*ck

  2. I think egg distance should remained lowered..and tne pokemon that spawn from insence should be a middle ground…gifts should be there untill you dont have room..alot of places are still lock down and some people have pre exsiting condition or care for them and need to be more carefull

  3. Not a good idea at all right now. Especially with winter and flu season kicking in also. I say wait till spring see how its fairing and then try the more normal route

  4. Its bull crap. We stayed inside to keep us safe from a pandemic and i paid a crap load of money to play from Home as well. The pandemic has NOT STOPPED IDIOTS. We are still isolating. Screw the game and screw niantic for havi g so little concern for those of us still isolating due to being immunocompromised.
