Trainers, due to New Zealand’s level 4 full lockdown, Niantic and Pokemon Go are bringing back the increased interaction distance.
The Pokemon Go community, including myself, were not very happy when they removed the increased PokeStop distance, but now, due to the recent situation in New Zealand, they’re bringing back the interaction distance and reinstating the previous bonuses.
Trainers, due to New Zealand’s recent move to Alert Level 4, we are rolling back the Explorer Bonuses in New Zealand and reinstating the previous bonuses.

Back on August 1, 2021, Niantic and Pokemon Go reverted the PokeStop interaction radius to the standard distance and the player base was not very happy about that. Players have stopped playing the game, not spending any real money on it, and it seems like this does not go well for them and decided to bring back the increased PokeStop distance.
The Pokemon No Day and Hear Us Niantic “campaign” reached a lot of players and many, including myself, are supporting the “movement.” Hopefully, they will bring back the increased PokeStop and Gym distance in the U.S. too.
