Pokemon Go Power Up PokeStops and Gyms Feature

Trainers, new details about the Power Up PokeStops and Gyms feature are revealed and appears like we will be able to level up PokeStops and Gyms through AR scans and reach different levels and rewards.

A new Pokemon Go feature that allows players to Power Up PokeStop and Gym is on the way and all players will get the bonuses at these PokeStops or Gyms.

We can level up a PokeStop or Gym through AR scans and reach Level 1, 2, and 3. Each level has different rewards, and there are different bonuses for each level up.

Here is everything we know about the new Power Up feature.

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. Every time I try to do the AR scanning at a gym for the reward it offers, it just glitches out on me an never really gets to the scanning/recording part. Rather, there’s bugs existing in that idea already.

    So honestly, unless I can somehow get to level 2 conveniently for the Buddy Hearts, this really doesn’t pique my interest.
