Pokemon GO, Ingress, and Harry Potter: Wizards Unite all gave players the motivation like never before to venture around the real world, with the promise of rewards around every potential corner. While the developers at Niantic have been throwing a bone for stranded players with discounted items like lures and easier access to online battling, bigger changes are coming.

But let's first discuss how coronavirus is changing Pokemon Go, or more accurately, how Niantic tweaked Pokemon Go elements for players staying at home to curb the spread of coronavirus. In case you are unfamiliar with this game lingo, the Adventure Sync feature records your steps even when the app is running in the background or closed, and rewards you accordingly at the end of each week, depending on the level you are at. find your activity. Pokémon Go Raid Battles will be playable at home.

These updates are expected to land over "the coming days and weeks". To get you started, Niantic is offering up a whopping 50 Great Balls for just 1 PokéCoin! "We're going to make improvements to Adventure Sync so it works even better with indoor movement and activities".

The studio is also working on ways to allow players to virtually visit a real-world location and share the experience with friends.
