If you keep up with the latest happenings in Pokemon GO, then you’d know all about the new daily bonus feature that’s in the process of being added to the game. What you might not know about, however, is the Pokemon GO daily bonus event that’s happening as we speak.
I’ll forgive you for not knowing about it yet, since Niantic only announced it three hours ago. It’s basically a mini-event to coincide with the release of the daily bonus feature, and will boost the spawn rate of Pokemon, and the number of items obtained from Poke Stops, for the next few days.
Here’s the official word from the Pokemon GO Facebook page:
We are excited to let you know that the new daily bonus feature is rolling out right now. The daily bonuses reward you with XP and Stardust for your first catch of the day, and XP and extra items for your first Photo Disc spin of the day at a PokéStop. You’ll get an even bigger bonus if you complete these actions seven days in a row!
To celebrate this feature, from November 7th to November 11th, you’ll find more Pokémon out in the world. Moreover, PokéStops will grant more items! Yes – this means more Great Balls, and for Trainers that are level 20 and above – more Ultra Balls!
Take advantage of it while you can and explore your neighborhoods with Pokémon GO!
The Pokémon GO team
To reiterate: Daily bonuses are out now. As soon as you receive the update, you’ll be able to start racking up the extra EXP, candy, and items from catching one Pokemon and spinning one Poke Stop every day (with a bonus if you maintain a 7-day streak).
To celebrate the introduction of this feature, Niantic have planned a Pokemon GO daily bonus event that will last for 5 days, and will result in players seeing an increase in Pokemon spawn rates and items from spun Poke Stops.
At this point, it’s too early to tell just how increased the spawn rates are, or how many more items we’ll be receiving by spinning Poke Stops. But if the Halloween event was anything to go by, we’ll probably be pretty spoiled over the coming 5 days.
What do you think of the daily bonuses? And what do you think about this mini-event that’s taking place for the next 5 days? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below!
