Niantic fully details upcoming changes to Pokemon GO temporary bonuses

Niantic has shared some details on upcoming changes to temporary bonuses in Pokemon GO. You can get the full details below.

Over the past few months, we’ve been making temporary changes to Pokémon GO to adapt to the changing global environment. Some of these changes will remain implemented for the foreseeable future, such as the ability to raid remotely, changes to the GO Battle League, and the increased distance at which you can spin Photo Discs at Gyms and PokéStops. We thank you for all your feedback.

The following temporary bonuses will remain to improve Pokémon GO’s overall gameplay experience.

The maximum number of Gifts you can carry in your Item Bag at a time will remain at 20.
You will continue to receive three times the Stardust and XP for your first Pokémon catch of the day.
Incense duration will remain at 60 minutes.

When possible, people are generally encouraged to spend time outside, go on walks, and exercise for their mental and physical health—all while social distancing and abiding by other health and safety recommendations. Starting Thursday, October 1, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PDT (GMT −7), the following temporary bonuses will be modified.

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.
Incubators will be included in more boxes in the in-game shop.

For a summary of active bonuses, keep your eye on the “Special bonuses” section of the Today View! We will continue to monitor these active bonuses and will provide updates as necessary.

Additionally, we’re continuously monitoring the ever-evolving global situation and are working hard to reschedule previously planned live events to 2021. Health and safety are of the utmost importance. Please stay tuned to our official channels for any rescheduling updates.
