AR Mapping tasks launch in Pokémon GO today

A new set of tasks for trainers

Pokemon GO continues to push forward into new territory, this time with AR Mapping tasks. These tasks will give players are whole new way to play, and the option is open to Level 20 trainers and up starting today. Read full details on this new feature below.

An exciting feature is coming! You can soon experience Pokémon GO in a whole new way with AR Mapping tasks.

Certain PokéStops will have a special design indicating that you’ll receive an AR Mapping task when you spin them! The task will require you to complete an action either at the PokéStop where you received the task or at another PokéStop within a certain radius. Complete the task by heading on over to the AR scanning screen and exploring the area around you. This task will count as your daily Field Research task.

Trainers level 20 and up will have access to this new feature beginning on Tuesday, October 20, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PDT (GMT −7). This feature will not be available to Niantic Kids accounts at launch. In the future, parents will have the option to toggle this feature on for Niantic Kids accounts. Stay tuned for updates on when that option will become available.

We’re excited for the future of AR in Pokémon GO and hope you are, too. Let’s GO!
