Updates to Pokemon Go gameplay 3/30


Today View

The Today View is a new tab that lets you view all ongoing events, Pokemon currently in gyms, and your daily streaks. It can be found in the same area as your Field Research and Special Research button. 

  • Events: The topmost section will show you what events are currently running in the game. If there are multiple overlapping events, then there will be separate cards showcasing each one. (Note that events won’t be visible when the Today View first launches, but they will appear later.)
  • Pokémon in Gyms: Keep tabs on all the Pokémon you have in Gyms. You’ll also be able to see how long your Pokémon have been defending their Gyms, how much motivation your Pokémon have left, which Pokémon have returned that day, and how many PokéCoins you’ve earned through defending Gyms.
  • Streaks: Track your Daily PokéStop Spin and Daily Pokémon Catch Streaks. 
  • Upcoming: Check out what events are coming up at the bottom of the page. Tap to learn more from the in-game News!

Select Field Research tasks from the game that could be difficult to finish from home have been temporarily removed. If you’ve already collected these tasks, you’ll still be able to complete them and receive rewards.

The Team GO Rocket Special Research, “The Shadowy Threat Grows” for the month of March has been extended until the end of April, to allow for more time to finish the tasks and encounter Shadow Entei.

Additional changes to play from home:

  • Improvements are being made to Adventure Sync so it works even better with indoor movement and activities such as cleaning your house and running on a treadmill. 
  • Soon you’ll be able to team up with friends and take on Raid Battles together in Pokémon GO from the comfort of home.
  • Explore: we’re also looking into how we can help players virtually visit and share memories about their favorite real-world places, until they can once again visit them in person.
  • New way to enjoy Pokémon GO Fest are being worked on. More details coming soon!

This week’s bundle is 50 Great Balls for 1 Pokécoin. This bundle will be available until Monday, April 6, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. PDT.
