If you’ve set aside your Pokémon Go obsession, it might be time to pick it back up again. Niantic has just announced a line-up of updates for the end of the year, some of which are features that we’ve been pining for since the start of the game.
While you’re at it, why not take the game on some of your real-life Pokémon adventures – check out the Pokémon Run, a Research Exhibition, life-sized Pokémon and collectible plushies at the airport and the return of the Pokémon Cafe.
1. Daily bonuses
The daily bonuses reward players with an extra 500 XP and 600 Stardust for the first catch of the day, and catching Pokémon every day for seven days straight will earn you 2,000 XP and 2,400 Stardust.
Your first PokéStop spin of the day will earn you 500 XP and additional items, and visiting a PokéStop every day for seven days straight will earn you 2,000 XP and even more additional items. This feature was rolled out on 7 Nov.
