Niantic Labs recently announced the next major feature that will be coming to Pokémon GO in a future update—daily bonus rewards.
According to a new post on the Pokémon GO website, daily bonus rewards will offer added incentives for completing certain in-game tasks on a daily basis, with the full effects of the daily bonuses being granted once a player attains a seven-day streak. The bonuses will work as follows:
- The first Pokémon caught each day will award a bonus of 500 XP and 600 Stardust
- Catching at least one Pokémon per day for seven days in a row will award a bonus of 2,000 XP and 2,400 Stardust
- The first PokéStop visited each day will grant a bonus of 500 XP and a few extra items
- Visiting at least one PokéStop each day for seven days straight will award 2,000 XP and a large cache of bonus items
The game will automatically keep track of a player’s daily bonuses and will notify them of how many more days are needed to attain the seven-day streak. A release window for the daily bonus rewards update hasn’t been announced yet, but the fact that Niantic is now detailing the feature indicates that it should be ready soon.
