Updates to temporary bonuses

Trainers, 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.

Please be aware of your surroundings and follow guidelines from local health authorities when playing Pokémon GO. Upcoming events are subject to change.

The official Pokémon website has announced further details about the weeklong event focused on Bug types, battles, and raids that takes place from Friday, September 11th, 2020, at 8:00 a.m. to Thursday, September 17th, 2020, at 10:00 p.m. local time.

Mega Evolve a Beedrill and Use It in Battle to Help Unlock Mega Houndoom

Celebrate the debut of Mega Evolution in Pokémon GO with a weeklong event focused on Bug types, battles, and raids!

Mega Evolution has come to Pokémon GO, and you can hone your battle skills with your Mega-Evolved Pokémon during a special weeklong event. From Friday, September 11, 2020, at 8:00 a.m. to Thursday, September 17, 2020, at 10:00 p.m. local time, take part in Gym battles, Team GO Rocket battles, and Trainer Battles (excluding GO Battle League battles). If Trainers win 275 million of these battles before the event ends globally, they'll unlock Mega Raids featuring Mega Houndoom!

During the week, you'll also be able to enjoy a number of other bonuses. To start, the following Bug-type Pokémon will be appearing more frequently in the wild: Caterpie, Weedle, Paras, Venonat, Scyther, Pinsir, Ledyba, Spinarak, Wurmple, Kricketot, and Burmy. If you're lucky, you might even encounter a Shiny Ledyba!

More Bug-type encounters aren't all you can look forward to—there will also be raid- and battle-focused Timed Research available, and event-exclusive Field Research tasks can reward you with Mega Energy for your Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, or Beedrill! Remember that when you use Mega Beedrill in battles (excluding Raid Battles) during the event period, it'll receive a temporary CP boost, making it even more of a force to be reckoned with.

Finally, during this time, Pokémon that are weak to Bug-type attacks and Flying-type attacks will be appearing more often in raids. Team GO Rocket will also be using different Shadow Pokémon than before, so be sure to Mega Evolve Beedrill before you take it into battle!

Have fun catching Bug-type Pokémon and battling with Mega Beedrill during this event, Trainers!

The following new attack will be added to Pokémon GO.

The following attacks have been updated for Trainer Battles.

Along with these updates to existing attacks, the following Pokémon can learn an attack it couldn’t before.
  • Vespiquen and Signal Beam: This powerful Bug-type attack is a perfect fit for a powerful Bug-type Pokémon like Vespiquen.
We’re also excited to give you a sneak peek at the next season. Season 5 will be shorter than previous seasons, at just three weeks long. Additionally, ratings won’t be in effect for this season: you’ll progress through the ranks by winning a certain number of battles. We hope to see Trainers try out new strategies, test different battle teams, and prepare for Season 6!
