Game Changes

Pokémon Go also announced that it’s continuing to work on changes to make sure that the game can be enjoyed in individual settings and from home.

For Raid Battles, players are going to have the Remote Raid Pass. With these, they can join any Raid Battle that is on the Nearby screen wherever they may be. Then at midnight every day, players get bonus tasks without the need to spin a PokéStop. These are going to be different from Field Research tasks and will focus on activities that can be completed from home.

So what else is coming to the game? Well, your Buddy Pokémon can now bring Gifts if you start to run low. That’s right, if ever you run low on Gifts, your buddy is going to nearby PokéStops in order to get more for you.

Another change that’s going to arrive is in regards to powering up your Pokémon. This has been an issue for many players as this process typically takes some time. However, once the update arrives, players can give their Pokémon all the Candies and Stardust needed in order to up them to the needed CP level immediately.
