Pokemon GO introducing daily guaranteed Pokemon encounters, daily free boxes in the shop
Niantic is continuing to explore ways to adapt Pokemon GO’s gameplay to invididual settings. As part of that, two new features have introduced: daily guaranteed Pokemon encounters and daily free boxes.
Here’s the full rundown:
Daily guaranteed Pokémon encounters
A limited group of Trainers will soon get a special visit from Professor Willow! If you’re part of this test, he’ll tell you that he’s been working on a special kind of Incense. This Incense won’t appear in your Item Bag, but it’ll be active after Professor Willow gives it to you, attracting a Pokémon once a day that’ll appear only for you. Be sure to check the game every day to see what Pokémon will appear!
Daily Free Boxes in the shop
Soon, a small number of Trainers will be able to receive a free box of items daily in the shop! If you’re part of this test, the Shop button will display a notification when a Daily Free Box is available. To get your Daily Free Box, simply go to the shop and claim the box in the Free section. The box will contain different items each time, so be sure to claim your Daily Free Box every day to see what items you get!
Niantic says it will roll out the above features “over the coming months to more Trainers”.
