When the coronavirus pandemic exploded last year, Niantic implemented a number of changes in Pokemon GO given how many people were quarantining. The goal was to let players experience the mobile title more easily while staying at home. Now, however, Niantic is looking to implement a few changes.

Pokemon GO will be adding new exploration bonuses that make it more rewarding to play outside “over the next several months”, removing/changing some bonuses introduced last year, and keeping a few ones. Testing will take place in the US and New Zealand starting at the end of July before rolling out to other regions.

New features are in the pipeline for Pokemon GO, Niantic has announced.

First up is the addition of a real-time sky mechanic that mimics a player’s sky light based on their geographical location. Also planned are additional Pokedex classifications that will help players keep track of different Pokémon variants and attributes.

Niantic says that some players will be able to test these features soon. They’ll be available to all later this summer.
