Pokemon GO adjusts gameplay experiences to combat coronavirus spreading
As such, Niantic announced some changes it plans to implement in its game in the coming days. The first adjustments have already been launched and are meant to allow fans to play the game indoors.
- A one-time purchase bundle of 30 Incense for 1 PokéCoin. Incense will also last for one hour.
- 1/2 Hatch Distance when Eggs are placed into Incubators during this time period
- PokéStops will now drop Gifts more frequently
- Pokémon habitats will increase and more Pokémon will be appearing in the wild
Similar changes will be made to Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, another game handled by Niantic, which had some of its events canceled due to coronavirus outbreak.
