Niantic is rolling out a new feature called Today View that will make it easier to keep track of your daily streaks and all the ongoing events in Pokemon Go.
Pokemon Go developer Niantic has made many adjustments to the popular AR game in the wake of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. In addition to canceling a handful of events scheduled to take place this month (including this week’s Lugia Raid event), the studio has implemented a variety of tweaks to make it easier to play from home, including included a handy new feature that will help you keep track of what’s going on in the title.
Niantic introduces a Today View tab in Pokemon Go. This tab will be located in the same menu as your field research and special research tasks, and it will be easier to keep track of what is currently going on in the Among other things, Today View will display current and upcoming events in the game, as well as personal statistics, such as your daily sequences and which Pokémon you currently have to defend the gyms.
Niantic has not announced when the Today View tab will go online in Pokemon Go, but it teases that it will be deployed “soon”. In the meantime, you can read more details about the upcoming feature on the official Pokemon Go site.
In another attempt to make Pokemon Go easier to play from your home, the game now offers additional bonuses indefinitely. For now, you will earn triple the normal amount of Stardust and XP for the first Pokémon you catch each day. The gift limit has also been increased; you can now open up to 30 gifts per day and carry up to 20 in your inventory. Finally, Niantic offers a new 1 PokeCoin pack every day in the Pokemon Go in-game store.
As previously mentioned, Lugia was scheduled to return to raid battles this week, but Niantic has canceled this event. Instead, players will continue to be able to catch Cobalion as a Go Battle League award until March 31. The legendary Pokemon Landorus is expected to debut in Pokemon Go the same day, but it is currently unclear whether the current coronavirus situation will affect those planes as well.
