At the beginning of August, the Niantic team had decided to disable some Pokémon GO bonuses related to the gameplay changes introduced due to the global health crisis.
The variations to the use of the mobile title were linked to the desire to facilitate compliance with the social distancing, even during videogame fun. Now, however, the software house has decided a partial backtrack, also by virtue of the concerns of many players, who have highlighted the persistence of the risk of contagion and the growing spread of the Delta variant of the Coronavirus.
With the twitter you find at the bottom of this news, the Pokémon GO team has therefore confirmed the decision to reintroduce the possibility of using Gyms and Poké Stops even from a considerable distance. Specifically, the maximum limit for having access to virtual structures is now equal to 80 meters. Coaches will thus be able to continue playing without necessarily having to physically converge at a specific meeting point.
Niantic is currently carefully evaluating the approach to be adopted for the coming months. With the health crisis still ongoing, Pokémon GO’s rules may undergo further changes, which will be communicated by the development team next. 1 September 2021. Meanwhile, fans can celebrate the entry of Galar’s Pokémon into Pokémon GO.
