The Niantic team is also responding to the spread of the corona virus and has canceled the planned Community Days for Pokémon GO and Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. In the case of Pokémon GO, Abra should show up in the game world on March 15, 2020. A new date has not yet been given. The managers at Niantic have shared a short statement on the current situation on Twitter.
Because of the cancellation, the creators want to make it easier to play Pokémon GO from home. For this reason, there is currently an exclusive box in the in-game shop with 30 copies of the smoke that is used to attract Pokémon. The item now also stops for 60 minutes instead of half an hour. The package is available for just 1 PokéCoin in the mobile game.
In addition, Niantic will expand the Pokémon's habitats somewhat and generally make more pocket monsters appear in the game world. All PokéStops also drop gifts more often. The egg walking distance has also been reduced by half. The team would like to share more details in the future via Pokémon GO's social media channels.
By the way, today, March 13, 2020, the first season of competitive in-game coaching will also start. If you are victorious in duels against your opponents, you can advance in the leagues and secure exclusive rewards.
