Pokemon Go’s April Community Day returns to a three-hour event, stars Stufful

Niantic is bringing Community Day back to a pre-pandemic timeframe. The April Pokemon Go Community Day will be the first Community Day event since the pandemic started to last only three hours instead of six. According to Niantic, it is shifting back to a three-hour event because apparently only 5% of players particpate for more than three hours. Also, the company said people aren’t out and about at the same time with the longer event, which apparently doesn’t foster a sense of community as less people are around at the same time to “play together and connect outside.” “In 2020,…

Pokemon Go Community Days for March through May dated

And there’s plenty to do while you wait. Niantic Labs has announced the dates for the next three Pokemon Go Community Days.

Pokemon Go developer reverses PokeStop changes after community protest

Pokemon Go PokeStop spin distance has been increased after community backlash. Niantic Labs has reverted recent changes made to the spin distance in Pokemon Go, allowing players to hit up PokeStops from a safer distance than what was implemented earlier this month. Now, instead of a 40-meter distance needed to spin a PokeStop, players will only need to be 80 meters aways to take a spin. See, before corona raised its wretched head, the distance to spin a PokeStop in the game was 40 meters. This was fine and dandy when there wasn’t the possibility of getting sick. It allowed…
