Pokemon Go Will Start Testing Daily Encounters and Free Items
At first, only a limited number of trainers will receive these features.
Trainers, two interesting tests are happening with a limited number of players in Pokemon Go.
In a news post, Niantic, the developer of Pokemon Go, said “[a] limited group of Trainers” will receive a new kind of Incense that will always remain active on their profile. This Incense will attract one Pokemon to their location each day.
If you have the Incense, the Pokemon that is attracted to you each day will only appear for you to capture. That is, even if you’re playing near another trainer in the real world, they won’t see the Pokemon that has been attracted to you by this special Incense.
The other test will also begin with “a small number of Trainers.” These players will be able to collect a free box of items each day from the in-game Shop. Players in this test will see a notification on the game’s “Shop” button whenever their free box becomes available each day.
Niantic said these boxes “will contain different items each time.”
Even if you aren’t one of the trainers included in these tests, there’s still the chance that you can receive them later.
“We will be rolling these features out over the coming months to more Trainers, so keep an eye out for updates.”
