Pokemon Go updates
As of 1st October at 1pm PDT, the following changes will be made:
Hatch Distance will return to normal for Eggs. The increased effectiveness of Incense will now apply only while walking. Your Buddy Pokémon will now bring you Gifts only when you have nearly run out. This will happen only once per day. You will still have a higher chance of getting a Gift when you spin a PokéStop. However, you won’t be guaranteed to get a Gift.
