Changes to XL Candy

Starting with the Season of Go and apparently moving forward, the level threshold to earn XL Candy will be lowered from 40 to 31, making the system far more inclusive for the majority of players.

Seasonal Bonuses

  • Friendship Bonus increased for Raid damage
  • Lure Module duration increased to 1 hour
  • +1 Special Trade per Day
  • +1 Candy from Trading Pokemon
  • Guaranteed XL Candy from Trades for players Lv.31 and over
  • Pokestops will be guaranteed to drop Gifts when spun
  • Remote raid damage will be increased 

Community Days

While we don't have any hard information, we do know the dates of all three prime Community Days for the Season of Go:

  • Saturday, June 25
  • Sunday, July 17
  • Saturday, August 13

And That's It

Yeah, this one is a bit sparce. Still, this is the season that will focus on Go Fest, so we have a lot yet to be revealed. We've probably got a lot ahead, so we'll drop updates as Niantic announces them!
