Niantic has released a new software update for Pokémon GO on iOS, which brings the augmented reality app to version 1.15.0.
As promised, this introduces Daily Bonuses for regular play, lengthens the time that you have to play a Pokémon in an open Gym after defeating the Gym Leader, and alters the ways you can impact Prestige when taking on a rival Gym.
Changes Made In Pokémon GO Update Version 1.15.0
- You’ll earn bonuses for the first Pokémon catch and PokéStop visit each day. You’ll receive a larger bonus when you do this seven days in a row.
- When you defeat the Gym Leader at a rival Gym, there will be a brief period of time where only you will be able to place a Pokémon in the open Gym.
- The amount of Prestige a rival Gym loses when you defeat a regular Gym member has increased. The amount of Prestige gained by training at a friendly Gym has been lowered.
- Minor text fixes
