    Niantic has announced “daily bonuses” and they’re saying it’s “coming soon.”

    Here’s the text of their announcement, but you can find the source link here.

    More bonuses, more fun! Daily bonuses are coming...
    Trainers,

    We want to provide you a detailed look at a new feature coming soon to Pokémon GO - Daily bonuses! Trainers will soon be able to receive a bonus for certain daily activities, including catching a Pokémon or visiting a PokéStop once a day. You’ll earn a larger bonus if you do this seven days in a row!

    Catching a Pokémon every day will earn the following bonus:
    500 XP
    600 Stardust

    Catching a Pokémon every day for 7 days straight will earn the following larger bonus:
    2,000 XP
    2,400 Stardust

    Visiting a PokéStop and spinning the Photo Disc every day will earn the following bonus:
    500 XP
    A number of additional items

    Visiting a PokéStop every day for 7 days straight will earn the following larger bonus:
    2,000 XP
    A greater number of additional items

    If you catch a Pokémon at any time on Tuesday local time, you’ll be eligible for the next daily bonus on Wednesday at 12 AM local time.


    The Pokémon GO team

    (All emphasis, i.e. underlining, bolded text, colored text, were added by me.)

    ———————————

    And now, here are some questions that have come to my mind.

    That last clause, the one I highlighted in red, kind of confuses me. Maybe because I haven’t had sufficient cafffeine yet?

    So the first two items (the ones involving catching Pokémon) are not granted immediately upon catching the Pokémon, but rather, you have to wait at least until the next day at 12:00 AM? And this only applies on Tuesdays, or is Tuesday just given as an arbitrary example, meaning, in fact, that it applies any any given day of the week?

    And the last two items (the ones involving the visiting of PokéStops) are granted immediately, or are you forced to wait until at leasat the next day at 12:00AM also?

    You must complete the complete one day to be eligible for the next. It kind of sounds like their week starts on Tuesday for the weekly bonus.

    Thank you kindly for your reply. I’m afraid I’m going to have to bother you with one question, though: When you say, "complete the day,” do you mean wait 24 hours between actions? For example, with the Pokéstop bonus, if I spin the Pokéstop at 11:55PM, and then wait 5 minutes for it to reset, and spin it again at 12:00 midnight, it won’t count as two consecutive days towards the seven-day bonus? I know that details are scant at the moment!

    Perhaps they’ll have some kind of countdown icon somewhere, similar to the Defender Bonus collection countdown… something like: “Days Remaining for Weekly Bonus: x” (obviously with fewer words). That’d really be helpful so that the user doesn’t have to remember where he’s at with that seven-day larger bonus.

    Thanks again, man!

    It sounds to me that it would work that way yes, since the days start at 12:00am.
