Niantic recently made some changes to the game in the wake of coronavirus pandemic. On the temporary basis, gym interaction distance has been doubled. The distance from which you can interact with Gyms has been temporarily doubled, allowing you to be farther from Gyms and other Trainers as you challenge Raid Bosses.
This change also allows you to spin Photo Discs at Gyms if you are within the doubled distance; however, it will not change the distance required to spin Photo Discs at PokéStops.
Coming to the topic, another Mystery Bonus hour will go live for the game today. Mystery Bonus Hour will feature Double Catch Stardust. Mystery Bonus Hour will happen on April 2, from 6 to 7 pm local time.
Apart from this, new patterns of Pokémon Shirts have arrived in the Style Shop. Pokémon Shirts is an online service that allows players to customize their own original shirt freely using a combination of patterns based on Pokémon.
