The COVID-19 pandemic continues to create stuggle for people all around the world. Folks are ordered to stay at home when possible and to avoid groups, crowds, and public places. This makes Pokémon GO a bit difficult, especially when you can’t make routes around PokéStops to collect gear.
Fortunately, Niantic understands this and they’re making it easier to play from home. In this case, they’re making a bundle of Pokéballs and berries for practically free.
From now until April 20, 2020, players can purchase a special bundle from the shop. It contains…
- 30 Pokéballs
- 20 Great Balls
- 15 Razz Berries
- 20 Pinap Berries
Here’s the helpful part: It costs 1 PokéCoin for the bundle. Since 100 coins cost $1, this means this bundle essentially costs one cent.
This is part of a rotating cycle of essentially free content they’ve been providing. After April 20, it’s likely that this 1 coin deal will be moved over to a different product, like insense. This is all part of a continued effort to make the game more easily playable without the need to leave one’s home.
We can only imagine how the many stay-at-home orders have been affecting both the game and the Niantic staff. We appreciate that they’re making the effort to keep things fun for whoever they can.
Stay healthy, trainers!
