XP Rebalance Testing Update!

After announcing tests for an XP Rebalance in Australia and New Zealand, Niantic updated their original blog post with the following update: 

UPDATE 11/9/2020: Trainers, we’re excited to announce that we’re running another set of tests for select Trainers around the world. These new tests will also run until Monday, November 16, 2020. Thank you for your continued support.

As more Trainers get access to these tests, new numbers start to come in. It looks like the XP Rebalance is more extensive than we expected! Let’s take a look at what we learned so far.

Other Changes

According to this Reddit post, the following changes have also occurred:

  • You can now earn 3 Hearts with your Buddy for the “Battle Together” part (6 Hearts when excited)

  • You now get 15 PokéBalls for defeating a Team GO Rocket Grunt

EXPERIMENTING XP

What do you think about this XP Rebalance, Trainers? We think it’s great to see that Niantic continues to enhance gameplay in various areas. For Trainers who are already Level 40, this might be an unnecessary update, but everyday new Trainers join the Pokémon GO Community, and they will benefit a lot from this XP rebalance. Are you among the lucky Trainers that have access to this test? Let us know!

Stardust Rebalance pretty please?
