After community backlash, Pokemon GO reinstates a COVID safety and accessibility feature

Pokemon GO announced yesterday that it will permanently keep an in-game feature that made the game easier to play while social distancing. Introduced at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the feature doubled the interaction radius around key augmented reality landmarks that are essential to gameplay. Though Niantic — parent company to Pokemon GO — removed the feature earlier this month, it chose to permanently reinstate it after weeks of community- and creator-led backlash.


Trainers – we’re looking forward to sharing our plans as a result of the task force on September 1, but one thing does not have to wait! From now on, 80 meters will be the base interaction radius for PokeStops and Gyms globally. (1/2)
