Pokemon GO Bonus & Rewards List 2020

If you are fond of playing AR games, you’d require no introduction to Pokemon GO. Following its launch in 2016, Niantic has added various features and attractions to the game in order to captivate more users and further grow its fandom. With the traditional Gameplay of catching Pokemons and battling other Pokemon trainers, the game has also added various tasks and events to give out rewards and bonuses to the trainers.

There are various bonuses and rewards that Pokemon GO offers, but most of the trainers are yet unaware of it. Further, we had a hard time finding a comprehensive guide to address all these bonuses in Pokemon GO. To fill this need, we’ve put together a list of some attractive Rewards and Bonuses in Pokemon GO that you should watch out for. We might have missed out on some; but we’ll keep updating this list,

The rewards in the upper set are generally some styling accessories like backpacks and caps. The lower set gets rewarded with Catch Bonus. The higher the medal you achieve, the more catch bonus you get. 
Bronze Silver Gold
Catch Bonus +1 +2 +3

3. Pokemon GO Catch Bonus

It is based on the level of medal you have. The Bronze medal gets +1 catch bonus, Silver medal gets +2 catch bonus and the Gold medal gets +3 catch bonus. The chances of catching a Pokemon is higher for the trainer with Gold medal as compared to the Bronze medal. This means the more Pokemon you catch, higher the chances of catching a Pokemon in the future.

You need to achieve medals to get a Catch bonus. The lower set of medals (in the Pokemon GO medal bonus) rewards with Catch bonus. Some of the medals that can get you a bonus are Swimmer, Kindler, Skier and many more. Complete their tasks and get a catch bonus.

As you complete various tasks and achieve higher medals, higher catch bonuses you get. For example, if you achieve a Gold Swimmer medal then you’ll be rewarded with +3 Catch bonus.
Bronze Silver Gold
Catch Bonus +1 +2 +3

4. Pokemon GO Collector Bonus

You get a Pokemon GO Collector bonus with every 100th catch of the same species. You can check the number of the same pokemons you have by clicking on a particular Pokemon in the Pokedex.

There’s no strategy for this. Once you get the 100th Pokemon of the same species, you’ll get rewarded.

100 XP

5. Pokemon GO Level Bonus

The Pokemon GO level bonus is the bonus you get for getting to higher levels in the game. The higher levels you reach in the game, the better rewards you earn.

You need to level up your trainer to get better Level bonuses. For that you need to get more XP (Experience Points) in the game. You can catch and evolve your Pokemons and also battle with other Pokemons to get more XP.

You can get STAB by using the moves which are similar to your Pokemon type. For example, Charizard will get a STAB on Flying and Fire type moves, but not on Rock-type moves.

If STAB falls true, then 20% will be added to the power of the attack.

9. Pokemon GO Trading Candy Bonus

Pokemon GO Trading is one of the most interesting features in the game. A trainer can trade one of their Pokemons with a friend for any other Pokemon. While people have been using this feature for a long time now, many of them don’t realise that they can earn candies while trading Pokemons.

Everytime you trade a Pokemon with your friend, you can earn up to 3 candies as a Trading candy bonus.

To get a Pokemon Go Trading Candy bonus, you have to trade a pokemon. But before learning how to trade a Pokemon in Pokemon GO, you have to make sure that,

  • You are friends with the person you are trading a Pokemon
  • You are at level 10 or above
  • You are in close proximity with your friend (Around 100m) 

Now, to trade a Pokemon with your friend,

  1. Open Friends feed
  2. Select a friend you want to trade a Pokemon with
  3. Click on Trade
  4. Now, select a Pokemon to trade
  5. Wait for your friend to select a Pokemon for trading
  6. Check the Stardusts required and Click on Confirm to trade your Pokemon

Note: For trading a Pokemon you’ll require Stardusts. The amount of Stardusts required will depend on your Friendship level with your Friend. With higher friendship levels, the stardust required for trading will reduce. For example, trading an owned Shiny Pokemon will have a Stardust cost of 16,000 for Great Friends and it will be 800 for Best Friends.
