Recent changes to the game has seen the “Streak” rules in which you get generously rewarded if you can log one Pokestop and/or one Catch per day over a 7 day streak. This has meant my progression from Level 19 to 20 was much quicker and I haven’t had to walk a ridiculous amount catching Weedles and Pidgeys just to get XP. I also managed to get a Wartortle by walking with my Squirtle and collecting candy so that rule has been a nice addition too. Finally I was walking to the shops on Friday and I actually saw (and caught) a Ninetales! My son was made up the next morning to see it!
