Pokemon Go Party Challenges

Players have been asking for improvements on Party Play, and Pokemon Go has silently slided an improvement adding Encounters.

For those Pokemon Go players who enjoy partying up, the Party Play feature was one of the best things Niantic added to the game. But as of lately, trainers have been demanding better rewards to be added to the game.

And now, Pokemon Go has finally added Reward Encounters to the Party Challenges, which will grant a random encounter with one of the featured Pokemon upon completing them. They’ve also increased the yield for the rest of the rewards, which include more Stardust, PokeBalls, and Items.

In this post shared by Reddit user ‘WishWilling5673’ we can see how the new reward system adds encounters to the rotation. However, it is also worth mentioning that this revision is being rolled out, and not all players will be able to enjoy it instantly.

Pokemon Go players are already praising Niantic for taking the initiative and adding these rewards to Party Play Challenges. One of them said: “I got 2 Diglett and a Combee. All party members got the same Pokemon each time.”

According to the excited players, some of the rewards for these encounters also include Eeveelutions, and rare Pokemon like Lapras, and Beldun.

Here’s a list of some of the Party Challenges discovered so far and their rewards:

  • Walk 2KM: Beldum, Exeggcute, Eevee.
  • 10 Nice throws: Diglett.
  • 10 Excellent throws: Lapras.
  • Catch 20 Pokemon in Ultra Balls: Jolteon.
  • Catch 20 Pokemon in Great Balls: Vaporeon.
  • Make 20 Curveball throws: Binacle.
  • Make 25 Nice Throws: Koffing.
  • Make 20 Great Throws: Cherubi.
  • Make 10 Excellent Throws: Galarian Weezing.

This silent improvement added just like the new Avatar Customization Feature, was enough to make players enthusiastic, as most of them agree it’s a “step in the right direction” for Pokemon Go.
